Holland announced plans to hire an additional 450 qualified over-the-road and local city drivers throughout the Midwest in the next few months. Driver recruitment efforts are systemwide with a spotlight on the areas of Evansville, South Bend, Ind.; Chicago and Wheeling, Ill.; Cleveland and Youngstown, Ohio; Louisville, Ky.; and Milwaukee, Wis.
Holland says it continues to experience increasing demand in the next-day delivery market and in anticipation of further growth has been adding professional drivers and equipment. In 2011, the company hired 750 drivers. So far in 2012, the company has hired nearly 300 drivers and added more than 100 tractors and more than 450 additional trailers.
“Our employees are committed to safety and customer service,” says Scott Ware, Holland president. “Our professional drivers are the heart of our ability to provide fast, flexible and reliable transportation services that support our customers’ supply chains.”
