Enjoy the Best Benefits in the Industry

Royal Connec Freight drivers enjoy one of the best benefits packages in the industry—hands down. How does 100% of medical, dental, vision and life insurance paid by the Company for you and your family sound?  That’s hard to find these days, and that’s just the beginning of a long list of benefits we’re proud to offer our drivers.

When so many companies are cutting back on benefits, YRC Freight continues to put your health and well-being at the top of our Company priority list. Our drivers work hard and deserve important benefits they can count on.

The benefits package is flexible and gives you many choices to meet your needs and your family’s needs—from the basic day-to-day to the life-changing events that come along. We understand that everyone’s situation is different, so our benefits don’t come in a one-size-fits-all package.

Comprehensive Benefits Focus on You so You Can Focus on Your Work

As a Company, we value the health and well-being of our drivers. It’s what matters most because if you’re worried about other things, you can’t focus on your work. YRC Freight’s benefits packages are the envy of the LTL freight trucking industry, offering competitive coverage in the following areas:

Competitive Pay

Whether you’re on the road or within the city limits, you’ll earn competitive pay based on industry standards. Other companies refuse to pay drivers for time when their loads are delayed or equipment breaks down. Not YRC Freight. If you’re delayed or broken down, we pay you for that time. On top of fair, competitive pay, you can count on:

  • Competitive wages with annual increases based on union contract
  • Weekly pay via direct deposit
    • Up to $0.59 per mile for road drivers
    • Up to $23.75 per hour for P&D drivers
    • Retirement Plans
    • Paid overtime
    • Paid delay time
    • Jury duty pay
    • Bereavement pay
    • Worker’s Compensation pay
    • Paid sick and/or personal days
    • Paid holidays
    • Paid vacations

100% Company-Paid Health Benefits

With all the hoopla about medical coverage today, it’s a load off of our drivers’ shoulders to know they, and their families, are well insured. YRC Freight pays 100% of the following health insurance:

  • Medical care coverage
  • Dental care coverage
  • Vision care coverage

Drivers are eligible to participate in:

  • Retail prescription drugs plan
  • Mail order (90-day supply) prescription plan

Welfare Benefits for a More Secure Future

What happens if you become disabled? Do you have enough money for retirement? What happens to your family if the unimaginable happens? Although we can’t prevent unfortunate circumstances, we can help you be prepared for them. Our drivers are covered for the future with:

  • Basic and accidental death and dismemberment life insurance
  • Short-term disability
