ABF Military Partnerships

Veterans find career opportunities and familiar values with ABF

United by a shared commitment to excellence, ArcBest less-than-truckload carrier ABF Freight® and our nation’s military veterans are a natural fit. ABF, recognized as a Military Friendly® Employer in 2021, is proud to support veterans through strategic partnerships designed to help them transition out of the service and into civilian logistics careers. 

Teamsters Military Assistance Program (TMAP) 

A joint training program between the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the U.S. Army, TMAP helps service members from all branches of the military transition to careers as professional truck drivers. During their final weeks of enlistment, participants receive classroom instruction and hands-on training behind the wheel from experienced ABF drivers. 

Candidates who successfully complete the course will earn a CDL-A and a Hazardous Material Certification, along with a job offer from ABF. The company has hired nearly 700 veterans through TMAP since the program began in 2015. 

ABF Military Partnership for Supervisors (AMPS) 

Through AMPS, service members go through an 8-week training program, receiving all the preparation needed to become a successful ABF Freight Operations Supervisor. Upon completion, candidates will receive guaranteed job placement — with a competitive salary and full benefits — in one of our service centers. 

In 2021, more than 40 veterans completed the AMPS program and were placed in positions throughout the country. 

U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Services (PaYS) 

ABF joined the PaYS program in 2019. First-time regular Army and Army Reserve soldiers who participate in PaYS receive two guaranteed job interviews and potential employment after discharge from the Army. As an organization, ABF gets the opportunity to connect with the military as a community partner and mentor soldiers as they transition to civilian employment.
