Bennett has many Driver Friendly Programs we call “A+ Advantages” designed to support and engage our Owner Operators and Contractors.
If you ask Teresa Byes of Springfield, Ohio what she likes about Bennett, she answers very quickly.
“Because they’re the best,” Byes said. “They have an awesome reputation, and we just love the company.”
Byes, who is a driver for Bennett’s DriveAway division, started driving for the company about two and a half years ago when her partner was driving and got Byes interested. At the time they were also driving for another company, but ultimately, they let the other company go and now drive exclusively for Bennett.
Byes said there are times when she rides with her partner and then there are times she drives solo. Since she lives in Springfield, Byes usually starts with driving international trucks out of city, and then she can take whatever lines up with that. And what she drives can be anything from a bobtail tractor, a box truck, a straight truck…“Just about anything,” she said.
Byes said she likes being able to choose where she’s going.
“We have our iPad with us and we can look at the board anytime,” she said. “That way we can line up our loads and plan our trips. That’s probably the most helpful in being able to actually get us going and keep us going. ”
She also said she likes being able to take time off when she needs it without being pressured to take another load.
