At the end of May, ITS was proud to sponsor and participate in the 3rd Annual Road Today Truck Show. The event was held in Brampton and brought out thousands of visitors. Along with the 100 booths promoting various company services there was an interesting selection of information and entertainment made available. The special events included a show & shine competition, road safety awareness, educational seminars, motorcycle drill performance, truck roll over recovery display, kids and family entertainment, and an ethnic food court.
Mike Crawford, VP of sales for ITS states “It was a very professionally run event, well attended and well organized. We had a much bigger presence at the show this year and we’re pleased to help sponsor the event.” Also in attendance from ITS were Karen Atwal – Manager of Recruiting Toronto, Ontario and Chris McMillan – Field Operations Manager. Karen is fluent in Hindu and Pun Jabi and is a great asset to ITS in communicating information about the benefits of working for ITS. Chris covers a bigger territory and helps with the recruiting efforts for both company drivers and owner operators.
ITS employs over 300 drivers that run domestically and to the USA and the Indian driving force makes up a significant portion of their driving force. Both single and team drivers are utilized depending on the distance and time commitments required. Rob Haggerty, President of ITS states, “The new Canadian driving force has taken over where our farming communities left off in creating a resource for manning our fleet operations. We need them, we appreciate them and we want them to feel welcome at ITS and be treated with the respect they deserve.”
