Bi-State Development and the St. Louis Regional Freightway are launching “I Choose STL,” a new platform that will promote local jobs, workforce recruitment and training programs throughout the region and the Midwest.
The pilot launch of IChooseSTL.com will focus on promoting job and training opportunities for the St. Louis region’s trucking industry.
Launching of the site is anticipated this fall.
Marie C. Lamie, executive director of the Freightway, said the website will be a resource for sharing industry successes and positive quality of life articles that raise the region’s profile as one of the best places to work and live.
It will also be promoted through digital and industry campaigns to markets throughout the Midwest.
“The St. Louis region’s world-class freight network is one of the region’s biggest advantages and will be a key factor in supporting the U.S. Department of Transportation’s anticipated 45 percent increase in freight volumes over the next three decades,” Lamie said.
Submittals received by Sept. 17 will be reviewed and included with the inaugural launching of “I Choose STL” this fall.
