FFE escalates driver pay

Jan. 5, 2021
Temperature-controlled carrier announces 25% pay increase for linehaul solo company drivers, starting in January

Frozen Food Express (FFE), an asset-based, temperature-controlled LTL carrier, plans to pass along what it says is a substantial linehaul company driver pay increase early this month.

FFE linehaul solo company driver pay is set to increase 25% for new drivers, the company said, and the pay increase will see some experienced drivers earning up to 60 cents per mile as base pay.

Linehaul team company driver pay is set to increase by 20%, FFE added.

“Our drivers (were) resilient throughout (2020), dealing with unprecedented challenges in the transportation and shipping industries due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Nick Cook, FFE’s vice president of operations. “As market conditions have changed and the American economy has roared back to life in recent months, we are thrilled to be in the position to increase our linehaul driver pay significantly.

“Truck drivers across the country have been the unsung heroes of 2020, and we are very proud of our drivers at Frozen Food Express. This pay increase, coupled with consistent lanes and predictable home time, further positions FFE as one of the most desirable carriers to drive for in the entire industry.”
