As a leading transportation service provider, challenger motor freight has been serving customers coast-to-coast for over 48 years. The company offers truckload, waste transportation, logistics and warehousing services. Its modern truck fleet, onboard tracking systems and state-of-the-art electronic monitoring ensure timely arrivals. The company is a member of Canada’s Best Managed Companies and is a SmartWay Transport Partner, supporting green initiatives.
In addition to offering a competitive salary, the company provides a range of benefits including health, dental and vision coverage as well as a 401K with company match. The firm’s transportation training academy is also a big plus, with its focus on both practical and theoretical aspects of the job. Additionally, it focuses on providing support to new drivers and is committed to diversity in the trucking industry.
Earlier this year, challenger motor freight was named one of the Top Fleets to Drive For in the large fleet category by the Truckload Carriers Association. This award recognizes fleets that excel in areas such as driver compensation, retirement and pension programs, professional development, military support and driver and community support.
The company was named for its commitment to the communities it serves and to attracting and retaining the best drivers in the industry. It also has a strong focus on safety and is a leader in the use of technology in its operations, such as its EDGE ELITE AERO trailer aerodynamic solutions that improve fuel efficiency and reduce noise pollution.
However, Challenger has been facing challenges of its own lately, namely the shortage of qualified truck drivers. The shortage of truck drivers affects all parts of the country, and the industry as a whole is looking for ways to attract more drivers to its workforce. One way Challenger is trying to address this issue is by expanding its training academy and providing more support for new drivers.
Another area in which Challenger is focusing on increasing its presence is through partnerships with other organizations. For example, the company is a valued partner of Daily Bread Food Bank, helping to pickup thousands of pounds of food donations across the city. The company has a strong commitment to its employees and the community, and it is proud of its role in both.
With a mission to be the premier transportation service provider in the nation, challenger motor freight is continually working to innovate and improve its services. The company recently partnered with NexTech AR Solutions Corp. to develop augmented reality holograms that allow potential employees to experience what it’s like to be a truck driver for the firm. This initiative is aimed at enhancing the recruitment process in an era of intense competition for truck drivers. It is currently developing three-dimensional augmented reality (AR) assets to help recruit and retain truck drivers for the Challenger group. The company is being advised by Gowling WLG, Loopstra Nixon LLP and Ernst & Young Orenda Corporate Finance Inc., and is being financially financed by Scotiabank and Whiteshell Advisory Inc.
