Alabama-based flatbed carrier Boyd Bros. announced an increase in driver pay across the board for company drivers, effective Tuesday, Sept. 5.
All company drivers will receive an additional 4 cents per mile for all loads picked up on and after Tuesday. Additionally, all company drivers, as well as students who graduate from the Boyd Bros. training program will receive a $900 weekly pay guarantee.
“Our drivers make much more than $900 per week,” says 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.”
