6,000 logistics businesses, including many FedEx Ground contractors, and their 250,000+ employees to benefit from powerful retirement saving plans

SAN FRANCISCO, July 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Human Interest, one of the fastest-growing 401(k) providers in the country, has been selected as the exclusive 401(k) partner for the Route Consultant Purchasing Alliance (RCPA), a premier membership organization for logistics professionals. Human Interest’s retirement benefits are now available to over 250,000 delivery business owners and drivers in the RCPA network.

Human Interest’s 401(k) platform is available to all of RCPA’s members, which includes FedEx Ground contractors and other logistics businesses. RCPA selected Human Interest to help its members attract and retain employees by offering competitive retirement benefits. On average, workers with access to retirement plans are 40%1 less likely to leave a job within the first year. In addition to being highly engaged in their careers, logistics workers on the Human Interest platform have above-average participation rates at 82%.2

“The logistics industry is the backbone of America and the drivers, schedulers, maintenance crews, and many others who work in it deserve access to key benefits that can help them achieve a secure retirement. Human Interest is proud to serve as the first port of call for small and medium sized businesses, like RCPA members, looking to attract and retain talent in concert with empowering their employees to have a more secure financial future,” said Rakesh Mahajan, Chief Revenue Officer at Human Interest.

RCPA’s members will also be eligible for Human Interest’s first-of-its-kind 3% cash back on contributions (up to $250), offered as part of their educational programming for participants, also known as (k)ickstart.3 The novel incentive comes in addition to any employer matching contributions.
