Montgomery Transport Announces Largest Pay Increase in Company History
Montgomery Transport, a leading flatbed carrier based in Birmingham, Ala., has announced a $.03 cents-per-mile (CPM) pay increase for drivers. They have also extended their driver appreciation pay incentive an additional month through the end of February.
"We are so excited to be able to offer this well-deserved pay increase, recognizing our professional drivers for their service and dedication coming out of a difficult year. Our perseverance as a company and team has made me incredibly proud. This pay increase is the largest we have had in company history and a great way to celebrate our upcoming 10-year anniversary," says Rollins Montgomery, CEO of Montgomery Transport.
Effective March 2, 2021, all current drivers will receive a $.03 CPM increase on all miles. The pay increase operates in conjunction with the loyalty pay incentive making even higher earnings possible for Montgomery Transport drivers. The tiered loyalty pay recognizes that prior loyalty tenure to their previous employer shows great character and drivers can earn up to an additional $.03 CPM. Drivers will also continue to receive the annual $.01 CPM tenure pay increase.
In addition to this pay increase, the carrier is extending its Driver Appreciation Pay in recognition of the hard work and dedication of its driving force. This program enables company drivers to earn an additional $.02 CPM for all miles they drive through February 28. Drivers are eligible immediately upon hire.
"These pay programs add up to huge boosts in earnings for professional and loyal flatbed drivers - even more so since we pay on practical miles rather than short miles, averaging a 4% variable increase. Our most tenured drivers are forecasted to earn up to $.66 cents per mile," says Montgomery. "We're always looking for ways to reward our most valuable asset behind the wheel."
