CLAYTON, Ala. — Boyd Bros. Transportation has made history by announcing an industry-high $14,000 sign-on bonus for experienced flatbed CDL-A holders who join the carrier as company drivers before year-end.

Owner-operators and lease/purchase drivers are eligible for a $10,000 sign-on bonus.

Experienced flatbed drivers (those with a minimum of six months experience hauling coils) who have a stable work history, stellar safety record and strong work ethic, are well worth the investment, according to Chris Cooper, president of Boyd Companies and CEO of Boyd Bros. Transportation.

The company’s shippers are growing at a fast pace and are demanding access to more Boyd Bros. driving professionals, he said. 

“Boyd is founded on professionalism and providing industry,” Cooper said. “We believe that if we offer top pay, treat our drivers with respect, and maximize utilization, we can attract and keep the best flatbed drivers.”

Offered through December 31, this sign-on bonus is a combination of a $10,000 quick pay out with a long-term $4,000 stock grant for company drivers that will invest in the driver’s future. 

Qualified flatbed drivers will be paid a portion on the check that includes their first dispatch. The remaining bonus will be paid quarterly in six equal payments. Owner-operators and lease/purchase drivers may take advantage of the $10,000 sign-on bonus without the stock grant.

Career opportunities open at Boyd Bros. include those for company drivers, owner operators, truck driving school students and graduates on over-the-road and regional runs that offer a right mix of steady miles and home time.
