Boston, MA - Massachusetts Reservists and National Guard Members along with military veterans and spouses who attended the Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) Job Expo at Boston Red Sox' Fenway Park were helped by FASTPORT to find the best employers and employment opportunities in the trucking industry through the HOH Trucking Track Program at truckingtrack.org.

"Our Reservists and Guardsmen are highly sought after by the U.S. Trucking Industry's leading employers," said Bill McLennan, CEO of FASTPORT. "The trucking industry has been widely recognized as a great industry with great employers by Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR)."

Industry leading employers seeking to hire National Guard and Reserves include Airgas, Clean Harbors, Con-way Truckload, Holland, JB Hunt, Knight Transportation, Maverick, Penske, Ryder, TMC Transportation, Transport Company of America,  and YRC Freight. Collectively, these employers have committed to hire over 25,000 veterans and are aggressively recruiting to meet those commitments.

"Having spent 6 years in the Marine Corps Reserve, I understand first hand the need to find employers that value the reserve and guard commitment and that will help these men and women foster a great civilian career," continued McLennan. "The trucking industry is a terrific place for our nation's Reserve and Guard to seek employment with great career advancement opportunities."
