JR’s Expedited Freight (JRs), a Rexing Company, is proud to announce its partnership with Ivy Tech and their CDL training program partner DriveCo , in advancing the CDL training program to help build and grow the regional truck driving industry, which is critical to the economy.
“We are excited to commemorate the start of this partnership by investing in and sponsoring the drivers’ shelter at Ivy Tech’s CDL training program site,” said Dylan Rexing, CEO of Rexing Companies. “Ivy Tech and DriveCo’s continued commitment to this program represents an advancement towards offering more opportunities in the future in the trucking industry and more options for local individuals in obtaining a financially rewarding career.
“Through this partnership, we are committed to help increase the labor pool of skilled drivers which has been steadily declining over the past several years. Once an individual completes the CDL training program, they have career opportunities with a local premier company that will continue to support them,” Rexing added.
“First, we are grateful for the shelter for our students, so that we can comfortably continue classes year-round with protection from the sun, wind, and rain,” said Ivy Tech Chancellor for the Evansville Campus Daniela Vidal. “But more importantly, it is great to have a company who is dedicated to hiring Ivy Tech trained and skilled graduates. The need is great, not only in our 10-county region, but across the nation.”
