Roehl Transport reports it paid drivers $4 million in safety incentives in 2022. Instead of having to wait to receive a quarterly or annual bonus, Roehl drivers earn additional cents per mile for each accident-free mile they drive, as they drive them.
CEO Rick Roehl said safety is Roehl Transport’s cornerstone value, and the company rewards drivers for their professionalism as they drive.
“At Roehl, safety is synonymous with professionalism,” he said.
Roehl drivers earn accident-free pay when they do not have preventable accidents and complete all assigned training. Nearly 92% of Roehl drivers who were eligible for accident-free pay earned it in 2022.
In addition to accident-free pay, Roehl drivers received a new pay package in 2022. Roehl’s sliding mileage pay scale rewards drivers for their time, especially when compared with traditional (flat) cents-per-mile plans, according to a statement from the company.
Based in Marshfield, Wisconsin, Roehl employs some 2,441 drivers.
