MEMPHIS, Tenn. —  BTC has recently raised starting pay to 55 cents per mile for flatbed drivers with two years recent experience.

In addition, the carrier’s seniority program allows drivers to boost pay to 60 cents per mile.

“The earning potential at BTC is just one of the great reasons for professional drivers to join us,” said BTC Director of Human Resources Jerry Gowen. “Not only are we paying up to 55 cents per mile starting pay, we have generous sign-on, performance and referral bonus programs. It really makes a big difference.”

Drivers at all experience levels benefit from BTC’s raise — from those with as little as three months’ experience (a 2 cents-per-mile raise) to those with two years or more (a 5-cents-per-mile raise).

For orientation, BTC pays $1,000 and first-week solo drivers get another $1,000 the second week.

Also for orientation, BTC provides drivers with meals and a rental car in specific locations and BTC is offering single room options for orientation.

“Our company has high expectations for its drivers and provides numerous opportunities for above average wage earning, an exceptional amount of home time and the latest equipment in the trucking industry,” Gowen said.
