As a 3pl provider, it largely depends on the location and the client contract. While there is a nominal hourly pay rate, you may get a set amount per route, so any raise has to be provided for in the contract with the client.
Set rates mean losing out on OT for any extra work. If you want to go to another job site (different client), your pay doesn't follow you. They discourage this sort of thing.

Great benefits. Started with 3 weeks vacation, 6 sick days. Rental will work more holidays than service, but if you worked the holiday you pretty much got paid double time and a half, or overtime with the option to use a floating holiday in the same week. Offered a great 401k where they match 100% for up to 4% and then 50% up to the max match of 6%. Also some districts offer what they call a cash balance program, where they put a percentage of what you make in a account and you don't put anything. After 5 years, you're fully vested, which means when you leave you can either roll it over to an IRA or any other retirement program, or you can cash out and you'll get a check. Also after 5 years you get a extra week of vacation....4 weeks of vacation after 5 years is pretty good considering most companies give you 1-2 weeks if your lucky, after a year. When you start you immediately start accruing vacation days, generally a day and a half a month. With the right Management/district staff, you'll get cookouts, or pizza parties pretty regularly. They will send you to all types of training if your interested, pay you for mileage and hotels as well as getting paid for the training. The list goes on and on. If you can deal with truck drivers, that "know everything" about how to fix their truck, it is a amazing company to work for. And this is coming from someone who was fired.

As a 3pl provider, benefits depend greatly on the location and the client contract. Health benefits were expensive, so I dropped vision and dental. No FSA or HSA. 401k is with Wells Fargo (!) and is limited to $13000/year, less than allowed by IRS. Can't remember match details, so not going to comment on that.
First year only one week paid vacation.
If benefits are important to you, ask alot of detailed questions.
