Sitton Motor Lines Announces New Owner Operator Plan – PICK YOUR PAY!
Sitton Motor Lines has a reputation for treating their owner/operators like family. In terms of compensation, Sitton owner/operators have long received many of the benefits of being an employee while at the same time enjoying the independence and additional earning power associated with ownership. Sitton has taken that philosophy to an entirely new level by introducing ‘Pick Your Pay,’ a unique and revolutionary new pay plan that enables owner/operators to choose between two lucrative compensation packages.
PLAN A: Pay Per Mile + Benefits features a base rate of 79.5 cents per mile plus a weekly adjusted fuel surcharge. This option includes a variety of benefits that the owner/operator enjoys at no cost, such as: license and permits, liability and cargo insurance, worker’s compensation insurance, payroll tax withholding, paid vacation, paid tolls, paid holidays, Prepass, TripPak, a 401K plan, layover pay, stop pay, drop pay, life insurance and more. Health, dental, and vision insurance are available to owner/operators at group rates. The total package is valued at $1.07 per mile plus a weekly adjusted fuel surcharge when all of the benefits are factored in. Most small fleet owners find this pay package most beneficial and most profitable because Sitton handles their driver payroll and benefits at no additional cost to the truck owner or business-savvy owner/operator.
PLAN B: Pay Per Mile plan was recently implemented at a higher base rate per mile but does not feature some of the perks associated with Pay Per Mile + Benefits. However, many benefits are included, at no charge to Sitton owner/operators, in this plan, such as: license and permits, tolls, Prepass, TripPak, layover pay, stop pay, detention pay, fuel taxes, liability and cargo insurance, orientation expenses, orientation pay, physical, and drug screening. Benefits that are either not included in this plan or paid for by the owner/operator include: tires, fuel and maintenance, owner/operator occupational accident insurance, physical damage insurance, non-trucking liability insurance, anti-theft and safety kit, passenger insurance, a 401K plan, health insurance, dental insurance, life insurance, paid holidays and vacations, and escrow accounts. Often times, owner/operators, who have their own authority, prefer this pay package because it simplifies the transition, everything is processed into one check, and they are already accustomed to the expenses.
All Sitton Motor Lines owner/operators must meet the same qualification criteria as Sitton company drivers and must comply with all company safety policies and procedures.
