Love’s awards Gemini drivers $2.3 million in safety bonuses
Bonus shows commitment to keeping roads safe
OKLAHOMA CITY, Mar. 2, 2023 – Love's Travel Stops recently awarded 140 Gemini Motor Transport drivers more than $2.3 million in bonuses for their commitment to safety last year. Gemini, a member of the Love's Family of Companies, operates a fleet of more than 1,600 drivers who transport fuel to Love's Travel Stops across the country.
"The safety of our drivers and those on the roadways around us is our top priority, and rewarding drivers for maintaining Gemini’s high standard of safety is exciting to see,” said Jeremy Gravely, director of Gemini. “The Safe Drivers Program is an investment that’s unmatched in the industry, and one that’s crucial to the success of Gemini and Love’s Travel Stops.”
Bonuses are based on safety credits awarded to drivers on an annual basis. To earn one credit, drivers must remain accident- and ticket-free and have no fuel-related incidents over the course of one year. Drivers must also pass all U.S. Department of Transportation and Gemini inspections and adhere to Gemini's stringent safety policies. Once drivers collect five safety credits, they're eligible to receive the bonus.
Bonuses are given on a five and 10-year basis. This year, 96 recipients received a five-year bonus, and 44 recipients received a 10-year bonus. Gemini drivers have been paid more than $24 million in safety bonuses through the safety credit program.
Last month, Love’s announced that Gemini is continuing its commitment to safety in 2023 by adding 325 new trucks and replacing 250 older-mileage trucks. If you’re interested in joining the company, visit jobs.loves.com.
