INDUSTRY’S TOP PAY
The National Survey of Driver Wages reports that Heartland Express driver pay is $0.13 per mile higher than the average trucking company and $0.06 per mile higher than the next highest paying carrier. Our $0.13 difference in pay will oftentimes leads to more than $15,000 per year in addition income. Mike Gerdin, our President, has been a champion for higher driver pay across the industry and believes that drivers deserve to be paid well for the difficult job that they do.
Our tractor fleet has an average age of 1.78 years—and it’s getting newer all the time. The same goes for our trailers, which have an average age of 4 years. As much as we consider this an investment in our equipment, we’ve found that it’s an even greater investment in our drivers. New equipment leads to fewer breakdowns, which leads to more miles, and ultimately, more income for our drivers and stronger shipper relationships.
GET IT DONE AND GET HOME
In 1992, Heartland Express redesigned its operations around a regional freight strategy. This keeps drivers running all their desired miles, while remaining close to home and close to shippers.
Heartland Express is a zero-debt company. The trucks and trailers we run are paid for in full. Our drivers are secure in knowing that their paychecks will be always be there on time. This financial strength is unmatched in our industry, leading to better driver and shipper relationships throughout the country.
