Rates soar in May as flatbed, reefer set records

Rates in all three segments boomed in May, continuing to build on recent per-mile upticks, according to data released June 2 by Internet Truckstop.

Total Transportation of Mississippi has announced a pay increase for its company drivers effective immediately. For experienced solo drivers, a 40-cent-per-mile rate for all miles is now in place, with extras for hazmat. Team drivers will get 46 cents per mile without a hazmat endorsement, 50-cents with it and 51 cents with hazmat and doubles endorsements. 

Recent CDL graduates will start at 34 cents per mile. 

All drivers, the company says, will also receive a one-cent-per-mile increase each year with no pay cap.
