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 earn upwards of $65,000 annually. How do we do it?
Generous Per-Mile Base Rate: First, JLE drivers earn between $0.50 - $0.55 per mile base rate before any accessorial pay or individual performance bonus pay. How many miles do JLE drivers typically get? It all depends on how you like to run – Sure, we have some drivers that consistently get more than 12,000 miles per month, but the majority of our drivers average more than 9,000 miles per month. We like 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 up to $0.05 per mile for safety compliance, mileage production and fuel efficiency (long idle and moving MPG), as well as $1500 for every single quality driver that you recruit to join our team… So, considering that more than 65% of JLE drivers earn individual performance and safety bonuses each month, our drivers can make up to $0.60 per mile, even before any accessorial or recruitment pay. Now, that’s what we call winning!
As part of our continued commitment to servicing the best professional drivers in the industry, JLE Industries is happy to announce a base pay increase across all experience levels. Watch the video from CEO Evan Pohaski below:
