Many veterans have found a career in freight. To those of you who have served in the U.S. Military and to everyone who has served around the world, thank you. Happy Veterans Day. Nearly 40 percent of owner-operators have served in the military, according to the The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA). We sat down with Ira Lawrence, owner-operator of Washington-based Lawrence Express Lines, and veteran of the Royal Canadian Navy, to learn more about why trucking was the right fit for him after 14 years of service.
If you know a veteran looking for a job, we’re hiring in Seattle and Atlanta. To see current job openings, visit our careers page.
