Marten Transport Enhances Driver Compensation Package

July 18, 2012

Marten Transport has enhanced its driver compensation package, transitioning from quarterly performance and safety bonuses to monthly bonuses


Under the new tiered monthly performance bonus, drivers can earn $50, $100 or $200 in monthly performance bonus by running anywhere between 9,500 to 10,000 or more miles per month. Teams can earn up to an additional $300 each per month.

With the new monthly safety bonus, drivers can earn an additional $70 per month by operating their tractor trailer safely and participating in a monthly safety video and quiz presented over their Qualcomm unit.

"Our drivers have the real potential to earn an additional $120 to $270 per month in these bonuses," says Tim Norlin, director of recruiting. "That's an extra $3,240 per year or more."

These bonuses complete enhancements to Marten's driver compensation package that includes Marten's Fair Pay mileage scale, where drivers are paid higher rates on lower lengths of haul; automatic detention pay of $20 per hour after two hours waiting to load or unload; $20 per hour trailer maintenance downtime pay; $100 per day layover pay; and $150 holiday pay.
