Guest: Leah Shaver, president and CEO, National Transportation Institute

Traditionally, many trucking fleets pay their drivers by the mile, especially in the truckload sector. And while these pay rates have increased overall, especially the past couple of years, they still create a pain point for many behind the wheel. But that’s starting to change.

Listen to this episode of the “Eyes on the Road” trucking podcast as we discuss different ways trucking fleets are offering alternatives to pay per mile. Leah Shaver tracks driver pay trends at The National Transportation Institute. She discusses why an increasing number of drivers want more than just pay per mile and the growing use of alternative pay programs. Shaver also talks about why these different pay packages are becoming more common and why carriers should think about evolving beyond a pay-per-mile model.
