“We have implemented a variety of new driver pay initiatives to include enhanced detention and layover pay as well as new weekly and daily pay incentive programs during the past year,” Aaron said. “As an organization, we are committed to excellent compensation, state-of-the-art equipment, and new opportunities that create a greater work-life balance for our drivers.”
