Con-way Truckload is boosting its pay and incentives package to attract team drivers to its long-haul operations.

“Our drivers form the foundation of the company, and we’re committed to ensuring that they have modern, safe equipment, a good working environment and excellent, competitive compensation,” said Clay Halla, president of Con-way Truckload. “We are constantly reevaluating and improving our offerings for drivers as we continue to establish ourselves as the premier employer in our industry.”

Con-way is sweetening its compensation structure with:

  • A $3,000 sign-on bonus for new qualified team drivers
  • Payment based on “practical miles”— to account for actual miles driven rather than industry-standard “shortest-route” compensation
  • Annual Incentive Compensation Plan (ICP) offers a company-wide reward of up to 7% of annual pay for eligible drivers if the company meets its financial goals
  • Referral pay for successful recommendations of new and qualified driver teams
  • Increased vacation pay
  • Voluntary “per-diem” pay

Non-monetary improvements include:

  • Increased home time
  • Wellness coaches to assist with smoking cessation, weight, sleep and health issues
  • Electric landing gear to eliminate the need to manually lower dolly legs
  • Installed inverters and in-cab refrigerators
  • XM radio equipment with no activation fee
  • Option to travel with pets

Con-way Truckload, a subsidiary of San Mateo, CA-based Con-way Inc., currently operates more than 1,200 pieces of equipment and employs some 250 driver teams and more than 50 owner-operator teams.
