As a driver-focused company, Werner understands the challenges that carriers face in the industry today. We value our alliance carriers and are excited to offer various perks that will help them continue to grow their business, provide excellent service, and deliver loads safely and on time.
The Werner Logistics Carrier Rewards program allows carriers that meet a certain threshold each quarter to earn and gain access to rewards. Below, our team answered some common questions about the program.
Q: What types of perks does Werner’s carrier program have to offer?
A: Our carrier rewards program offers qualifying carriers fuel savings at over 18,000 locations, free quick pay and opportunities to lease or purchase equipment from Werner’s Fleet Truck Sales.
Q: Why should I take advantage of the free quick pay?
A: With our rewards program, Platinum and Gold carriers qualify for free quick pay and can avoid the 1.5% service fee that is typically deducted from the total invoice. By utilizing outside factoring sources, carriers may be paying fees as high as 5%.
Carriers that take advantage of our free quick pay option could save as much as $120 per load or $7,500 a year per truck (based on 3% factoring rate on a $4,000 load).
Q: Tell me more about the truck purchase and truck lease programs?
A: As an asset-based 3PL, Werner has a variety of equipment offerings that may interest carriers. Werner Fleet Sales has top-notch, late-model, low-mileage used Freightliners, Cascadias, Kenworth T680s and Peterbilt 579s.
Through our carrier rewards program, Werner Fleet Sales offers a one-time discount on a used tractor purchase for all Platinum and Gold level carriers. These carriers are also invited to take advantage of Werner’s Tractor Lease Program.
Q: How can I earn these rewards?
A: These rewards are determined by a carrier scorecard system, based on the capacity you are providing for brokerage, power only, intermodal or final mile. The score is calculated from the following criteria:
- On time delivery
- Tracking compliance
- Lane diversity (lane count)
- Electronic booking (Loads accepted via Werner EDGE load board or routing guide)
Q: What other perks do you offer carriers?
A: For carriers that utilize our load board, Werner EDGE for Carriers, we reward them each month with a VISA gift card. We’ll monitor the number of loads booked and delivered from our load board each month and reward you the following month.
Q: Who can I contact for more information?
