RWI Transportation, an asset-based logistics company providing regional and national truckload, expedited, and refrigerated warehousing services, is launching an educational program geared toward independent owner operators.

RWI University features nine core business courses to help owner operators effectively manage their businesses, according to a nes release.

Courses cover topics such as getting started as a business owner, fuel management, budgeting and tax deductions. There is no cost to participate.

RWI Transportation developed the curriculum using direct feedback from owner operators,
“We listened to the pains of our current owner operator base to determine what courses could help them to better manage their business,” said Tom Curee, RWI Transportation’s driver retention specialist who helped develop the curriculum.

RWI Transportation recently expanded their orientation facility by adding a new mobile office outside of their corporate headquarters in Wilder, Ky. RWI University also will be accessible to owner operators from any mobile device or computer, as well as from RWI Transportation’s terminals in Dallas, Texas, and Bloomington, Calif.

RWI Transportation plans an open house for current owner operators March 31 to April 4, when the company officially launches RWI University.

RWI is an affiliate of the Castellini Group of Cos., a distributor of fresh fruits and vegetables.
