The Fikes Family of Companies announced an increase in compensation to owner-operators who bring their own trucks, trailers and tags to a contract. Both Fikes Truck Line and FTL Custom Commodities are now paying 80 percent of gross revenue to contractors who qualify. For current contractors this is an increase of between 2 percent and 5 percent.

“We want to reward contractors who are self-reliant and provide an incentive to others to become more independent,” said Jim Honea, vice president of operations.
