Covenant Transport (No. 39 on the CCJ Top 250) has announced a new bonus program for team drivers that will give award each driver with a $20,000 bonus.
The $40,000 Teaming Bonus program, which goes into effect Feb. 1, will pay $2,000 in bonus money to teams each time the team runs 60,000 paid miles together. Each driver will receive $1,000, up to a total combined $40,000.
“We have team freight,” said David Parker, founder and CEO of Covenant Transport Services. “That’s important to note, because a lot of carriers bring on team drivers and put them on solo lanes.”
To be eligible for the bonus, new drivers are not required to bring a team partner to Covenant with them. The company’s team matching program will match single drivers with partners, and after orientation, newly-formed teams are eligible to begin earning the bonuses.
