Austin, TX  - FASTPORT represented its partners and the U.S. trucking industry at this Hiring Our Heroes Job Fair. Scores of veterans at the event were introduced to great career opportunities with great employers in the trucking industry through the truckingtrck.org website.

“We are committed to reach as many veterans as possible to educate, motivate, inspire and hire them into the trucking industry,” said Bill McLennan, CEO of FASTPORT. “The U.S. Chamber’s Hiring Our Heroes job fairs, transition summits and expos are terrific vehicles to meet our talented veterans seeking new careers.”

Veterans braved the pouring weather to make it to the summit. That was just one demonstration of their commitment to find a new career, and the Trucking Track can help them meet their professional goals. "The U.S. Trucking Industry has committed to hire over 150,000 veterans in great careers," continued McLennan, and the industry is making it easy for veterans to find the right job for them in trucking by consolidating their jobs for veterans onto the truckingtrack.org through FASTPORT’s JobMaps™ in partnership with Hiring Our Heroes.”
