CFI to pay drivers based on practical miles

| Friday, September 02, 2005

Contract Freighters Inc., an international truckload carrier based in Joplin, MO, announced it will begin compensating drivers based on Rand McNally Practical Route Miles rather than the industry-standard Short Route Miles.

The effective date is Dec. 1, 2005, and CFI says it will pay both company drivers and owner-operators based on practical miles, an effort to more closely match paid miles with those miles that are actually driven. This change will be equivalent to a 3.5 percent increasefor CFI’s drivers
