Werner announces pay increases for owner-operators

| 11/12/2015

Omaha-based Werner Enterprises has announced its largest per mile increase for owner-operators in the company’s history. The pay raise, says the Nebraska mega-carrier, could earn drivers thousands of dollars more each year.

Solo van drivers in all 48 states of Werner’s operation will now earn the equivalent of a $10,000 a year pay increase, according to a press release. Effective on Nov. 3, approximately a third of Werner’s owner-operator fleet will be affected.

Werner also announced increases in regional routes and dedicated opportunities for owner-operators. Owner-operators can also earn a special interest rate as low as 7.99 percent for low-mileage truck purchases.

Founded in 1956, Werner is a transportation and logistics company that operates worldwide. More information can be found at werner.com.
