2014-10-14 Roehl Transport earns recognition for pay increases and innovative pay program

Marshfield, WI – Roehl Transport recently announced wide-ranging pay increases across its 2,200 truck fleet. The increases, implemented during the summer, impact drivers throughout Roehl’s extensive and diverse offerings of fleets including flatbed, van, refrigerated, heavy haul/specialized and dedicated fleets.

Greg Koepel, Roehl’s Vice President of Workforce Development and Administration, commented on the increases, “We’ve been out in front of the industry for quite some time with our Your Choice Pay Plan, and now we’re pleased to have made rate per mile increases as high as 16 percent across our fleets.”

Implemented in 2012, the Your Choice Pay Plan empowers Roehl drivers to earn the highest pay levels based on the driver’s performance, instead of an anniversary only based pay plan. 

 “You don’t have to wait a decade to get to the top rates with Roehl. If you’re a top performer, you’re going to get top pay!” Koepel added.

In September of 2014, Commercial Carrier Journal (CCJ) featured the performance-based Your Choice Pay Plan with their prestigious Innovators recognition. CCJ called Roehl’s bold new plan that advances drivers to ever-higher pay rates based on performance “A better way to pay.” 

Given how hard our folks work, it makes sense to recognize their superior performance now, rather than waiting until some artificial date way out in the future,” Koepel noted. “With the Your Choice Pay Plan, our drivers get credit for their safety, productivity, customer service, cost management and fuel efficiency performance as they go,” he continued. 

Roehl is a Top Pay Carrier as certified by the National Transportation Institute. The recent increases to driver pay coupled with the Your Choice Pay Plan create a powerful combination for providing industry-leading pay. 

Koepel summed up the recognition by saying, “We’re committed to driver success. Our industry leading approaches to safety, pay and hometime bring our beliefs to life. As we enjoy the industry recognition, we remember that what we’re most happy and proud about is that Roehl drivers take home more!”
