Enjoy Paid Travel & Extensive Vacation Time with Millis Transfer

Results from a Gallup Poll last year indicate that only six out of ten people take vacations. According to the study, those who did not often stayed home due to a lack of vacation time or a lack of income. While some discount the importance of vacation, there are a number of studies that show a little rest and relaxation has both physical and psychological health benefits. As noted by Allina Health, "People who take vacations have lower stress, less risk of heart disease, a better outlook on life, and more motivation to achieve goals."

While vacation time is not always a priority with some trucking companies, drivers at Millis Transfer enjoy up to three weeks of vacation a year.  According to the New York Times, vacations help lessen the risk of coronary heart disease or heart attacks. Vacations also reduce hypertension and bring about a higher sense of well-being. Neuroscientists have even found that vacationing helps to reduce anxiety and depression. 

Harvard Business Review found that "People who took fewer than 10 of their vacation days per year had a 34.6% likelihood of receiving a raise or bonus in a three-year period of time. People who took more than 10 of their vacation days had a 65.4% chance of receiving a raise or bonus." That's healthy incentive to enjoy some rest and relaxation.

With the generous vacation options provided by Millis Transfer, our drivers have the opportunity for improved health, job performance and perspective. While it is a lot of fun to be a paid tourist, it is also important to have and utilize vacation time. That's why Millis Transfer makes a point of offering one of the best vacation packages in the industry. It might be interesting to note that we also offer some of the most competitive pay.
