Melton Truck Lines, Inc. Offers Training to Drivers with Limited Class A Experience

August 1, 2012

Melton Truck Lines, a premier air-ride flatbed carrier based in Tulsa, OK, is pleased to announce a new Melton Refresher Training program geared to drivers with a Class CDL A with limited, local tractor/trailer, or older experience.  We will pay 34-41 cpm based on verifiable experience which means that drivers should average $50,000 per year!

At Melton, we conduct regular industry pay studies and subscribe to independent annual surveys.  We find that we are consistently positioned in the top 5% in total compensation among North American for-hire trucking companies.  We measure ourselves in every category – mileage pay, tarp pay, productivity, fuel bonus, extra pay for Hazmat and Canada loads, and the premiums drivers pay for insurance coverage.  We recently increased our drivers pay 1 cpm across the board, implemented a CSA Bonus, and started a Road Recruiter Program to offer additional financial incentives.

Top pay is important, but other compelling reasons to drive for Melton include our CSA- Friendly Equipment and the Health Resources. Our fleet of newer Kenworth tractors and well-maintained trailers keep our drivers on the road making money!  In addition, Melton has inexpensive insurance premiums, gyms, onsite Nurse and personal trainer, and free clinics to help drivers avoid unnecessary medical expenses.

When asked what makes Melton special, July 2012 Melton Rookie of the Month Chad Bailey replied, “I love the way drivers are treated here. This is the best company I’ve ever worked for.”   Call Melton at 800-635-8669 to find out if we are right for you and your family.
