DHL Freight turns on driver recruitment initiative

Company hopes to create as many as 500 jobs across Europe.

 
   DHL Freight hopes to create up to 500 jobs across Europe as part of a driver recruitment initiative.
   The company said it is launching a pilot project at five locations that “provide long-term career prospects, modified job profiles offering more varied work and ultimately make it easier to absorb peaks at busy times.”
   As part of the project, about 30 jobs were initially created at the German DHL Freight branches in Maintal, Malsfeld, Koblenz, Sehlem and Erfurt in the spring. The new employees take on driving duties to complement existing transport capacities and, if necessary, also take on other tasks at the branches, the company said.
   Particularly during the peak season, the new drivers will be out on the road covering the first-mile and last-mile legs of deliveries for their particular branches, DHL Freight said.
The Build America Fund is the most conservative proposal, costing less than one cent on the dollar to administer versus up to 35 cents for tolling schemes. Lastly, our proposal is sustainable. It shores up the Highway Trust Fund, which will go broke in just a couple years without action and it doesn’t add one dime to our nation’s debt.
Spot container rates from Shanghai to the U.S. West Coast stood at $1,834 per FEU as of Feb. 15, while rates from Shanghai to the U.S. East Coast totaled $2,968 per FEU, down 8 percent and 2.8 percent, respectively, from a week prior, according to the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index.
