Practical Miles Practical Miles
Applies to Solo Truck Drivers, Team Truck Drivers, and Owner Operators

Practical mileage pay more accurately reflects your paid miles to actual trip miles. The miles you get paid are closer to your trip miles than "shortest" or "House Hold Goods" miles paid by most carriers. This pay system helps you to earn more money. Practical mileage pay allows you to earn safety pay increases even faster.


Here is a sample truck driving week that shows how practical mileage could impact your earnings

Employee Paid Time Off Employee Paid Time Off
Applies to Solo Truck Driver and Team Truck Driver Employees

At Barr-Nunn, we know having Paid Time Off (PTO) is important to all of us. It allows us to enjoy time with our friends and family, and take time away from our important work to recharge and unwind. We have different PTO plans based on the type of job being performed. Solo Company Truck Drivers paid by the mile earn PTO every 60,000 paid miles driven. Team Company Truck Drivers paid by the mile each earn PTO every 109,000 paid miles driven. The more miles driven, the more PTO you can earn. In addition, truck drivers who qualify for the CSA Bonus every 90 days also earn additional PTO.

Truck Drivers who choose positions paid by the shift earn PTO annually on their anniversary.


Here is an example chart of PTO that can be earned for a mileage-paid Solo Truck Driver.

Band Pay Band Pay
Applies to Solo Truck Drivers when paid by the mile

Times have been changing in the trucking industry. The industry average loaded length of haul has been declining for years. When we noticed this trend many years ago, we decided to pay our solo mileage-paid truck drivers more per mile on any load that was 550 miles or less. The extra amount varies based on the length of haul, with shorter loads paying higher amounts. We call it Band Pay. Band Pay is additional compensation added on top of our industry-leading base pay rates. It is paid on loaded miles on loads that you both pick up and deliver. This is one of the many reasons our truck drivers' weekly earnings are so high.

Mileage $/Mile
0-50 $0.97 + $16.50 Flat
51-100 $0.97
101-200 Base Rate + $0.11
201-300 Base Rate + $0.07
301-400 Base Rate + $0.04
401-550 Base Rate + $0.02
*Loaded Miles Only, non-relayed loads
