Werner announces pay raise for company drivers

By Land Line staff | 12/2/2015

More than 1,400 company drivers for Werner Enterprise are expected to receive a significant pay raise starting Jan. 1.

The Omaha-based truckload transportation and logistics provider announced on Nov. 30 that it would be giving its 48-state solo van company drivers in the One-Way Truckload Van fleet an average raise of $5,000. The announcement comes after a Nov. 3 announcement that the company would be giving a $10,000 raise for its owner-operators, the largest per-mile increase in its history.

“We consistently review compensation packages to see where improvements can and should be made,” Werner’s president and COO Derek Leathers said in the release. “Pay increases are one piece of our multifaceted approach to attract and retain the best in the industry and make Werner the employer of choice.”

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