Big G Express Announces Pay Raise And New Mileage Program For Drivers

November, 2018

Shelbyville, TN… Big G Express, Inc., one of the nation’s leading truckload carriers, recently announced big changes to its driver pay. The employee-owned company plans to roll out a 2 cents per mile pay increase as well as switch to a PC*Miler practical miles pay program later this month.

“Our drivers have been asking to be paid on practical miles for a while now and we’re listening,” said Randy Vernon, president of Big G Express. “Big G is constantly looking for ways we can maximize our drivers’ earning potential and we’re excited to make these major changes to driver pay.”

The PC*Miler practical miles pay program compensates drivers according to the driving routes and distances they are most likely to take. Big G Express previously used the PC*Miler short miles program, which pays drivers on the most direct route possible. By using PC*Miler practical miles, Big G Express drivers can expect more accurate pay to the miles they actually drive. The company’s 2 cents per mile pay increase brings driver starting pay to 42 cents per mile with top out pay at 52 cents per mile. Both pay changes will begin on August 26, 2018.

“Not only will Big G drivers earn more than ever with these changes to pay, but they’ll also continue to receive our monthly mileage bonus of 1 cent per mile for every mile over 11,000,” said Vernon. “We’re also excited to share that the pay macro is back on Qualcomm as of today.”

Other bonus pay opportunities available at Big G Express include a semiannual fuel/performance bonus of .5 cents per mile in June and December and an annual .5 cent per mile safety bonus at the end of the year. Drivers at Big G Express also enjoy a competitive benefits package that includes life, disability, health, vision and dental insurance options; late model equipment and technology; retirement benefits; and a family-oriented atmosphere.
