US Xpress, the second-largest privately held trucking company, is proud to announce an increase in the base mileage pay for Over-the-Road (OTR) solo truck drivers by an average of 13% and the elimination of the sliding pay scale. US Xpress team pay is already in the top 5% in the industry. With this increase, all US Xpress drivers will earn a base pay rate that is in the top 5-10% in the industry. This increase was implemented along with other compensation changes to ensure the company continues to recruit and retain the industry’s elite and most qualified drivers. “The trucking industry has and will always remain the lifeblood of the U.S. economy.
