SHREVEPORT, La. — Tango Transport has announced that the carrier will be adding at least 200 new jobs throughout 2010.
“We are pleased to be in a position that allows us to provide job opportunities to an additional 200 families from the Ark-La-Tex,” Executive Vice President Chris Gorman said.
The majority of the new jobs will be for commercial truck drivers although there will be non-driving positions created as well, he said.
“In addition to company drivers and owner-operators, we will be adding some office jobs as well as diesel mechanics,” Gorman said.
Going against a national trend that has seen many trucking companies fail or downsize, Tango Transport is growing.
“The current state of the economy has been very hard on our industry,” Gorman said. “We are fortunate that Tango is not only being awarded additional business from existing customers, we are adding new customers as well.”
