J.B. Hunt Pay Package Reduces Driver Turnover
October 6, 2000
J.B. Hunt Transport, Lowell, AR, reports that its new driver pay package has benefited the company, its employees and customers.
Implemented in February 1997, the new pay plan raised driver pay-per-mile an average of 33% and offered additional safety, customer service and fuel conservation incentives.
In addition to improved customer service, the plan also resulted in a lower driver turnover — from 100% to 40%. And, as further indication of plan’s success, 1,250 J.B. Hunt drivers earned more than $50,000 in 1997
