Transportation and Distribution Salary Survey

The Transportation and Distribution Salary Survey reports compensation data for 301 benchmark jobs related to the transportation of passengers and cargo, warehousing, storage and distribution of goods, scenic and sightseeing transportation, and support activities related to modes of transportation, including air, rail, water, and over-the-road.

The Transportation and Distribution Salary Survey documents market-based pay data for 24 executive and 277 non-management salary benchmark jobs from up to three databases: digitized public sources, ERI Assessor Series data, and direct participants. The following information is reported for each job title (salary data are shown in means, medians, and percentile cuts):

  • Annual Salary
  • Incentive/Variable Pay
  • Total Direct Annual Compensation
  • Job Description
  • Selected Characteristics of the Occupation (SCO)

Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires. Each data submission is thoroughly screened by our team of experienced researchers prior to inclusion in a survey. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date. Data collection begins October and ends March. Survey results are published annually in July, with an effective data date of March 31 of the given survey year.
