The recognized gold standard for professional driver and technician compensation data

North America’s top motor carriers, dedicated fleets and 3PLs, and private trucking fleets rely on NTI’s data, surveys, and wage benchmarking reports to build compensation and benefits programs that underpin recruiting and retention success.

NTI’s research empowers fleets to take an analytical, data-based approach to building compensation plans to achieve their hiring goals, monitor real-time changes to driver pay, and to engage with their workforce, leadership teams, and customers to remain competitive in changing market cycles.  

Executives, recruiting and HR managers, compensation analysts, and operations and sales teams have access to benchmarking tools for nearly 200 attributes of driver pay programs, along with Power BI-driven graphs and visuals to easily compare wages, benefits, bonuses, incentives, and the dozens of other components that make up driver and technician comp plans. Compare your pay to select competitors and the market at large to gain an in-depth understanding of where your pay ranks, how you can make adjustments to grow in the markets you operate, and to understand how economic trends are affecting driver wage momentum.
