Today Baylor Trucking announced that they will honor the service of their military veteran drivers by increasing their pay.
As part of the company’s Veteran’s Recognition Program, drivers who served in the armed forces will receive a $.01 per mile increase. Local drivers who served will earn an extra $1 per hour. Veterans who are members of the company’s office staff will also receive a 1% pay increase.
Baylor Trucking also honors its veteran drivers by issuing them specially wrapped trucks with patriotic themes and by outfitting their trucks with a star decal to distinguish their branch of service. The company also focuses on providing specialized training for members of the military who have recently come home from deployment.
Cari Baylor, president of Baylor Trucking, notes, “For the sacrifices these brave men and women have made for our country, this program is another way our company can say thank you.”
Baylor Trucking was started by World War II veteran Chester Baylor with a single truck in 1946. Four generations later, Cari Baylor oversees a fleet of 200 trucks.
