Truck Driver Salaries, Retirement Plans, and Other Benefits at Lily


Here at Lily Transportation, we believe that it’s our people that make us unique. When someone becomes a member of our team, they’re not only becoming part of one of the most dedicated carriers in North America; they’re also becoming part of a family.

We’re proud of our employees and are committed to doing anything and everything we can to help them maintain and sharpen their skills behind the wheel. It’s the people we work with who have enabled us to earn a respected position in the industry, and as such, we strive to provide every employee with all the benefits and support they need to thrive day-in and day-out.

Here’s just a small glimpse of the salaries and benefits Lily Transportation offers to its drivers:

Competitive Salaries

Since the trucking industry needs drivers (and lots of them), companies will pay their drivers well and often offer them a variety of bonuses and benefits that can help ensure every one of their employees is content, committed, and well taken care of. This is true across the industry, and it is especially true here at Lily Transportation. Not only do we offer paid holiday and vacation time, but we also provide our safest drivers with safety bonuses to reward their exceptional skills behind the wheel.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average truck driver makes over $40,000 annually, but each carrier will offer a variety of truck driver salaries depending on experience, contracts, and other factors. also says that “The pay does gradually increase year by year, based on performance, safety, and experience.”

The bottom line is that truck driving pays its drivers well, and with competitive pay becoming increasingly common, anyone willing to commit to the role is sure to be well compensated for their talents behind the wheel.

Approaching Retirement

The longer you spend with the same carrier, the higher your truck driver income can become, and the more experience you have behind the wheel, the more companies will want to work with you. Whether they’re recent converts to the trucking lifestyle or lifelong devotees, the trucking industry rewards its drivers for their work on the road.

When it’s time to retire, that reality remains true. With Lily Transportation, for example, drivers aren’t only given benefits like Blue Cross Blue Shield Medical and Dental Insurance, but they’re also provided with a matching 401k retirement plan. This means that, when your time on the open road is coming to an end, you can be confident that you’ll have the resources you’ll need to enjoy your truck driver retirement to its fullest.  

Other Benefits

The perks of a truck driving career don’t stop there, though. When you enter into the professional driving field with Lily Transportation, you can expect to find a wealth of benefits like:

  • Health and wellness programs
  • 24-hour dispatch
  • Safety bonuses
  • Excellently maintained equipment
