C R England Inc has announced its second multi-million-dollar driver pay increase in the past eight months. The pay raise will benefit solos, teams and trainers in C R England’s National, Regional, and Training Divisions and took effect January 31, 2019.
“Including today’s pay increase, C R England has invested an annualized amount of over 30 million dollars in driver pay increases in the last eight months,” said Chad England, chief executive officer. “This increase comes just eight months after over the road (OTR) drivers received the largest driver compensation increase in the 99-year history of the company. Raising pay is an indicator C R England is committed to providing our employees with a long-term career path they can count on financially.”
With today’s announcement, every line-haul National and Regional driver received a pay increase. This includes solos, teams and trainers. Trainers will continue to be the highest-paid group of drivers at C R England. In addition to these increases, the company continues to evaluate and adjust pay for its already highly paid drivers in the Dedicated and Intermodal divisions.
C R England is an industry leader in length of haul and offers benefits such as detention pay, referral bonuses and competitive health insurance plans. The company also offers significant long-term career opportunities in all its divisions. About 95% of drivers who complete Phase 2 are trainers or in a Dedicated, Intermodal, Regional or OTR set run. In 2018, the company added 755 new Dedicated driving jobs. Almost 2,000 C R England drivers get home daily or almost every day.
Through the company-sponsored One Initiative, drivers can give back to the community. With each load delivered, a meal is donated to one of 22 food banks to provide a meal to a hungry child. More than 1.6 million meals were donated in 2018.
Founded in 1920, C R England is headquartered in Salt Lake City UT and is one of North America’s largest refrigerated transportation companies. Its services include National, Mexico, and Regional Truckload service in addition to Dedicated and Intermodal services.
