Celadon Trucking said this week it has launched the company’s WageLock program, where company drivers who meet the requirements can earn up to $1,000 a week — regardless of how many miles they drive.
Celadon said the qualifications for the pay program are easy to achieve, and the better the driver’s performance with the company, the higher the potential weekly payout.
“The transportation and logistics industry is ever-changing, and we want our hard-working drivers to have peace of mind that they will get paid in times when miles may be hard to come by through no fault of theirs,” said Matt Douglass, vice president of operations at Celadon. “Our WageLock program exists to support our drivers at those times.”
The program supplements drivers’ pay when circumstances outside their control hamper their ability to transport freight. Equipment breakdowns, being routed to remote locations far from heavy freight lanes and driving frequent short-haul loads that offer less mileage than longer trips, can prevent drivers from getting the weekly miles they need. WageLock is designed to address these realities of the trucking industry.
Celadon Group Inc., through its subsidiaries, provides long-haul, regional, local, dedicated, intermodal, temperature controlled, flatbed and expedited freight service across the United States, Canada and Mexico.
