WILMINGTON – On Monday, Wilmington-based global transportation company R+L Carriers announced that it would be issuing bonuses of up to $1,000 for all of its employees, citing the economic benefits from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

“R+L Carriers are just the latest company we’ve seen invest in their employees as a result of tax reform,” Stivers said. “For folks in Wilmington and across the country, these bonuses can be used for everyday needs, pay for a car repair, or be put in a savings account.  This money can make a real difference for families, and I applaud R+L for their commitment to their employees.”

Family owned and operated, R+L Carriers began in 1965 with Ralph L. “Larry” Roberts Sr.’s purchase of a single truck.  Today, the company serves all 50 states, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and many Caribbean islands with nearly 15,000 tractors and trailers and over 12,000 employees. As they have grown, they have maintained their core principles of treating employees like family and are “always looking for new ways to show our employees how important they are.”

There are now over 3.5 million hard-working taxpayers who have received a bonus, raise, or increase in 401(k) as a result of tax reform. To view a list of employers who have re-invested in their employees, click here:
