Increased Incentives to Alleviate Driver Shortage

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

As the economy improves, the demand for commercial truck drivers increases.  A lot of trucking companies are getting on board with increasing their driver pay and incentives.

Most trucking companies offer major benefits to their employees. These benefits include medical, dental, vision, life insurance and retirement plans.  Holiday, sick time and vacation time are also a part of most companies’ incentive offerings.   

The great news for new drivers and those on the verge of beginning a CDL program is that these already great benefits offered are being raised.  Some of the major carrier companies have already announced these increases such as Swift Transportation, U.S. Xpress Enterprises, Con-Way Truckload and Transport America.

"Smith and Solomon is a great school. I had enrolled my husband and it has been a blessing. After taking his classes he has been employed and making nice money so we dont have to worry about daily struggles that concerned us before. Everyone was respectful helpful and very knowledgeable of what they were doing. My husband I are very pleased with the service we received and would recommend this school for quick and courteous services. I would also like to say a huge Thankyou to Mack, Mercedes, Bill and Kiki for all of your help it greatly appreciated and Keep it up!!!!"
