DriveAtlas says it is hiring 200 new owner operators by year’s end. This hiring comes in response to a increases in shipment volume and household moving contracts, freight transportation and logistics services throughout 2014. In addition, the company teamed up with workforce mobility management companies Weichert Workforce Mobility, which also requires the need for additional drivers. The majority of the new fleet growth will be in the Shuttle Fleet, a nationwide drop and hook trailer delivery service network.
The company is looking for owner-operators with at least one year over-the-road experience for the Shuttle Fleet and Commercial Truckload Division, owner operators with at least two years of experience in household moving for the Relocation Services Group and one year of experience transporting electronics or other specialized goods for the Special Products Division. Drivers signing on through May will receive a $5,000 sign-on bonus for the Shuttle Fleet or the Relocation Services Group. All DriveAtlas Direct Fleet divisions are leased-on with and dispatched from Atlas’ headquarters based out of Evansville, Ind., though these drivers can live anywhere in the lower 48 states.
