Halvor Lines announces per mile pay increase for drivers

Starting Nov. 1, Halvor Lines will pay more per mile to mileage-based drivers at all experience levels. The new pay scale, which applies to loads moved on or after Nov. 1, also allows drivers to reach the top of Halvor’s pay scale faster than before.

The per-mile pay increase recognizes the important role OTR truckers play in keeping America running, particularly in 2020 as drivers kept goods moving during the COVID-19 pandemic and periods of national civil unrest.

“Our drivers’ efforts to keep our country and our business moving throughout this year have not gone unnoticed,” says Halvor Lines CEO Jon Vinje. “We truly value, appreciate, and respect the hard work, professionalism, and partnership our drivers have shown throughout this.” 

The per-mile pay increase for OTR drivers will benefit drivers at all levels of experience – from new CDL graduates looking for training to experienced drivers seeking a new employer. Students enrolled in Halvor’s new CDL training program will also be eligible for the higher pay rates.

“We believe that these adjustments will put us in a strong and competitive position to attract and retain great drivers,” says Halvor Lines President Ryan Fraley.
