How do we show drivers we appreciate them at System Transport? We offer a great career path within our organization so you can grow, we give safety bonuses and recognize safety achievements with our badge system, we significantly increased our pay packages for all Regional and OTR routes, we provide emergency support to all our drivers and so much more! We love our drivers and appreciate you all. Flatbedders make it happen, and System Transport knows that.
Career Path for our Flatbed Truck Drivers
Driver Appreciation means providing a career path for our drivers so that we can keep you in our family. Let’s face it – we don’t want to lose you! That’s why System Transport offers driving opportunities to haul Flatbed, Specialized, or Heavy-Haul – we truly have them all! You can drive alone or as a team. Get challenged, build, and improve your skills with complex loads for Specialized Fleets or choose dedicated routes with more home time. Or perhaps you are ready to share your expertise with the next generation? System Transport offers well-paid opportunities to become a driver trainer and help new drivers learn the ropes! Whatever your ambition, we will help you get there at System Transport. We help our drivers grow by offering a solid career path.
Another way we show our appreciation to flatbed drivers is by offering quarterly Safety Bonuses. System Transport pays out Safety Bonuses to every driver every single quarter. In addition to your regular pay, if you drive safely on the road you can expect some extra money in your pocket every 90 days from System Transport. Guaranteed.
We take safety seriously at System Transport – the safety of our drivers, their trucks, their freight and those on the road around them. To honor our drivers, we offer a badge program to recognize drivers’ safety on the road – based on miles with current division without preventable or DOT reportable incidents.

Million Mile Drivers Program
Every year during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week we host our annual million mile awards ceremony – honoring drivers who’ve hit 1 million safe miles over the last year. A million miles is far enough to get to the moon and back twice, with enough miles still leftover to circle the earth nearly two times. The average commercial driver achieves this milestone in approximately 10 years. By contrast, the average non-commercial driver puts in almost 13,500 miles per year according to the US Department of Transportation – reaching one million miles in 74 years. And when you consider that every non-commercial driver will experience 3-4 accidents in their lifetime, to achieve 1 million safe miles is truly an amazing accomplishment for our System Transport flatbed drivers!
This year we have 5 outstanding drivers being awarded –
- Alicia Amsbury
- Daniel Saavedra
- Carmon Golladay
- Scott Champion
- Tyler Olson
They’ll be in good company – historically we have had 180 drivers hit the 1 million milestone, 14 drivers hit 2 million miles; and 4 drivers hit 3 million miles!
System Transport will be honoring these drivers with the following;
- $2,500.00 bonus
- ATA Million Mile Package – Plaque, patch, pin, belt buckle
- Custom embroidered jacket
- $100.00 Visa gift card
- Million Mile Safe Driver Decal for the truck (bragging rights!)
- Plaque on our wall of fame at headquarters
We love our drivers, and we appreciate their outstanding contributions to System Transport!
