FASTPORT, LLC is proud to host the Trucking Track section on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes Initiative. The Trucking Track section will help military veterans find great careers in the trucking industry.

The Hiring Our Heroes Initiative was launched in March 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment.  To date, Hiring Our Heroes has inspired more than 1,400 businesses of all sizes to hire 255,000 veterans, transitioning servicemembers, and military spouses.

The U.S. Trucking Industry employees more than 4 million drivers across a variety of job types and classifications and currently has more than 300,000 open positions.  Eric Eversole, Executive Director of Hiring Our Heroes, chose FASTPORT for the Trucking Track section of the initiative to help military veterans find great careers in the trucking industry.

FASTPORT, a software company that develops user-friendly technology, was chosen by Executive Director of Hiring Our Heroes Eric Eversole for their software’s ability to better match potential drivers with the prospective carriers.

“It is an honor to have our technology selected by the Hiring Our Heroes Program.  Hiring Our Heroes has an impressive record of success in working with Industry to get job commitments for our Military.” says Bill McLennan, CEO of FASTPORT.  “We are delighted with the positive feedback from our Soldiers, motor carriers and commercial truck drivers.” says Jim Ray, co-Founder of FASTPORT. “Our technology was developed with critical input from commercial drivers and motor carriers to solve the unique challenges of matching commercial driving requirements with qualified drivers.  In this industry, solving the sourcing challenge from both perspectives is critical.”
