About K&B Transportation
New Pay Package For Dedicated Drivers!
K&B Transportation is raising pay for our salaried dedicated drivers effective 5/6/18. Dedicated drivers at K&B Transportation are paid a fixed daily salary for every day on the road. This essentially takes miles out of the equation, instead pays drivers a fixed daily rate for every day on the road. When miles are taken into account, drivers on this fleet earn the equivalent of 55-60 cents per mile.
Seniority Level regarding date of hire with K&B:
Current Rate New Rate of Pay
0 to 6 Months $181.81/day $198.00/day
6 Mos to One Yr $186.36 per day $208.00 Per day
One yr plus $200.00 per day $216.00 per day
A salaried driver on this fleet taking the maximum hometime this position allows can earn over $63,000 their first year just on salary pay alone. Drivers also receive $1000 annually, clean inspection bonuses and much more! These salaried positions are ideal for both the driver wanting the maximum hometime this fleet allows as well as road warriors that stay on the road for extended periods of time. This pay package is quite simple, the longer a drivers on the road, the more that driver earns regardless of miles. With this new pay package salary pay for a new hire is up to $1386 with 1 year plus drivers earning up to $1512 per week. To bridge the gap between the current pay package and the new pay package, all April hires will be paid a $400 bonus on their 5/18/18 paycheck, essentially giving them the raise in advance.
Openings for this fleet are typically in Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. Find out more about these positions by calling (800) 851-8651

New hires starting prior to this increase will start at 45 cents per mile and receive a automatic raise to 50 cents per mile on May 6th. Remaining is K&B Transportation’s 2500 mile guarantee. While other carriers may say their drivers run 2500 miles in a week, K&B Transportation truly guarantees our drivers 2500 miles per week. With our new pay package this will guarantee new employees $1250 per week minimum. To bring the transition between our current starting pay of 45 cents per mile and our new pay package K&B Transportation is also offering all April hires a $400 bonus paid on 5/18/18, the same check that drivers will see this increased the increased mileage pay. This bonus is roughly equivalent to starting at 50 CPM from day 1.

Communication, respect, you are a driver not a number, and I mean I have only driven for one other major company but compared to the other company k&b has shown that they know what they are doing, they have organization, and they don't over work you to the point of being burnt out. And what they say you get is what you really get, not just an empty promise. I enjoy working for this company and I am happy to be a driver for them as they have not steered me wrong or disrespected me.

Equipment is good and well maintained. Instant response on all repairs. Truck are a bit under powered and limited to 65 mph. Pay: Guaranteed pay of 2500 miles/week. Start at 45 cpm with 6 months experience, higher if more experienced. Salary positions on dedicated account are equal to over 60 cpm or up to $28/ hr. (depends on experience and where you live) Home time is average for OTR - 2 days/ 2 week. Dedicated home time is very regular and about 3 days off after 11-12 out. Miles: OTR averages 2500 (minimum pay is 2500 miles/week). If you are a "go getter" you can get a lot more. Dedicated is about 1900 miles/week - a good deal for the salary. Type of freight: all reefer, mostly Tyson Culture: somewhat regressive dispatch culture. You must know how to deal assertively and professionally with problem dispatchers. Using the chain of command can be very effective in solving problems.

Good equipment with fast maintenance response. Home time is regular (11-12 days out) and one is always welcome to stay out as long as desired. Pay is competitive for the OTR (46-50 cpm) and more than competitive for dedicated. Minimum pay of 2500 miles/week for the OTR and $185-200/ day for dedicated. About 2000 miles/ week for dedicated (less is better) and anywhere from 2000-3000/week for OTR (depends largely on driver). All reefers, all company drivers.

I have been with K&B Transportation since 2006. I stay due to outstanding compensation, excellent hometime, late model equipment and of course the people.
