FASTPORT serves veterans as a non-profit organization dedicated to helping military veterans transition into successful careers in the trucking industry. With a mission to connect the industry with a highly skilled and motivated veteran workforce, FASTPORT has become a leading resource for veterans seeking a new career after leaving the military.
Transition Trucking Award
FASTPORT is best known for their mission to help veterans transition into empowering careers and for working to recognize vets in practical, yet life-changing ways.
One of FASTPORT’s most exciting campaigns is their annual Transition Trucking: Driving for Excellence Award– which awards a fully-loaded T-680 truck to a deserving rookie veteran who enters the trucking industry.
Veteran Apprenticeships: FASTPORT’s Fast Track in Trucking
FASTPORT understands the unique challenges that veterans face when transitioning from military to civilian life and provides them with the resources and support they need to succeed in the trucking industry.
One of the key ways that FASTPORT helps veterans is by providing a comprehensive education and training program. This program includes an Apprenticeship Program that teaches veterans the specific skills and knowledge needed to become a professional truck driver. The program covers everything from the technical aspects of truck driving to the regulations and safety standards of the industry.
In addition to education and training, FASTPORT also provides veterans with job placement assistance. They work closely with leading trucking companies to connect veterans with job opportunities that match their skills and interests. FASTPORT’s extensive network of industry partners provides veterans with access to some of the best job opportunities in the industry.
Another important aspect of FASTPORT’s work is providing veterans with ongoing support and resources throughout their careers. They offer programs to help veterans overcome common challenges, such as dealing with long periods of time away from home, adjusting to a new work environment, and managing the stress of life on the road. With the support of FASTPORT, veterans are able to build successful careers in the trucking industry and lead fulfilling lives outside of work.
