C.R. England Announces Historic Driver Pay Increase

| April 26, 2021

Raising driver pay is another indicator C.R. England is committed to providing our employees with a long-term career path they can count on financially

C.R. England, one of the nation’s leaders in transportation solutions, has announced its largest driver pay raise in company history and third historic pay increase for drivers since 2018. The pay increase will benefit C.R. England’s line haul drivers in the Over the Road Division (OTR) and drivers in training and takes effect April 22, 2021.

“I am thrilled to announce our biggest OTR pay increase in company history,” said Chad England, C.R. England CEO. “This increase benefits every OTR driver that is paid mileage pay, which makes up the vast majority of our OTR fleet. It applies to drivers at every seniority level and to our current length of trip pay bands. Raising driver pay is another indicator C.R. England is committed to providing our employees with a long-term career path they can count on financially. We truly value the people that make our company great and will continue to find more opportunities to give back to the driving professionals who make C.R. England what it is today.”

C.R. England’s OTR group already offers some of the best miles in the industry, and paired with these new pay rates, it adds up to substantial paychecks. This represents the largest percentage overall pay increase in company history and combined with other increases since 2018, means average C.R. England driver pay checks have increased 50 percent during that time. Additionally, C.R. England projects new drivers could expect to make more than 35 percent more in compensation compared to what their counterparts made last year.

This increase aligns pay to be consistent with the highly competitive pay rates in C.R. England’s Dedicated and Intermodal Divisions, where drivers already receive substantial compensation.

Through the company-sponsored One Initiative, C.R. England drivers are also able to give back to the community. With each load delivered, a meal is donated to one of 22 food banks to provide a meal to a hungry child. Since 2018, funding for more than 6.4 million meals have been donated to food banks nationwide.
