PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Swift Transportation Company (NYSE:SWFT), www.joinswift.com, recently announced their next step to becoming “Best in Class” by awarding its ranked company drivers with a new Quarterly Performance Pay bonus. This exciting new incentive program is designed to retain and reward drivers on their level of excellence. Swift company drivers are currently ranked based on their safety, service and productivity level. This new program begins on July 1, 2012 and bonuses will be paid at the end of each fiscal quarter to ranked drivers who are employed the entire quarter.

The new Quarterly Performance Pay is in addition to the current pay and motivates drivers to improve their ranking through focused attention to safety, on-time service and miles driven.
