Per Diem Tax Savings
To help increase your wages and reduce your taxable earnings, we offer a daily $59 Per Diem tax savings. For some drivers, Per Diem provides additional take home earnings equivalent to an extra “four cent” for all miles run. A driver that is single and claiming just one deduction, earning $1,035 for the week, may see a tax savings of over $4,900 for the year or over $94 weekly.

Guaranteed Pay for Experienced FB Driver
We have increased our 4 day orientation pay for an experienced flatbed driver to $650.00. In addition, we will guarantee
you a minimum of $650.00 the first week after truck assignment as transition pay. Hornady considers an experienced
flatbed driver to be someone with at least 6 months of flatbed experience in the last year or 1 year of flatbed
experience in the last 3 years and will be assignable at the end of orientation.

Performance Bonus
The Performance Bonus was implemented to reward our drivers for their exceptional service and performance as a
professional driver. Our System Drivers will receive .01 per loaded mile. This program is based on loaded miles run
during the calendar month and the bonus monies are paid the following month.
