For the second time in 2018, Ag Trucking is pleased to announce a major pay raise for all liquid division drivers. Effective October 1, 2018 all mileage pay rates will increase a nickel. Drivers at top rate will be making 67¢ and new OTR drivers will be hired on at 60¢ per practical mile.
The most recent pay raise comes on top of a nickel raise earlier in 2018, meaning all company tanker drivers have received a 10 per mile raise in 2018. Flat rates for short haul loads and other accessorial pay have also increased this year.
“It’s exciting to announce another significant and well-earned pay raise for Ag’s liquid drivers,” commented operations manager Liza Keenoy. “Experienced drivers will like the pay and benefits package we have to offer.”
New liquid division system drivers start at 60¢ per practical mile. After one year of service with Ag mileage pay jumps to 62¢, after two years 65¢ and after 3 years 67¢! Regional pay package starts at 55¢ per mile.
In addition to industry leading pay rates, Ag offers Anthem Blue Cross health insurance, 401k with match and profit sharing, paid vacations and a customized rewards program.

Ag Trucking recently entered into an agreement with Palmer Trucks Fort Wayne Truck Center to purchase 50 new Kenworth T880 tractors over the next eight months. The new tractors feature Cummins X15 450ST power, disc brakes, KW refrigerators, inverters, TV mounts and Carrier APU’s. The T880 cabs and sleepers have increased headroom and storage space for increased driver comfort.
“We have a driver centric culture, we have the economics, we have the benefits, and now we will have the best equipment in the business for the specific jobs we do,” commented Ag President Tim Boehlke. “For years, word of mouth through current employees has been our best source of new drivers.”
The T880 tractors have a new paint scheme that won a companywide vote by all Ag Trucking employees. The cab and sleeper feature Ag Trucking’s signature cream with the fenders and redesigned stripes painted maroon with metal flake.
The first 2018 T880 tractor was placed in service on September 5th and 15 more scheduled to hit the road over the next 8 weeks. Earlier this year Ag Trucking placed 15 new 2017 T800 KW tractors in service. All together 65 new tractors are entering service a one year period which represents over 40% of the company tractor fleet.
