”2020 brought a new set of challenges never before seen within our industry and never before seen with our own company. Our drivers continued to carry through in the middle of a pandemic when other industries had the luxury of staying home and staying safe.
Our goal at D.M. Bowman is to be a great service provider to our customers, and the only way we can do that is by attracting and retaining the top drivers in our operating areas. We knew that we needed to offer an even more competitive wage to continue to stand above our competitors as an employer of choice.
I am excited to announce that we are implementing the single largest base pay raise that our company has ever given in our 62 years of business. All CDL positions will be seeing a significant cent per mile increase effective March 28th. You deserve it.
Please get with your Driver Manager to go over the details of these increases.
On top of our new pay increase, we will also be overhauling our bonus pay system. Drivers will be able to earn 6 additional cents per mile every week for being successful in the areas of: safety, customer service, and fuel efficiency. It is our goal that the new bonus system will be much simpler to track for new drivers, and easier for experienced drivers to predict if they will achieve the earned bonus each week.
Thank you to every member of our driving team, we truly appreciate all you do to keep this company moving forward. Let’s all continue to work hard together as we carry through.”
