Groendyke Announces Phase 2 of Driver Pay Increases


ENID, Okla. (July 1, 2021) — Groendyke Transport has increased pay rates for several of its drivers as Phase 2 of a larger driver pay initiative.

This phase affects Groendyke drivers hauling refined and bio fuels, aviation gas and jet fuel, and asphalt, increasing their pay an average of 6 percent overall. It represents a $1.32 million investment. Coupled with Phase 1, which significantly raised pay for the tank truck carrier’s chemical and liquid petroleum gas drivers, Groendyke has now invested about $3.5 million in driver pay increases in 2021.

“We are excited to make these pay changes for our professional drivers,” said Groendyke President and CEO Greg Hodgen. “It is our aim to give our drivers the best overall combination of pay, benefits, equipment, and employment in the tank truck industry.”

Groendyke Transport is one of the largest tank truck carriers in the nation and the only eight-time winner of National Tank Truck Carriers North American Safety Champion Award for the best overall safety program and record in the nation. Groendyke services 49 states, Canada and Mexico from its 40 terminal locations in 15 states.

Even as the driver shortage worsens and demand increases, Groendyke Transport continues to take a measured, data-driven approach to driver compensation to ensure its drivers can count on industry-leading pay regardless of market fluctuations.

“Our long-term approach has proven itself over and over again,” Hodgen said. “We are excited about our future in the tank truck industry and appreciative of the hard work our drivers do keeping America’s economy moving.”

Details on a third phase of driver pay changes will be released in the coming months.
