From khaki to truck keys with XPO

[ May 11, 2022   //   ]

XPO Logistics has become an official partner of Veterans Into Logistics, a national UK charity that connects transport and logistics companies with armed forces service leavers looking to work as truck drivers.
XPO will help mentor veterans and its drivers will share their experience with candidates and help them decide what type of role will suit them once they become a qualified truck driver.
Dan Myers, managing director – UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, said, “Veterans are great team players, they know the power of pulling together to deliver results. Their sense of duty and passion are an inspiration, and we are proud to support this fantastic programme.”
XPO has a long history of helping men and women leaving the armed forces transition to new careers in the transport business. The company has recruiters trained in military culture who connect with veterans through targeted hiring events, customer partnerships and outreach programmes with armed forces organisations.
