October 2020- Amidst one of the most trying and challenging years in recent history, when most American businesses have been forced to shut down, furlough their employees, or institute mandatory pay cuts, Continental Express has taken a very promising turn. Instead of decreasing wages, we have given our over-the-road (OTR) driver employees an aggressive $0.03 cent per mile (cpm) wage increase! This significant wage adjustment, in excess of a 6% increase, results in every new OTR driver joining our team at $0.50cpm base + $0.03cpm bonus earnings, making Continental one of the highest paying organizations in the industry!
As Continental Express continues to deliver superior refrigerated transportation solutions to our external customers, we feel it is equally as important to take outstanding care of our internal customers- our drivers who are out on the road delivering freight safely and timely day in and day out. There is no doubt about it, without our drivers, we would not be the industry-leading organization that we are today. A top priority of ours is to support and promote each of our drivers’ well-being every single day.
The leadership team at CE would like thank all personnel for pulling together during these unprecedented times that have affected us all in one way or another. With this wage increase, we not only want to acknowledge and express appreciation for the dedication and sacrifice our current team has endured, but we are also working hard to attract and retain the best talent in the industry. Our goal is to empower and treat every employee with dignity and respect, so we can best help them reach their fullest potential.
If you are a hard-working and committed driver looking to take your professional driving career to the next level with industry leading pay, exceptional benefits, and a world-class support team, then please give a recruiter a call today for more details! 800-497-2100
