The Arkansas Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense program, awarded ABF Freight a Pro Patria award for supporting employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve. The award recognizes companies who give their Guard and Reserve employees additional non-mandated benefits outside of those required by the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act.
“These awards truly reflect ABF Freight’s commitment to our employees who serve in the U.S. military,” ABF Freight President Tim Thorne said. “As a veteran, I am so proud to work for a company that supports our nation’s heroes. We have a long history of supporting those who serve, and I thank the ESGR for recognizing our efforts.”
