Suggested Mobile Apps for Truck Drivers

Mobile Apps for Truck Drivers - Driver Recruitment with DriveTransXThe use of mobile devices and mobile apps are booming in the trucking industry and it’s clear that they are a huge part of our lives on the road.

Industry surveys estimate that roughly 60% of truck drivers use their mobile phone for work and they help to improve inefficiencies. Not only do they help us remain connected with our loved ones, but they can improve our safety and track our routes with weather condition updates and alerting capabilities.

Everything of course is very dependent on our personal mobile plans and service provider. We strongly recommend referencing your service plan and possibly negotiating with your provider for something financially suitable that fits with your lifestyle and allows you to use your phone wherever Your Lane takes you.

Western Canada’s Largest Trucking Recruitment Event Truxpo 2016

Truxpo2016Is trucking a lifestyle for you?  Are you are looking to make a career move? Would you like to get some in-depth responses to your questions before making a big move?

Visit with Our Recruiters at DriveTransX at Western Canada’s largest trucking event, Truxpo at Tradex in Abbotsford, May 13-14, 2016.

TRUXPO: Is an annual event where the many companies within the trucking industry come together to discover the new commercial truck and transportation equipment.

The show is typically held in September but a number of important industry factors have led to moving it to spring. “Early autumn through Christmas is the peak season for the trucking industry,” said Louise Yako, President & CEO, BCTA. “Scheduling a major industry event like TRUXPO during slower periods is more convenient for the industry. We’re looking forward to hosting TRUXPO in May 2016.”

Women in Trucking

WomenInTrucking-DriveTransX#DidYouKnow that 3% is the total percentage of women working in freight transportation.

Currently there is a huge opportunity for women to capitalize on the many jobs available in the trucking industry, such as transport trailer technician, truck mechanic, and truck driver.  The industry as a whole is reporting a labour shortage largely due to aging workforce and lower percentage of young people.  Of course also contributing to the shortage is the below national average of women workers in the industry.

Trucking HR Canada has developed a committee to develop an employment plan to help increase the number of women participating in the trucking industry. For the complete story, the plan of action, and other related details can be found on their website here.

If you are interested Our Recruiters would love to Chat Live with anyone wanting to drive their career forward.

Working at TransX Group of Companies is a Treat

TransX - Corporate Culture is a Real Treat in the Industry

It’s a win-win when everyone in our community is happier and healthier.

We care are about our employees
and giving back to the communities that we work in. We believe that through a strong promotion of building team morale, and personal development that everyone begins to takes pride in what they are doing.

Each year during the fall season we Run A United Way Workplace Campaign to promote a positive and fun work environment to endorse team building and team morale.

Our latest United Way Campaign started with a staff appreciation BBQ where we had some carnival type games and a dunk tank. The campaign was a week long and we planned several events such as a luncheon with two guest speakers who talked about poverty and adversity. We included a 50/50 raffle and guess the amount of candy in the jar. A big hit was our random acts of kindness event where employees had the opportunity to send flowers or candy to co-workers they felt deserved to be recognized or deserved a thank you.

It’s through these events that you really get to meet your co-workers and understand them on a more personal level. The fun was definitely put back into fundraising and we were/are very proud of the proceeds we generated for the United Way.
