USA Truck Hikes Pay Up to 38% for Some Independent Drivers

USA Truck Inc., headquartered in Van Buren, Ark., announced pay increases of up to 38 percent for some independent contractors.

The carrier’s Independent Contractor Compensation Program provides an improved mileage rate program for all new independent drivers. Effective Oct. 1, rates were revised to $1.02 to $1.35 per mile, depending on the length of haul.

Independent contractors will also receive substantial discounts on retail fuel while fueling at an in-network fuel stop, preferred labor rates and discounted parts at USA Truck maintenance facilities.

“Our continued success in serving our customers derives from selecting the best contractors available, which we can do by providing fair and equitable compensation,” said Martin Tewari, USA’s president of trucking. “This represents a significant commitment by USA Truck to the success of our independent contractors.”
