Bennett has many Driver Friendly Programs we call “A+ Advantages” designed to support and engage our Owner Operators and Contractors.
The health and safety of our customers, employees, contractors, drivers, agents and owner operators is our commitment at Bennett since Safety is Priority One. Due to recent concerns over the Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic, we would like you to be aware that Bennett is fully prepared. Our hearts and prayers go out to all who have been affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus and we acknowledge the hardships on families presented by the temporary closures of public gathering places.
As the situation continues to develop, Bennett has been monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak closely and taking the necessary precautions to actively review and update the company’s emergency and business continuity plans in response to the impact from the situation. Bennett currently is following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the state and local health authorities within the markets we serve.
Our trucks will remain on the road as we continue to keep America’s freight rolling. Bennett owner-operators, contractors and dispatchers have been notified that customers are responding to the situation with additional hygiene measures, health screenings and modified freight pick-up and delivery protocols. In addition, independent owner operators showing any symptoms have been advised to not accept any loads.
