The cost of operating a truck was up 6 percent in 2017, according to recent ATRI report.
This year, 239 total team members participated in the campaign and contributed to Ruan's $228,500 donation to the United Way of Central Iowa!
Ruan's President and COO Dan Van Alstine was elected vice chairman of the American Trucking Associations' (ATA) Board of Directors and will eventually serve as chairman in 2023.
Our professional truck drivers are more than simply a part of this success; they are essential to it. Ruan drivers receive ongoing safety training, full benefits after 60 days and are recognized through several awards programs. More than 60 percent of our truck drivers are home every night, and nearly all are home multiple times per week. That makes for some very satisfied drivers—and is one of the reasons we have a driver retention rate five times the industry average.
At Ruan, we are extremely proud of the caliber, professionalism and dedication of our maintenance team. Our diesel technicians and service managers utilize the latest diagnostic tools and equipment necessary to solve today's maintenance challenges. These diesel technicians are truly the engine that drives our business.
Each Ruan employee is an advocate for our customers—searching for ways to improve their supply chain and providing dedicated, personalized service. Achieving this takes a high level of teamwork and dedication, which is why the job of a Ruan terminal manager, dispatcher, service manager and operations manager is so important. We want you to use your abilities to be entrepreneurial and to take ownership of decision-making.
We count among our loyal customers some of the largest, most respected corporations in the world, and the list keeps growing. Therefore, we hire talented, motivated individuals for our corporate office jobs—and in return we invest in their professional development and provide advancement opportunities. Ruan truly offers opportunities in every direction.
