ATS: Developing New Drivers Into Skilled Truckers

ATS stands out in the trucking industry because they have demonstrated a unique knack for turning newbie truck drivers into heavy haul experts.

At ATS, company leaders say that they focus on developing drivers from a career standpoint — a driver’s first day of work with the company is considered to be the first day of his or her career. One major part of ATS’s strategy for driver development focuses on fleet managers taking the time to get to know each driver’s individual goals and then developing a career path that helps guide them through the classification system until they are moving their desired type of freight.

Upside Pay Structure Pays Drivers the Best of Both Worlds, Says Company

The company also says they recently launched a new pay program that called Upside Pay. The program pays qualified company flatbed and van drivers cents per mile or a percentage of the load revenue – whichever earns the driver more. Company drivers also get to see a side-by-side comparison of what they would have been paid to verify they’re getting the maximum amount of pay.

ATS is a third generation family-owned transportation company offering a variety of logistics services that has been in business for nearly 65 years. ATS is one of America’s largest for-hire trucking fleets.
