A North Dakota carrier goes above and beyond to combat some of the biggest worries that truckers face every day.
A North Dakota-based trucking company is setting themselves apart from other carriers by making sure that their drivers don’t have to stress out about their next meal or their next paycheck.
Mapleton, North Dakota-based Great Plains Transport recently announced that they have expanded a popular driver benefits program to their new GPT heavy haul, stepdeck, and conestoga division.
Fill The Fridge To Save Money, Time, and Worry
There are a lot of things that can go wrong on the road and a lot of legitimate reasons for a driver — especially a new driver — to worry. But company leaders at Great Plains Transport are working to take some of those worries off of their drivers’ plates by making sure that they don’t have fret over food in their first few days out on the road. The company provides new drivers with a sack of groceries full of $50 work of food that they can select online and have delivered to their location. Starting out with the company with a full fridge saves money and time, and can even help drivers to make healthier food choices when they don’t have to rely on truck stop restaurants. It’s a small gesture that makes a big difference and shows drivers that Great Plains Transport has their back.
Weekly Check Plus Mileage Bonuses Are the Best of Both Worlds
Even more importantly, Great Plains Transport provides drivers with a steady salary paid out weekly — even if the driver is hit with an unforeseen problem like a repair or a long detention time at a shipper. Company drivers earn a salary of $65,000 per year paid out weekly, meaning there is no worry about paying bills back home if a driver has a bad week. A regular paycheck gives drivers more peace of mind in financial planning and makes sure that they don’t have to sweat it if they are hit with a setback.
In addition to the weekly paycheck, drivers can also earn mileage-based bonuses of up to $1000 per month which are paid out on a monthly basis, allowing drivers to maximize their earnings. Other driver benefits include medical, dental, and life insurance, paid vacation, and a 401k company match program.
Great Plains Transport’s heavy haul/stepdeck/conestoga division is new, but the family-owned and operated company has been in business since 1977. All you have to do to get started on becoming part of their team is click here!
