On February 1st, 2021, we launched Accelerator Pay, a "total pay package" that guarantees our drivers a base wage and pays them more per mile the safer and more productive they are, up to $.99 per mile!

PAY:

 

Solo Drivers:

Salary for solo experienced flatbedders (1+ yrs of recent flatbed experience/ can pass flatbed assessment) pays $2,673 per pay period ($5,346 per month; $64,152 annually; based on $.54/mi) PLUS mileage-based accessorials (OD, hazmat, detention), PTO Payout ($1,000), a $.05/mi safety bonus for all miles in incident-free months, PLUS monthly Accelerator Mileage and Accelerator Safety Bonuses for a total of up to $.99/mi!

 

Here's how it breaks down: The first 9,900 miles of the month are included in your salary. After that, each mile over 9,900 has the potential to pay $.54/mi base + $.05/mi safety + $.20/mi Accelerator Mileage Bonus + $.20/mi Accelerator Safety Bonus = $.99/mi!

 

Team Drivers:

Teams are also eligible for the Accelerator Pay Program! Salary for each experienced flatbed team driver (1+ yrs of recent flatbed experience/ can pass flatbed assessment) pays $3,098 per pay period ($6,197 per month; $74,370 per year; based on $.335/mi) PLUS mileage-based accessorials (OD, hazmat, detention), PTO Payout ($1,000), and monthly Accelerator Mileage and Safety Bonuses.

Here’s the breakdown: The first 18,500 miles of the month (to the truck) are included in your salary. After that, each mile over 18,500 has the potential to pay EACH of you $.335/mi base + $.025/mi safety + $.10/mi Accelerator Mileage Bonus + $.10/mi Accelerator Safety Bonus = $.56/mi each!
