Prime Inc., a refrigerated/ flatbed/ tanker carrier and logistics firm, has increased starting pay for drivers in its Prime Tanker Division to 41 cents per mile. The company noted this increase in pay “adds to a substantial list of driver benefits as well as excellent home time for drivers in the Tanker Division.”

“It has always been our policy at Prime to share our growth and success with our drivers,” said John Hancock, director of training and driver recruiting. “As the Tanker Division at Prime experiences gains, we are passing on this success to our fleet through an increase in driver pay.”

What’s more, according to Prime, “unlike many other companies in the trucking industry,” Prime inc. did not decrease driver pay when the economy slowed. “

This is a true increase in pay for our tanker drivers – we’re not getting back to where we were before the tough economy hit,” said Hancock. “Prime never cut driver pay during the volatile economic conditions of the past couple of years.

“Not only do our drivers in the Tanker Division have great earnings, but they also drive some of the best equipment on the road,” he added. “Prime offers access to great equipment for driver associates and independent contractors.”

Prime has tanker driver slots are available in many different locations throughout North America, including Fort Wayne, IN; Decatur, IN.; Louisville, KY.; Columbus, OH; Raleigh, NC; Chicago, IL, ; and Pittsburgh, PA.
