Swift Transportation, one of the largest publicly traded trucking companies in the United States, has selected Deploy's hourly hiring solution to help them manage the process of hiring new and replacement truck drivers from the thousands of applicants they receive each year.
ÂOur decision to use Deploy reflects our strategy to invest in technology,Â said Otto Welch, director of recruiting at Swift. The company expects Deploy will increase the number of applicants, reduce costs in the hiring process by filtering out unqualified candidates, and increase the quality of hires. ÂThe quality of our truck drivers is paramount,Â said Mr. Welch.
ÂWe are excited to be working with Swift, a true leader in the trucking industry,Â says Nicole M. Stata, founder, president and CEO of Deploy.
