P&D drivers got a .90 raise which brings the top pay to $31.53 per hour.

Dock workers got a .75 raise which brings their top pay to $28.10 per hour.

As if they weren't overpaid enough, Linehaul received 1.9cpm which brings their top pay somewhere between .74 to .75cpm.

Please note it takes 3 years of service to reach top pay.

Last year it was announced that we will get Christmas Eve off and paid for. This year it was just announced that we will be getting the day after Thanksgiving off and paid for.

P&D:

Pickup & Delivery

Local drivers that stay around their area, usually within 100 mile radius of a terminal, picking up and delivering loads.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers for instance will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.

Linehaul:

Linehaul drivers will normally run loads from terminal to terminal for LTL (Less than Truckload) companies.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning them to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

Honestly I was expecting to get nothing and hoping for 1 cpm really surprised we are getting the full 1.9 cpm. Plus the extra paid holiday is great.

Plus they "overpay" linehaul because they know we do all the hard work.

OD doesnt pay overtime from what I've heard, Atleast for drivers so all time is paid at that hourly rate. If you worked the same amount of hours you'd earn a larger paycheck due to OT pay. Of course your body is taking a beating compared to the P&D driver bumping docks and occasionally unloading a pallet with a hand Jack. From what I've noticed is OD is most people wanting to get into LTL work want to work at OD. I'm not sure how they differ from other options but by offering such a strong pay rate they're able to recruit the best of the best. Sysco offers so much in part because of the union but they also know if they don't pay that well they won't have anybody working there lol.

LTL:

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier

Maybe the rest of the week but not today lol. 14 different deliveries and 10 different pickups but I did have to refuse one pickup due to poor packaging. We are slammed right now on both city and linehaul

We get OT after 12 in a day or after 60 in a week

I was at an ODFL terminal in Tucson, AZ today to drop an empty. Talking with an office guy there he said he was happily surprised. He said he is on salary and got a bump to. He said ODFL is an awesome company. He said they have great retirement benefits as well.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
