Barr-Nunn Continues to Raise Driver Pay to Record Heights


Granger, IA, April 23, 2014 – Barr-Nunn Transportation is pleased to announce another set of pay raises to complement the many pay enhancements already instituted earlier this year. The changes raise pay for drivers in every Band Pay region and OTR fleet  along with an increase in pay caps for those already at the top rates. One such change is Ohio Regional drivers now start at $0.44 per practical mile with a pay cap of $0.50 per mile and still get home every weekend.


            In addition to increasing base pay in these fleets, Barr-Nunn is continuing to offer $5,000 sign-on bonuses (for a limited time) to both Team Company Drivers (split) and to Owner Operator Teams. Company Teams with 1 year experience start at $0.53 per Practical mile and move to $0.54 per mile after a year with Barr-Nunn.
