Alabama-based carrier Boyd Brothers Transportation is now paying drivers a seasonal bonus. All company drivers, as of Aug. 1, received the 2 cents per mile increase, if they are paid per mile.
Drivers will be able to make up to 56 cents per mile. Company drivers who are paid by percentage will receive a 1% increase, the company said.
“We want to offer this seasonal bonus to our drivers because business is going very well for Boyd Bros.,” said Dwight Basset, CFO. “Our drivers are our life blood and while business is strong, we think that they need to participate in the opportunities of stronger freight patterns.”
