Werner brass get bonuses

| 12/9/2008

The top executives at Omaha-based Werner Enterprises are getting some nice Christmas gifts this year.

The Associated Press reported that the top four officers will share more than $1 million in bonuses, with the CEO and chairman each receiving $350,000.

Werner – a truckload operation with more than 8,000 trucks – showed a 3 percent increase in net income in the third quarter, while many other trucking companies recorded losses. CNNMoney attributed the increase to Werner's efforts to improve efficiency and offer other services in addition to trucking.
