OUR DRIVERS & OWNER-OPERATORS
SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
I'm not sure how this company does it but they seem to have it all right. So far I really feel the most important part of the company is that everyone is working to make me as comfortable as possible. The communication is over the top - there are no gate keepers as I call them, blocking you from speaking with the person that could solve your problem. the money is spectacular.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
OTP stands for Outstanding Trucking Professional. Our company drivers often ask us about how they can begin earning even more with GP Transco, and the new OTP Profit-sharing program is the answer.
All truck drivers who begin working at GP Transco are required to have a minimum 1 year of recent and verifiable trucking experience, a good driving record, outstanding professionalism, and a commitment to the job. For that, drivers are paid a competitive rate of 50 cents per mile from the start, which is over $78,000/year with the ability to receive health insurance, 401k with matching, and more. In order for a driver to make even more via OTP Bonus, he or she must maintain the following on a consistent basis:
Attendance & HOS Utilization
If the driver is paid layover pay, breakdown pay, or other accessorial payments, he or she would not receive OTP Profit-sharing for the week. The Driver's OTP status is reviewed and the bonus is paid on a weekly basis, as long as the company driver met the criteria listed above during the previous week and with no layovers, breakdowns, or other exceptions occurred (please speak with our recruiting team for more details). This adds 6 cents per mile to the driver's pay, which can add up to over $9,000 a year, a total of up to $87,000 in annual salary*. Overall, about half of GP Transco drivers get paid for OTP on any given week.
