Chad England, the company’s chief executive officer, said, “C R England has always had a tradition of providing great jobs and great benefits for our employees. In an ever-changing and increasingly competitive marketplace, this multi-million-dollar investment in our drivers better positions us to attract not only those who come to us for training and are new to the industry, but also seasoned and experienced drivers who want a proven career path. Great companies seek to continuously improve, and this is another step in that direction for us and our drivers.”
