Minnesota trucking company’s drivers lounge needs to be seen to be believed


Content Sponsored by Bay & Bay Transportation

We’ve all seen our fair share of sad drivers lounges — A couple of uncomfortable plastic chairs. A TV showing soap operas. Bad coffee, if any coffee. A place that makes you feel tolerated, but definitely not welcome.

That’s why we were so impressed when we were recently invited to take a look at the driver’s lounge at Bay & Bay Transportation’s Eagan, Minnesota terminal. You can take a quick video tour of the facilities below.

Upscale Features At Bay & Bay Terminal Enhance Driver Comfort

The Eagan terminal features showers, laundry facilities, workout equipment, and a state-of-the-art drivers lounge.

The Bay & Bay’s drivers lounge features bright and modern design, games, comfortable seating, and appealing snack and drink options. It’s the kind of place where you actually want to hang out and have a chat with your fellow driver. And, most importantly, it’s the kind of place where you feel that you’re welcome and appreciated.

Take a look at some of the photos of the facilities below.

And the Eagan terminal isn’t the only one of Bay & Bay’s recent facility upgrades designed to make drivers more comfortable. The company also debuted a new terminal in Denton, Texas, less than two years ago, and the Burnsville, Minnesota, facility underwent major renovations in the fall of 2018 that included new shower facilities and a drivers lounge makeover.

Company Announces CPM Increase for Company Drivers & Contractors

The updated drivers lounge is just one way that Bay & Bay is showing respect for their most valuable assets — their drivers. The company announced a five cent CPM increase for company drivers earlier this year, bringing the total CPM up to $0.50.

Bay & Bay also recently put a major CPM increase in place for contractors. Starting on July 1, 2019, the company upped their Mileage LP and Owner-Operator pay by up to .20 CPM, bringing total CPM up to as much as $1.50 per mile in addition to Fuel Surcharge.

Bay & Bay is a multi-generational family owned and operated trucking company that has been in business since 1941. Bay & Bay was named for the two bay horses that acted as the transportation company’s original hauling horsepower in 1941. The company believes that every member of their team should be treated equally and with respect — from truck drivers, to mechanics to operations staff. Bay & Bay says that they rely on an experienced operations staff to ensure that each of their drivers is successful, whether they are a company driver or an Owner-Operator. Many of the company’s planners and fleet managers have been with Bay & Bay for more than a decade, offering drivers a rarely-matched resource of knowledge about company operations and freight.
