Crete Carrier Corp. has announced it will start paying its drivers “practical route” miles, effective Oct. 1. Currently, the company pays industry-standard “short route” miles through its Crete Carrier operation.
The change will “more accurately reflect Crete Carrier’s commitment to its drivers,” stated the company. It will affect 5,600 company drivers and owner-operators.
“Even though paying practical route miles is not the standard in our industry, we made this change with the best interests of our drivers in mind,” said Tonn Ostergard, president & CEO.
