Arkansas-based CalArk is the latest motor carrier to announce a pay increase for its drivers. Company drivers will soon see their wages hiked up 3 cents per mile.
The increase is slated to kick in on Dec. 2, and individual truckers driving for CalArk can also receive a 2 cents-per-mile bonus when logging more than 11,250 authorized miles each month. Teams working for the carrier can also collect the bonus, but must drive 19,200 miles in a one-month period.
In addition to the pay increase and monthly bonuses, CalArk will also offer major medical coverage and prescription coverage. At a cost of $45 each week, the medical coverage will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2015.
