Clayton, AL-based Boyd Bros. Transportation is issuing a two-cent-per-mile pay increase with a one-thousand dollar weekly minimum pay to its drivers, effective February 27, 2018.
Along with the pay increase, Boyd is launching a new sign-on bonus geared for an immediate pay out. Candidates hired by Boyd will receive five-hundred dollars upon delivery of first load, and an additional six-cents-per-mile for the following eighteen months.
“We are committed to creating a better OTR driving job and pay is a key factor,” Boyd president and CEO, Chris Cooper explained. “This across the board increase and weekly minimum not only attracts new candidates to Boyd, but shows how we value our current drivers in a very tangible way.”
“Our sign-on bonus pay out is aggressive for a reason,” states COO, Dwight Bassett. “A line in our mission statement reads ‘we do what we say we will do.’ We take that very seriously. By paying the bonus with each mile driven, new drivers at Boyd know that they will receive their bonus. It’s not a gimmick.” Bassett continues, “The bonus should accumulate to around $10,000 with experienced flatbed drivers starting at 57-cents-per-mile plus a monthly productivity bonus.”
