A new ranking of truck driver salaries was just published — and an Illinois-based carrier made a surprisingly high appearance on the list.

The average annual salary for GP Transco drivers is $84,000 — well above the national average driver salary of $66,711. And the company says that with their OTP (Outstanding Trucking Professionals) weekly driver performance bonus program, company drivers can now earn up to $87,000 per year. Drivers can even calculate their expected salary on GP Transco’s drivers webpage.

The fast-growing carrier already appeared on the “Top 10 Best Trucking Companies to Work For” list earlier this year, coming in at #5 in March of 2019.
