These Boyd Bros. Transportation drivers think that they are sitting down to help film a promotional video — only to be surprised with a four cent per mile pay increase for company drivers across the board!

Boyd Bros. Transportation Announces 4 CPM Pay Increase for Company Drivers

The Clayton, Alabama-based flatbed carrier has some other (awesome) tricks up their sleeves in order to attract and retain drivers. Boyd Bros. Transportation has recently announced a 4 cent per mile pay increase for company drivers that went into effect September 5, 2017. The new pay package will also include a $900 weekly pay guarantee for the fleet.

The 4 cents per mile increase is available to company drivers across the board, and will apply to all loads picked up on and after September 5, 2017.  “I feel like I won the lottery,” said seventeen-year Boyd Bros. veteran driver, Ricco Ponce-Antonetty.  “Boyd has been good to my family.  I wouldn’t work for any other company.”

Additionally, all company drivers are eligible for the $900 weekly guaranteed pay. The weekly guaranteed pay is offered to students who graduate from the Boyd Bros. training program, as well as all current company drivers. “Our drivers make much more than $900 per week,” stated Boyd Bros. CFO, Dwight Bassett.  “We just wanted to take away financial concerns so that drivers can focus on what they do best, drive.  We are also, eliminating the perceived risk that typically accompanies the start of a job with a new company.”

“Boyd is pleased to offer such an exciting and progressive pay package to our drivers. We see this as an opportunity to reward them for all they have done to support and grow our company,” says Boyd Bros. CEO and president, Chris Cooper.  “This pay increase coupled with our $4,000 stock grant expresses how we value our drivers.  They get up every morning, deal with road congestion, shipper delays, regulations, and still deliver the nation’s goods safely and in a timely manner.  They deserve this increase.”

The new pay increase has been put in place by Boyd Bros. to reward drivers and provide a solution to their growing financial needs. In addition to retaining current and valued drivers, Boyd also expects that the new pay package will attract better-qualified candidates to join their growing fleet.
