Boyd, Interstate raising pay

| August 28, 2014

Boyd Bros. Transportation (No. 92 in the CCJ Top 250) and Interstate Distributor (No. 72 in the CCJ Top 250) both announced Aug. 28 they would be implementing pay raises for their drivers.

Boyd, the Clayton, Ala.-based flatbed fleet, said its pay raise will bring its average driver pay to 54 cents a mile. It also announced a 2-cents-per-mile seasonal bonus for company drivers and a 4-cent-per-mile bonus for lease-purchase drivers.

Boyd says it also recently increased its vacation pay, upped its sign-on bonus and implemented its new Five Star MPG bonus program.

Interstate’s pay boost comes in the form of a bonus that could add up to 6 cents per mile to existing pay package for team drivers, the company says.

The team bonus starts at 18,000 miles for team operations. The carrier says 65 percent of its eligible drivers hit the bonus in July 2014.
