Why You Should Hire Veterans for Your CDL Driving Jobs

November 10, 2020

In addition to their experience behind the wheel, military veterans are motivated, disciplined, and proven team players.

Veterans can often have a hard time transitioning back into civilian life once they complete active duty. Fortunately, many of the skills these veterans hone in the military can be directly applied to the trucking industry, making them excellent candidates for CDL driving positions. “Veterans bring a skillset that is embedded during boot camp and ongoing training throughout their career.  The military instills the best qualities that make a great truck driver,” says Giovanni Colosi, Vice President, Driver Careers, TransForce Group. “Veterans display leadership, dependability, self-discipline, attention to detail, critical thinking, mental stamina and teamwork.  These qualities are what help keep them safe and reliable on the road, which is important for our customers.”
