It’s also a top-ranked carrier in terms of the military. In recognition of this, Reddaway was recognized as a Military Friendly Employer by VIQTORY for 2020. How does Reddaway rank so well among the military-friendly trucking companies? We’ve got the info on that along with how to apply to this trucking company right here at Trucker Classifieds.

Top Military Friendly Employer

As a certified Military Friendly Employer for 2020, Reddaway hires and trains military veterans. The goal is to help these vets identify the skills that will help them fast-track their way to a trucking job. This generally starts with applying for the Military Skills Test Waiver for the CDL exam.

However, 88M classified veterans also have truck driver skills that ensure they already know how to safely and securely operate a big rig. It is only a matter of translating those skills into the commercial market—and that’s where Reddaway comes in. The company helps drivers make the most of their career in the industry.

According to the president of Reddaway, Bob Stone, “We are grateful to all our veterans. Here at Reddaway, we are committed to supporting veterans in their search for employment opportunities in the transportation industry. We know veterans bring the skills, attitude, and team spirit that helps them become successful Reddaway employees. Our Military Friendly® Employer designation recognizes our past efforts to recruit those who have served in the military, as well as our efforts to continue in the future to welcome new veterans to our team.”

Along with hiring veterans and helping them get a trucking job, Reddaway also provides families with veteran support and recognition at company events. Truck drivers and other Reddaway workers wear apparel that signifies they are veterans among the trucking community. This honor and recognition allow vet truck drivers to have pride in their dedicated time in the service.
