Base & Performance Pay
We believe that trucking should be as rewarding as it is tough. For that reason, JLE offers the best pay package in the nation for our professional Flatbed Company drivers. We want to ensure that our drivers have the ability to take home an honest paycheck that truly reflects their sacrifices and efforts.
Our pay package enables JLE drivers to average $70,000 annually. How do we do it?
- 27% of Linehaul Base Rate: First, on day one, JLE drivers earn 27% of linehaul as their base rate before any accessorial pay or individual performance bonus pay. Each year of tenure earns our drivers another 1%, up to a max of 30% of linehaul. We believe this firmly aligns our drivers, dispatchers, operations and sales teams together to ensure everyone wins. If the company is making more money, the driver is too! We are all driven to keep you moving!
- Healthy Accessorial & Detention Pay: Second, JLE drivers earn accessorial pay for the extra effort they need to put in to haul certain freight for our customers. We pay $35 for each required Tarp, $20 for each drop or pick, and layover pay when required. We know that no one likes to wait, but if our drivers do have to sit for more than two hours, we pay $15 per hour Detention.
- Individual Performance & Safety Incentives: Lastly, JLE drivers can earn an additional 10% added to their weekly base pay for performing their job safely and efficiently. This means if you are a safe driver, who manages your clock and arrives on-time, you can expect an additional 10% every week. For example, if you earned $1500 in pay, your performance bonus would be an additional $150.
- Transition & Referral Pay: We know it is a hard decision to start a new job, that's why we are committed to making every new JLE driver feel confident that they can earn a fair living while they learn new lanes, customers and how to work with their dispatch team. New drivers, who meet minimum performance requirements, are guaranteed a weekly pay of $1100 for their first 90 days. Plus we offer $3000 in referral pay for every qualified driver you refer to JLE. Now, that’s what we call winning!
