Serving Our Customers After Serving Their Country

For National Military Appreciation Month, Direct Traffic Solutions sat down with its veterans to talk about their service and the experiences that have shaped them into who they are today.

For this multi-part blog post series, DTS veterans detail their journeys to serving our customers after serving our country.

We are committed to matching military expertise with available career opportunities in the transportation industry. Our veteran employees join DTS with soft skills gained from actual experiences.

For instance, Thomas TJ Lawler. TJ is DTS’ Talent Acquisition Director, who joined us after 24 years in the service culminating as U.S. Navy Master Chief (RET). “Among the ‘soft skills’ that veterans bring to transportation management are specialized training in challenging and purposeful high-stress situations and leadership training, which the veterans will pass on to other employees. Just as we did in the Navy, the opportunities and potential here at DTS are unlimited when giving them the tools, time, and training,” says Lawler.

We ask that you join together and reflect on these upcoming stories, remember, honor, and support the men and women who have served and are currently serving.
