March 25, 2016 was a great day of celebration at the Market Transport offices. Market Transport became the U.S. Army's 570th partner through the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program, in an effort to provide employment opportunities for Veterans.

Market Transport, a division of Union-Transportation Worldwide Inc., provides a fleet of trucks, trailers, and third party logistics for intermodal, dedicated, regional and long haul transportation needs. Since 1969, they have earned their customers' trust by offering flexible transportation solutions that achieve their most complicated logistics and organizational goals. Market Transport is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, with trucking facilities in Washington, California, Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

The ceremony was attended by Robert Underwood, Recruiter and Driver Resources Supervisor for Market Transport, Ltd., Maj. Matthew Giacobbe, Portland Recruiting BN Executive Officer, and Karim Delgado, Advertising and Public Affairs Chief of the Portland Recruiting BN. The three kept the ceremony small (in Underwood’s office). Underwood expressed how excited he is about the partnership with the U.S. Army. “We would like to do more with PaYS because we are so large, and are located in other areas,” said Underwood.

Underwood mentioned how being able to leverage PaYS would be ideal because they would be able to attract the same drivers in the motor transport industry to those in the military with similar experience as his veteran drivers. Underwood did not fail to mention that his top three employees were all Veterans. “You can be assured that the works get done.”

Underwood shared a personal story about his son - who is currently serving in the Army as a Healthcare Specialist. He was grateful about how the Army gave his son the discipline needed to be a better person, “It [Army] completely changed him.”

Market Transport is looking forward to highlighting its first Soldier who will be hired through the PaYS Program.
