ST LOUIS, Mo., March 13, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Mid America Logistics, one of the fastest growing technology-enabled logistics and trucking companies in North America, has announced a new driver program called ‘No More Counting Miles’ as a transparent driver pay model.
The program allows single or team Drivers to choose 30, 60, or 90 day tours and provide guaranteed compensation that escalates based on length of the tour. Drivers have control of their start date of each tour and are not obligated to start another tour until they contractually commit to another tour.
Mid America Logistics’ Managing Partner and co-founder, Sam Baisch, stated, “The biggest pain point in the trucking industry is staying competitive against over 500,000 registered trucking companies in the US. Our Logistics division has found new innovative ways to over double in size and we used that innovation to create a market disrupter for our trucking division.” Baisch continued, “in creating this program we addressed the two greatest irritants of drivers; driver payroll and control of their personal time. This gives the control back in the drivers hands.”
Under Mid America Logistics’ new program, Solo Drivers are compensated a fixed gross amount of either $6,500, $14,000, and $24,000 for 30, 60, and 90 day tours respectively. Team drivers are compensated $17,000, $38,000 and $63,000 for the same respective tour periods.
Drivers are contracted on tours independently and entitled to the published amounts and paid weekly. They are provided paid orientation for their first tour and issued a late model Freightliner Cascadia Tractor and trailer. If a Driver wishes to continue driving for Mid America Logistics, they simply contract for an additional tour period. Mid America will entertain drivers under this program with a minimum of two years of long haul driving experience and a clean driving and criminal record.
“Oftentimes drivers are lured away based on a promise of making six figures a year and never get the miles to do so,” said Ann Searles the Asset Operations Manager of Mid America Logistics. “Now we have the ability to provide a fixed model that is transparent where we pay drivers for their time while respecting their family lives”.
