Con-way Truckload to boost military vet hiring


Con-way Truckload announced a partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program and its trucking industry technology partner, Fastport, to increase its number of veteran hires throughout 2015.

“Partnering with Fastport and the Hiring Our Heroes program provides us with an avenue to help more veterans and their families find meaningful careers in an industry that needs them and values their experience,” said Joseph Dagnese, president of Joplin, Mo.-based Con-way Truckload.

Today, about 16 percent of Con-way Truckload’s employees are military service veterans, including members of the National Guard and Reserve.
