From their first days at WTC, each of our drivers receives training in Defensive Driving, Hours of Service (HOS), and Compliance and Cargo Handling Securement. Training occurs year-round, through weekly, fleet-wide safety messages; monthly newsletter articles; quarterly, mandatory, online safety and simulator training; and quarterly safety meetings.
Drivers who meet our stringent safety criteria receive a quarterly safety bonus of up to $300 per quarter.
In addition, we have employed the most modern technology available in terms of in-cab driver safety, including electronic logging, for improved HOS compliance; collision-avoidance systems; rollover-protection systems; lane-departure warning systems; ABS braking; air-disc brakes; GPS tracking technology; and DriveCam, video-surveillance cameras.
All of our tractors have a governed road speed of 65 mph.
