Driver Bonus and Incentives

You go the extra mile... and so do we.

When Nussbaum does well, our employees do well, too. Higher levels of performance do not go unnoticed…or uncompensated

Performance Bonus Program
  • Become a Gold Level driver! Our scorecard system assigns points in three areas: safety (hours of service, clean MVR & CSA, no accidents, safe driving habits), fuel (efficient driving, low idle, purchasing) and operations (productivity, low OOR miles, customer service/on-time delivery).
  • Performance is assessed using objective information and drivers receive detailed feedback every month based on real-time data. Note: YOU have to EARN the bonus – it’s not a handout!
  • Drive your own results and earn a bigger bonus! You’ll understand the direct connection between your performance and the success of the company, as well as where extra efforts benefit you personally.
  • Average bonus payout is more than $0.02/mile extra.  Top performers get up to $0.04-$0.05 extra per mile (or over $6,000 in additional earnings annually)!!!
  • Have fun and win great prizes! We sweeten the deal with awards and drawings for our best-performing drivers each quarter. Qualify to win iPads, iPods, cash and more!
