The new incentive plan is structured so that drivers are rewarded for their longevity with the company in combination with their performance.

 

   In an effort to demonstrate their appreciation for drivers’ tenure and commitment to their customers, Dupré Logistics has implemented an incentive plan for drivers in its Energy Distribution Services division.
    The newly created incentive plan will pay out about $1 million in bonus compensation to all drivers for the first eligible period.
    “We wanted our drivers to know that they are our most valuable asset and we are committed to maintaining the ‘ideal place to work’ for them,” said Tony Becnel, director of Operations Energy Distribution Services at Dupré Logistics (pictured above left with driver Damien McSween). “Our goal is to continually recruit and retain the best drivers within the industry.”
    Headquartered in Lafayette, La., Dupré Logistics is a privately held, asset-based provider of transportation and logistics services that include energy and chemical transport, dedicated truck transportation, site logistics and freight brokerage.

   The incentive plan is structured so that drivers are rewarded for their longevity with the company in combination with their performance. The checks are being distributed over the next several weeks at driver meetings.
    Dupré Logistics Vice President Doug Roberie said, “Many companies have bonus programs that are dispersed yearly and have a low percentage at paying out. We feel that Dupré’s new bonus structure is unique to the industry in that it was designed to be awarded more frequently and to reward 99 percent of Dupré drivers with added compensation in addition to our current driver wage increases.”
    Roberie added, “We wanted to put a check in our drivers’ hands to show our appreciation for their commitment to Dupré and our customers.”

However, if shipping alliances are outlawed altogether, then freight rates will skyrocket because alliances are the only way that carriers can operate ultra-large container ships (ULCVs) effectively.

The FBX, a global container freight index measuring spot rates on major global trades, had an overall reading of $1,342 per FEU as of June 14, down 1.5% from a week prior, but up 3.4% from a year prior.
