The U.S. Army Reserve and LTL carrier Con-way Freight have a new program they feel will allow each organization to recruit, train and employ individuals interested in both serving the nation and pursuing a career in the commercial freight transportation industry.
The agreement provides soldiers opportunities for employment with Con-way Freight once they successfully complete their military occupational training. The Army Reserve and Con-way Freight will work together to recruit, license and offer training reciprocity to qualified soldier candidates entering the freight transportation field.
"We are proud to have Con-way Freight, a company that has a strong reputation for supporting the U.S. military, as an employer partner," says Lt. Gen. Jack C. Stultz. "Our partnership will provide soldiers with opportunities to apply the unique skills and experience they have gained in the Army Reserve to the civilian workforce."
"The brave men and women of the Army Reserve are well known for their leadership, teamwork and professionalism. They understand esprit de corps and they bring a level of experience and work ethic to the job that's a tremendous asset for our organization," says John G. Labrie, Con-way Freight president.
