XPO supports charity to get veterans into logistics

XPO Logistics, provider of freight transportation services, has announced a new partnership with Veterans into Logistics.

Veterans into Logistics is a national UK charity that connects transport and logistics companies with military veterans and armed forces service leavers to create pathways to employment as truck drivers. XPO and Veterans into Logistics will work together to help qualified candidates train for HGV licences and prepare for employment.

As an official partner of Veterans into Logistics, XPO will help mentor veterans and service leavers who are interested in training for jobs in the sector. XPO drivers will share their experience with candidates and help them decide what type of role will suit them once they become a qualified truck driver.

XPO has a history of helping men and women leaving the armed forces transition to new careers in the transport business. The company has recruiters trained in military culture who connect with veterans through targeted hiring events, customer partnerships and outreach programmes with armed forces organisations.

Veterans into Logistics is based in Manchester, with the mission of training ex-military personnel to succeed in meaningful careers in transport and logistics.
