Troops to Transportation and Logistics Program

March 16, 2012 |

CASY-MSCCN has announced a “Troops to Transportation and Logistics” program (T2TL), placing veterans (with National Guard members receiving preference) in transportation and logistics jobs. A callout for companies to participate is below — for more details on the program, visit the T2TL webpage

CASY-MSCCN’s Troops to Transportation & Logistics ProgramSM (T2TL) isn’t just about driving a truck – it’s about the logistics and details of transportation in its entirety. Every company is affected by a form of transportation—from a simple shipment of office supplies or furniture to car batteries or wind turbines. This Program directly connects us to the over $400 trillion dollar world of commerce and is not committed to any one organization, company or industry. What does this mean? It means we have the ability to directly place
wounded warriors, returning troops, veterans and their spouses/caregivers into an industry that has no limits to training and job placement locally, regionally or globally.

The National Guard and their spouses will be given first rights to training and career opportunities in the T2TL Program—globally. Why? The National Guard has made many sacrifices for us and I want to show my appreciation by stepping up to the plate to volunteer with CASYMSCCN to lead this effort. I challenge YOU to join me and give freely of your time to organizations that serve our military. Now it’s our chance to say “thank you” by connecting our troops with rewarding careers. The military instills the skills necessary to succeed in many industries and we’re ready to match our heroes with careers that best fit their skill set. Along with CASYMSCCN, I am devoting myself and my family at AB Transport, Inc. to a mission to make an impact on the lives of thousands in the military, veterans and their
spouses/caregivers. We are seeking more partners like YOU. Your company will benefit in many ways by adding these reliable, highly skilled individuals to your workforce globally—these talented individuals will make a positive impact on your bottom line plus there are tax benefits for hiring military.

Now is the time to step up and do something good for your country. Join us today to pave the way for the Troops to Transportation & Logistics Program!

I have 8+ years in transportation and logistics and am currents finishing my degree in Transportation and Logistics Management. After returning from my 4th tour I haven’t been able to find a good job to save my life. Please help!! I’m willing to relocate, am single with no chhildren and not afraid of hot weather and long hours.

  15. Motor truck cargo insurance protects the transporter for his responsibility in the event of damaged or lost freight. The policy is purchased with a maximum load limit per vehicle. Cargo insurance coverage limits can range from $10,000 to $100,000 or more. Pricing for this insurance is mainly dependent on the type of cargo being hauled.

  16. Harry says:

    This is a win-win situation for both sides. On one hand, veterans are assured of a job once they leave the service. On the other, entirewarehouse management systems will benefit from the influx of military efficiency.

  17. Darren Oak says:

    The thought of being driven around by a battle-hardened soldier is a little intriguing. Throw in a tank to ride in and I'd say it's a deal.

  18. Mary says:

    Why just give National Guard preference? Did not any Reserve people sacrifice for you? I imagine they did so they should get preference along with NG unless you are calling all reserve personnel NG. There is a difference between them only in operational task but they both bleed digital green.
