R & R Trucking, Inc. Offers Company Teams Guaranteed Pay
Pay Protection Plan Ensures Team Drivers Peace of Mind
JOPLIN, Mo. April 17, 2017
R & R Trucking, Inc. recently announced its new Pay Protection Plan for company team drivers. The Pay Protection Plan guarantees $2,000 per week for each company team -- $1,000 per driver.
“Drivers have bills to pay just like everyone else, and those bills come due at different times during the month,” says Phil Nelson, R & R CEO. “Our drivers are paid by the mile and are out on the road weeks at a time. If a company team is not off, and they are in the system as available for dispatch, the new Pay Protection Plan gives them the assurance they will always have a guaranteed weekly paycheck -- even during cyclical times when shipment movements are slow.”
In 2016, R & R reported their top 10 company teams averaged over $131,000 annually, the equivalent to .76 per mile. R & R team drivers also earn two days off for each over-the-road (OTR) week out.
“Driver retention at R & R is far better than the industry norm,” says Kevin McKelvy, Vice President of Administration for R & R. “We believe our Pay Protection Plan is one more way to elevate retention within the company.”
