Holland to hire 500 veterans

| 12/12/2014

More and more trucking industry companies are hiring veterans each year. Time to add another to the list. Next-day transportation service Holland has announced that it will hire 500 veterans.

As part of its growth and expansion, the Michigan company has partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring Our Heroes and FASTPORT. Launched in 2011, Hiring Our Heroes is a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. FASTPORT develops user-friendly technology to aid carriers in their hiring process.

“America is at a turning point with an estimated 1 million veterans returning home in the next five years,” said Scott Ware, president of Holland, in a press release. “Our business is expanding and job opportunities abound. Holland is proud to welcome home our veterans with great career prospects.”

Founded in Holland, Mich., in 1929, Holland provides next-day less-than-truckload shipments in the Central and Southeastern United States and Eastern Canada. Holland provides full-state regional delivery from 57 service centers in 12 states and two provinces: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, as well as Ontario and Quebec, Canada.
