The truck driving industry offers numerous opportunities for veterans who, in turn, can be a powerful workforce for fleet truck companies. Thankfully, there are many bills and initiatives designed to help former military personnel start a new career in the trucking industry.
Hiring veterans for fleet trucking is beneficial for everyone involved. The trucking industry offers an extensive range of opportunities for veterans who are searching for a post-deployment “new normal.” Military service gives veterans a wide new set of skills that could be hard to adapt to a desk job or call center. For example, many veterans are used to a certain amount of isolation and independence, and enjoy active and on the road. In this way, truck driving is often the perfect fit for those who have recently returned and are looking for a new career.
Today, increasing amounts of troops are undergoing rapid reduction and being sent home. At the same time, demands for freight shipments continue to rise and create a shortage of drivers. The industry currently faces a driver’s shortage, and employing veterans may be the solution. Aside from an increased workforce, there are countless benefits to the trucking companies who hire veterans. As a whole, veterans are a ready and willing workforce, eager to find their new place in civilian life. Adaptability and perseverance are just two of the traits that many veterans can bring to the table if given the chance. They are capable of filling any need in the trucking industry, which boasts a broad range of career types and opportunities in numerous job categories.

Veterans need only apply for their COE (certificate of eligibility) with the VA. Upon receiving their eligibility benefits they can then enter into our 4-10 week training program. We then help place them with the trucking company of their choice that fits best. There are a few companies that will reimburse their benefits.
