The .12 cpm for CR England. That's for every mile the truck drives, whether you drive or not, correct?


Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

That is correct. You will get a raise each month during your training. Last month, CR England reported they would increase the CPM 12.7% in their phase 2 training.

I left England recently. My experience with them was not the best, I won't get into all the details here, but the best part about the company IMO is decent equipment.

I have a, friend that went to swift right out of school, and in comparing things with him I think I would have had a better experience there.

As for England's pay... .12 cpm for every mile your team truck moves for the first month. You get a .01 cpm raise every 30 days for the first 5 months. After that you join a division and get paid whatever the base is for that division, which is still only about .32 cpm solo or .18 cpm team.

England has A TON of recent cdl grads pulling their freight. After 6 months of being off the trainers truck they will pressure you to become a trainer. That is where you start making the big bucks. My trainer told me he made .42 cpm for all the miles on the truck (we did 5000 a week +/-), .01 cpm for each mile one if his students drove for a year after getting off his truck, and $200 for each off his students that successfully tested out of training on the first try.

You can be a trainer with only 6 mo experience? Kinda scary to be honest.
