Roadway was acquired last year by competitor Yellow Roadway. The deal formed the largest less-than-truckload company in the U.S. The carrier operates some 8,500 tractors and 27,650 trailers through a network of about 370 terminals. IT employees can expand their skills through technical training, mentoring, coaching and experiential learning opportunities. Other benefits include flextime, telecommuting and job sharing. IT employees can earn up to two additional vacation days if their team meets aggressive goals for code reuse.
