FFE Transportation Services Inc has announced the highest rate increase in more than 70 years for independent contractors.

Effective April 2, 2018, the company will issue an across-the-board increase in its cents-per-mile and stop rate for all current and future independent contractors providing capacity to FFE.

“This is a significant rate increase that will put us in the top tier for rates offered for additional capacity to independent contractors,” said Jim Richards, president and CEO. “Our LTL business is very strong—the strongest I’ve seen in 30 years—and we’re excited that we are able to allow our independent contractors the opportunity to increase their business revenue.

“Contracting with high-quality independent contractors is a priority with us, and, because FFE has 13 service centers throughout the country, independent contractors have the ability to grow their businesses without constantly being away from home,” said Richards. “As the largest refrigerated LTL carrier in the nation, we’re committed to providing our business partners with everything they need to be successful, from competitive contract rates, to being one of the safest fleets in the country.”

FFE, an asset-based temperature-controlled carrier headquartered in Dallas TX, has 13 locations nationwide providing cold storage and break-bulk services. Founded in 1946, It says it is the only US temperature-controlled transportation services that offers LTL services throughout the continental United States.
