COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- West Side Transport has opened a terminal in Columbus, Ohio to service increased business in this region. The terminal will serve as the base for an expanding fleet of "home daily" drivers. "West Side recognizes the continued struggle to find quality drivers," says Ron Joseph, West Side's COO. "Drivers are telling us that they want to be home more and we want to accommodate those needs by providing home daily opportunities in this market. The Columbus terminal is West Side's fifth and joins terminal locations in Cedar Rapids, IA, South St. Paul, MN, Glenwood (Chicago), IL and Indianapolis, IN. West Side also offers "home weekly" and "home twice weekly" driving opportunities for those drivers seeking to spend more time "on the road." The positions are open to experienced drivers as well as recent truck driving school graduates. Along with creating additional driving positions the new terminal will help in supporting the current and future customer base. "The Columbus service center strengthens West Side's truckload asset network providing our customers solid foundation to further deliver the premium service they expect and deserve," said Jim Russo, VP of Sales.
"The Columbus terminal not only gives us an opportunity to provide a home daily position but allows West Side the ability to connect with our drivers domiciled in Columbus and surrounding areas. Our main concerns are providing a quality paycheck, getting the driver home and treating every driver with the respect they deserve and by having a terminal located near our driver base. This facility will help us in accomplishing these goals," says Joseph.
