We have significantly increased our West Coast Service-Region driver pay for the 2022 Summer Peak Season. The Summer season is our busiest time of every year with higher customer freight demand levels and increased volumes. Peak Season is relatively short and runs through seasonal produce demand each year during Summer month(s).
Our West-Coast 2022 Summer Peak Season freight pricing has allowed an opportunity for us to further increase the West Coast Service-Region driver pay levels for both Solos and Team drivers servicing the West-Coast throughout the 2022 Summer Peak Season.
As a reminder, in 2021 we established the Service-Region Driver Pay program to further share our success with our company drivers, as well as in consideration of loading, reloading activities, length of haul and impacts to home time by each area that we service. Throughout the year as we complete scheduled freight pricing negotiations with our customers, we will continue to evaluate the impacts freight rate adjustments and market conditions have on these programs. We have been very fortunate to be able to maintain these pay programs for our drivers even as the national freight market conditions soften.
We appreciate and value all of our drivers and the exceptional service they provide to our customers!
