Averitt enhances mileage rate for regional drivers

Averitt enhances mileage rate for regional drivers

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. –Averitt Express recently announced pay enhancements for newly hired regional truckload drivers.

Experienced over-the-road driving associates will now start at 46 cents per mile. For drivers with less than six months of experience, this rate will begin after they complete one of Averitt’s training programs.

The pay enhancement is part of Averitt’s strong benefits package and other amenities, including modern trucks and equipment that feature dynamic safety technology. Averitt also provides Driver Support Centers throughout its network that offer drivers the comforts of home, such as washers and dryers, showers, wireless internet and workout areas.

Additionally, Averitt offers a driver referral program that pays up to $2,750 for the hiring of a referred candidate, and a rewards program that incentivizes positive actions such as achieving operational goals and safe-driving milestones.

Other recent enhancements for Averitt regional truckload drivers include 100% no-touch freight, the opportunity to drive solo with six months experience, and hazardous materials and tanker endorsements are no longer required in order to be hired.

“We’re proud to provide our regional drivers with competitive pay, as well as a great benefits package and positive working environment,” said Elise Leeson, Averitt’s vice president of human resources. “All of these are part of our overall commitment to providing a high quality of life for our driving force, and making sure our team is strong for the long haul.”
