OTR Driver

Last year, the industry took a hit. Miles took a dip and your paycheck felt it. But at Shaffer Trucking, those miles are back and then some. Shaffer has continued to increase miles. In fact, we have been averaging 7% more miles than the industry.* Plus, with the recent pay raise, OTR drivers now start out earning $.49 to $.52 per practical mile and receive a full benefits package. It’s no wonder we have been in business for 80 years.

But we didn’t just stop there. When you work for Shaffer Trucking you also receive benefits beyond the paycheck.
