OTP Program

GP Transco introduced a new program, called OTP, which stands for Outstanding Trucking Professionals. The program gives company drivers an opportunity to earn more through this revenue sharing program. Most drivers will be eligible for the program at some point, and it gives drivers a great opportunity to significantly increase their salaries if they can maintain their requirements.

In order to qualify for the program, drivers must meet and maintain the following requirements:

  • On-time deliveries
  • Proper communication
  • Proper maintenance
  • Attendance and HOS utilization
  • Professional behavior and attitude
  • Safety-first attitude

Those who qualify for OTP will receive an additional 6cpm. Drivers are reviewed every six months, and if they qualify for the program at least 75%, they will get an additional 1cpm added to their OTP earnings. The additional earnings can really increase the driver’s yearly salary.

Some drivers earn an additional $9,000 or more through the program each year.

According to GP Transco, about half of their drivers receive OTP in any given week, so there is ample opportunity to earn more through diligence and commitment to your work.

GP Transco Driver Reviews

GP Transco has an open-door policy, so drivers can express their concerns without fear. The company understands that happy employees are what drive their success. They are open to feedback to improve.

Their open-door policy and high pay give them high marks with drivers. GP Transco has earned favorable ratings with their drivers, but like any other carrier, they do get some complaints. These complaints aren’t out of the ordinary and are primarily focused on: being out on the road for long periods of time and poor management.

Most drivers are happy with management and the work/life balance, but a few feel they spend too much time on the road.

Overall, drivers are happy with the company, their pay, their benefits and the overall work experience.
