C.R. England Unveils Military-Branded Trucks and Trailers
C.R. England, a refrigerated carrier based in Salt Lake City, is honoring veterans with five new military-themed trucks and trailers to be driven exclusively by former members of the military. The company also announced its goal to add 350 veterans to their driver force by the end of the year, giving the company more than 1,300 drivers who have military backgrounds.
C.R. England Chairman Dan England said, "Not only is it our duty to ensure that those coming out of the military have great jobs, but it is our privilege to hire these men and women.”
C.R. England is offering new incentives to attract veterans to its driver force, including access to Veterans' Career counselors to assist veterans in finding the driving job within C.R. England that provides the best career fit. The company also provides tuition incentives for veterans and monthly "Veteran of the Month" recognition in its publications.

New veteran hires also receive a hat and a special decal for their truck that recognizes them as an "Honored Veteran,” and each year, C.R. England will select veterans to drive the unique military-branded trucks and trailers. The company plans to make at least five additions to the military-branded fleet annually.
C.R. England ranks No. 19 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in the United States and Canada.
