R+L Carriers Launches Hometown Showcase Tour
“Delivering Opportunities to Students Across America”
Wilmington, Ohio 12/2/2015 R+L Carriers, a worldwide leader in LTL shipping and logistics services, announces the launch of their “Hometown Showcase” tour. This large-scale campaign introduces freight transportation, logistics education, career opportunities and shipping solutions to communities across the United States. The Hometown Showcase tour aims to support achievement and growth within communities by hosting their events right in the heart of their hometown. The Hometown Showcase tour kicks off December 3-5, 2015, at the OHSAA 44th annual football state championship games in Columbus, Ohio, hosted by the Greater Columbus Sports Commission and The Ohio State University Department of Athletics. R+L’s Hometown Showcase will be on display just outside Ohio Stadium (The Horseshoe) for all seven division games of the Ohio High School State Football Championships.
R+L Carriers has furnished a fully-custom, 53-foot, Hometown Showcase Hauler to serve as the entertainment hub for each event. In addition to 5 interactive stations highlighting career and shipping information, the Hometown Showcase features 11 HD video displays, containing R+L’s career opportunities, history, industry facts, a technologically advanced Bose Ride seating simulator, and more. Although these events often take place at high schools, visitors can expect games, activities and entertainment for all ages.
“We want to bring awareness to students across America about the Logistics and Transportation industry and the many career opportunities R+L Carriers has to offer,” said Greg Bronner, VP of Marketing for R+L Carriers.
In accordance with their mission to support communities, R+L Carriers is also offering donations to participating schools and booster clubs. In an effort to provide continuing education opportunities to local high school students, R +L is offering a scholarship to one student at each event, which is awarded upon their high school graduation.
“Supporting school districts across the country is a simple way to champion the preparation of our young men and women as they prepare for the next stage of their life,” Bronner added. “With over 140 service centers nationwide, whether they want to be Drivers or Mechanics, or they’re interested in Technology, Sales, Communications, or Administration, we have opportunities for employees of every interest and skill level who want to make R+L Carriers their home.”
Hometown Showcase is actively scheduling future events including the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl on December 19th as well as numerous college career days at universities across the U.S. To learn more about R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase or to inquire about having the experience brought to your local community, please contact us.
