What must a driver do to be eligible to earn fuel bonus?

  1. The driver must be a full time driver. Casual drivers do not qualify.
  2. The driver must have driven more than 5k miles in the quarter.
  3. The driver must have been employed the entire quarter.
    1. Exception: If a newly hired driver drives over 20k miles in a quarter, he/she is eligible to earn a fuel bonus.

Qualifying for a fuel bonus:

To be paid a fuel bonus, any eligible driver must meet the MPG requirements for his/her terminal and truck model/type.

MPG requirements can be determined using the following information.

To provide a quick and easy view of the target levels for each terminal, we have deployed a page on the portal which will share this information with Operations, Payroll and Maintenance Teams.

The page is located under the Operations and Fuel Tabs and can be located at this URL:

The title of the page is Fuel Economy Targets.

To run the report simply select your location and click RUN.

Here is an example of the report for Ames IA. You will want to note you have the capacity to Export this to Excel (perhaps print and post)


The targets that a driver’s performance will be judged against are, in the vast majority of cases, those of the truck in which the driver logged the most miles.

The MPG that a driver achieves is cumulative across ALL trucks he/she may have driven.

You will note above that in order to determine the target performance you will need to know a few things about the truck in question – such as year, apu, etc.

If you see NA it means that the factor does not apply at the specific location.
