Other Things You Want to Know About the 2021 DTI Pay Increases
Similar to other transportation companies, the pay structure at DTI can be complicated. But, unlike other carriers, we pay you for every part of the job. Overall, DTI’s pay changes in 2021 resulted in an average $2,500 salary increase for our drivers—with our mileage increase contributing to about 50 percent of that average salary increase.
This means that, even after one of the most challenging years in our industry’s history, we were able to increase our professional driver pay, on average, by 3 percent. This is on top of the 3 percent profit-sharing bonus all Dot employees will receive in their 401(k) retirement accounts in March 2021.
Dot always strives to get you the miles you need, but we also understand the importance of supplemental benefits. Drive for Dot and you’ll find the miles, the pay, the benefits, and the respect you’ve been looking for.
