Strider Transportation Changes the Model of Over-the-Road Trucking

Locally owned and family-focused Strider Transportation is expanding its truck-driving team, offering one of the most competitive pay packages in the trucking industry. With its high compensation rate, guaranteed salary, bonuses and a weekends-at-home policy, Strider outpaces the industry standard.  
“Almost every industry is experiencing a labor shortage, and OTR trucking is no different,” says Greg Miller, owner of Strider Transportation, a company that values family and schedules, routing its drivers to be home every weekend. “It’s essential for business owners to be transparent and honest — not to mention competitive — to entice experienced and committed team members. That’s been our approach since Day One.”
Miller explains that company drivers for Strider earn a guaranteed salary of $70,000 for 30,000 miles per quarter — that’s a guaranteed 59 cents per mile. After 30,000 miles, company drivers are paid an additional six cents per mile, as well as given fuel bonuses, insurance benefits and vacation. Owner operators average over $2 per mile to the truck, taking home 80% of what the load pays and still arrive home for their hours-of-service (HOS) reset.
Strider also sets the bar for experience and safety. Proudly serving the region for over 17 years, the company holds to the highest standards of safety with exceptional ratings from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Strider’s minimum driver requirement is five years of OTR experience, as compared to an industry standard of two years.
“Most of our drivers have over 20 years under their belt, and we encourage the more experienced drivers to mentor the younger ones,” Miller says. “From our drivers and safety manager, to dispatch, accounting and ops, we’ve truly created a family environment.”
