Covenant also reports that in May of 2018, $368,000 was paid out to 184 driving teams at the company who surpassed 60,000 paid miles together, with each driver in the team receiving a $1,000 bonus.

Joey Hogan, President at Covenant Transport Services reports that the success of the program in the month of May alone has proven the effectiveness of offering such a program to team drivers.

“We knew for months May was going to be a breakout month,” said Joey Hogan, president. “We just didn’t know exactly how big it would be.”

Hogan reports that the success of the $40,000 Teaming Bonus has caused enthusiasm at the company, as it allows Covenant to recognize team drivers.

“It’s been exciting for us to be able to reward drivers who are committed to teaming,” Hogan said.

According to Covenant, the $40,000 Teaming Bonus serves as the beginning of the more bonuses to come for team drivers at the company.

Vice President of recruiting, Rob Hatchett, reports that payouts for teams at Covenant will continue to occur,

“Of course the great news is this isn’t a one-time payout,” Hatchett said. “The way we structured the teaming bonus, these 368 team drivers will hit the payout again in another three to four months.”

“It’s going to be a continual celebration around here,” said Hatchett.
