Sammons current safety bonus programs

Hello everyone,

After we finished up the
2012 Best Fleets to Drive For, we were fortunate to receive the feedback our contractors

provided to Carriers Edge. Upon reviewing the information, we learned we are doing a lot of things right, but

also realized there are some things we still need to work on.

One concern was in regards to accident-free mileage bonuses and no real rewards for performance or safety.

Since we have quite a few new contractors at Sammons, I thought I would provide a brief description of some of

the reward programs in place at Sammons.

Clean Inspections: Sammons pays you, the contractor, when you receive a clean inspection; and in addition,

your name goes into the “hat” for the $1,000.00 quarterly bonus drawing.

Gross Profit Bonus: Gross profit bonuses are computed and paid based on gross profits generated by

your truck during the twelve-month period that ends with your relicensing month.

Annual Safety Award: After 1 year of service, you qualify for this award by having no preventable accidents,

no moving violations, no out-of-services, no cargo claims over $1,000 and no overdue DOT paperwork.

Safe Operator of the Month: The Safe Operator of the Month is chosen by the Safety Committee. After 1

year of service, you qualify for this award by having qualified for the Annual Safety Award.

If you would like further information on any of the above, please feel free to call me at 406-327-2433.

Have a safe summer, and
thanks for all you do.
