Greatwide Dedicated Transport, a division of Dallas TX-based Greatwide Logistics Services, garnered applause of its own July 9 at the Warren County Fair Grounds in Front Royal VA as the sponsor of a Travis Tritt concert/recruitment drive for its Front Royal facility.
The company is recruiting 300 new drivers, and Greatwide was on hand to accept and process applications with approved drivers on site. The company also wanted to recognize the 140 owner-operators and fleet drivers leased to the facility.
As part of its recruitment promotion, Greatwide hosted a hospitality tent featuring free drinks and barbecue for Front Royal contractors, family members, and applicants. Current Greatwide contractors who referred an applicant received free concert tickets, as did drivers who completed an application. As a result, some 300 of the 3,000 concert-goers were guests of the company.
Country music singer Tritt performed some of his greatest hits, including “Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)” and “I'm Gonna Be Somebody.”
Greatwide Dedicated Transport also used the concert to further publicize and promote its ongoing initiative to rebrand the company under the Greatwide Logistics Services corporate umbrella.
Interested driver applicants can phone Greatwide at 877-242-6457.
