Truckload carrier Barr-Nunn Transportation has announced the launch of a new pay programme for eligible truck drivers in the US.

The new pay option called North Team Shift + Load Pay with weekend home time is for established team drivers who are living in the Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Chicago, Illinois areas.

Barr-Nunn Transportation truck drivers operating along the I-80 and I-70 corridors with no deliveries to New York City or Long Island can avail the North Team Shift + Load Pay option.

Barr-Nunn Transportation Recruiting director Jeff Blank said: “We know drivers place a very high value on three things, with one being able to plan on a consistent paycheck every week, two is having access to a solid paycheck each week and finally, quality home time each week.

“The North Team Shift + Load Pay programme is rare in the transportation industry, in that it offers the most highly qualified drivers all three.

“I encourage interested drivers to apply as soon as possible as we expect the limited North Team Shift + Load Pay openings to fill quickly.”

Drivers who are eligible for the programme will work Monday through Friday and also receive regular weekend home time.

All Barr-Nunn Transportation truck drivers can earn CSA Safety Bonuses every 90 days.

Paid Time Off (PTO), Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Insurance, a superior matching 401(k) programme, and paid life insurance are the employment packages that are available for the drivers.

Benefits available to the truck drivers include 100% no-touch freight and late-model well-equipped tractors.
