Boyd Bros. Transportation is increasing average driver pay to 54 cents per mile and increasing seasonal bonus by 2 cents per mile for company drivers, the company said.

It also is increasing vacation pay and raising the sign-on bonus for experienced flatbed drivers.

“At Boyd Bros., we are constantly looking for ways to pass on the company’s success to our drivers,” said Betty Nix, director of recruiting.

“It is our drivers’ hard work and great customer service that makes us one of the most successful fleets, and we’re excited we can continue to offer them one of the most competitive compensation packages in the industry,” Nix said.

The company also said it will replace more than a third of its fleet with new trucks by the end of the year.
