It was announced today that Zimmerman Truck Lines will continue to offer their increased driver sign-on bonus. This bonus was raised in April from $2,500 to $3,750. Chief Financial Officer Derek Ritzman said, “Zimmerman Truck Lines is aggressively seeking qualified drivers to expand our fleet and deliver our customers’ freight. We have positions open right now in both the Flatbed and Van Divisions.”
Minimum starting pay for Vans is $1,025/week. Flatbed drivers are paid by percentage, but are guaranteed $1,000/week if they are available to work five days per week. “Flatbed drivers average $65,000 per year and that equates to about 60 cents per dispatched mile,” Ritzman said. Almost every driver is home weekends as well. Anyone interested in driving for ZTL should call 844-THE-ZTEAM (844-843-9832) or stop by our offices at 190 E Industrial Drive in Mifflintown.
