Greatwide Logistics Services, a national provider of 3PL services, announced they have expanded a key program offering healthy options to owner-operators.
GreathealthÃ¢"žÂ¢ was established in partnership with several key vendors who offer preferred pricing to Greatwide's large fleet of owner-operators. GreathealthÃ¢"žÂ¢ services include discounts on health club memberships, providing access to blood pressure kiosks at Greatwide operations centers that are sponsored by vendors such as the Healthy Trucking Association of America (HTAA). Greatwide is a charter member of the HTTA and provides free memberships.
Greatwide holds Wellness Day events at each operations center and will continue the program in 2010. The on-site services are provided by local GreathealthÃ¢"žÂ¢ partners and include vision tests, blood pressure tests, cholesterol screenings and flu shots. Greatcare vendor sponsors include One Beacon Insurance, Wholesale Truck and Finance, Mondics Insurance Group, Arrow Truck Sales, Worksite Benefits and Sleep Pointe.
"Greatwide is determined to drive awareness and provide our professional drivers with the information and resources necessary to pursue good health," says Rob Newell, Vice President of Capacity Management. "We are well aware of the health trends among truck drivers and have made it a priority to provide resources that will hopefully lead to healthier lifestyle choices."
