Werner Enterprises featured in Omaha World-Herald

Werner Enterprises was featured in a recent Omaha World-Herald article titled, “Werner Enterprises is Key in Linking Chinese Tile to Omaha Kitchen.” The article highlighted the important role logistics, specifically Werner Global Logistics, plays in connecting the world economy.

The Company has successfully evolved in the logistics sector, and China has been key to its growth. “We went in to China with a very clear understanding of our customers’ needs for transparency, efficiency, a fact-based supply chain,” stated Craig Stoffel, vice president of global logistics.

Werner began to fine-tune its logistics operations in Mexico and Canada before making the move to China, which was done based on customers’ needs. “We have the capability to offer them options,” stated Stoffel. “It’s not just about bringing it to the same destination faster.” Werner Global Logistics tracks shipments and will work to solve problems with time constraints.

Werner is proud of its local roots, and as an Omaha based business, the Company strives to keep ties with other local business as much as possible. While plenty of competition exists in the market, the Company has been aggressive, resulting in the growth and success of Werner Global Logistics.

Logistics offers Werner a way to diversify and grow without needing to invest in assets such as trucks. Currently, logistics accounts for 26 percent of Werner’s revenue.

“When you don’t have visibility, you don’t have control,” stated Craig Stoffel, vice president of global logistics. Having the information and ability to adjust the transportation plan allows companies to manage their inventories better.

Having a company such as Werner Global Logistics in Omaha helps Nebraska compete for overseas business. Werner is often called up by state officials to inform newcomers of Nebraska’s transportation advantages. The story of Werner Enterprises is a strong example of growth and success on it’s own.

Werner named a Top 100 Military Friendly Employer

Werner Enterprises has been selected as a "Top 100 Military Friendly Employer for 2013" by G.I. Jobs magazine. The selection was based on Werner's strength of military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service and policies toward National Guard and Reserve services. The list of Military Friendly Employers is determined via an annual, data-driven survey conducted by Victory Media, Inc.

Approximately 20 percent of Werner associates are former military. To attract and retain veterans, the Company instituted Werner Enterprises' Professional Truck Driver Apprenticeship Program that allows veterans to draw from their G.I. Bill during their first year of employment. In addition, Werner has a team of hiring specialists dedicated to assisting veterans with their benefits.

Werner Enterprises featured in Bloomberg News

Werner Enterprises was featured in a recent report covered by Bloomberg News. The article titled,"Trucking Industry Buoyed by Retailers with Fleets," discussed the increasing importance of dedicated-fleet services amid driver shortages and a healing economy.

Werner was mentioned among carriers with dedicated fleets that have gained benefits as retailers and grocers rely more on dedicated fleets to lock in capacity for shipments. This trend of dedicating a fleet of trucks to specific customers eliminates uncertainty that often plagues customers in times of tightened capacity. As a result, the demand for access to dedicated fleets has accelerated as retailers slowly rebound.

Per data from the Commerce Department, retail sales rose 1.1 percent in September after a 1.2 percent increase in August which is the best month-to-month increase since late in 2010.

Werner Enterprises observes Veteran’s Day

Honor Table at Werner Enterprises

On Friday, November 9, Werner Enterprises honored its veteran associates with a ceremony in the main lobby of their Omaha global headquarters. Werner President and COO Derek Leathers spoke at the event honoring the sacrifices made by the men and women serving in our military.

As part of the ceremony, Leathers explained the significance of the symbolic "table for one" tradition that honors the memory of all prisoners of war and those missing in action.

The honor table is our way of symbolizing the fact that members of our profession of arms are missing from our midst. They are commonly called POW/MIA. We call them Brothers and/or Sisters. They are unable to be with us today and so we remember them because of their incarceration.

  • The small round table represents our everlasting concern.
  • The table is set for one, symbolizing the frailty of one prisoner alone against his oppressors.
  • The white tablecloth symbolizes the purity of their intentions to respond to their country's call to arms.
  • The single red rose reminds us of the families and loved ones of our comrades- in-arms who keep the faith awaiting their return.
  • The red ribbon represents our admiration of their will and determination.
  • The black ribbon reminds of us of those who will not return.
  • The candle represents the light of hope that lives in our hearts and serves to light the way home from their captors and back to a grateful nation.
  • The Bible represents strength achieved from faith, helping to sustain those lost from our country founded as one nation under God.
  • The faded picture is a reminder to the families that they are loved and missed.
  • A slice of lemon is on the bread plate to remind us of their bitter fate.
  • The salt upon the bread plate is symbolic of the family's tears as they wait.
  • The glass is inverted because they cannot toast with us today but we hope they can tomorrow.
  • The chair is empty because they are not with us but we have hope of their return.

Remember, all of you who have served with them and called them comrades, who depended upon their might and aid and relied upon them. For surely, they have not forsaken you.

“Remember Our Fallen” exhibit visits Werner

Werner tractor still an American treasure

Werner truck at Smithsonian
Werner Enterprises’ 1984 Peterbilt 359 in Smithsonian

In a recent editorial in the Omaha World-Herald, author Mike Kelly mentioned that no matter where he goes in the U.S., he is accustomed to seeing many Werner trucks on the road. But while on a recent vacation to the east coast, he was surprised to see one making history in a world-renowned museum.

Did you know that Werner Enterprises is part of an exhibition at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.? A 1984 Peterbilt 359 model tractor and flatbed trailer are part of a permanent exhibit, “America on the Move”, that has been on display since November 19, 2003.

The exhibition is a multimedia educational experience that depicts the role that transportation has played in the nation’s development.  Visitors can enjoy the sights and sounds of transportation in the U.S. from 1876 to 1999.

Werner Driver experiences “We are Werner” moment

We have all heard the slogan, “We are Werner.” It is a motto that defines in three words the sense of teamwork, commitment and support that we all need to share at Werner. One driver, Curtis W., found that and more in what could have otherwise been a very difficult experience. We want to thank Curtis for sharing this experience with us. It is a reminder that each of us truly is Werner and that our actions do make an impact. If we treat each other with a sense of responsibility and urgency, it will be appreciated. As a result, we are better able to find success together. We are Werner.

Curtis’ letter in its entirety is posted below:

To whom it may concern,

I am writing this letter today to commend two very special and dedicated persons who went the extra mile to resolve an issue related to my truck. The two individuals I wish to recognize are Brian Barlow and Nancy Muehlmeier, who went above and beyond the usual call of duty to assist me in getting an issue resolved on my truck.

I was representing Werner at driver Stephen Hallin’s memorial service and hoped to get my truck worked on in a nearby Freightliner dealership.  The truck was disabled and the Freightliner technician had phoned me to assist him with some information. I did all I could being on the road and not with the truck.

When I returned to Freightliner in Salem, OR and checked further, the truck was still problematic and unable to be repaired. I had hoped the repair would be completed upon my return from the memorial service, but without the needed information this was now in doubt.

I have known Mr. Barlow for some time now and his respect for the drivers and willingness to make things happen is second to none. Even after we stopped working together on a regular basis, we have kept in contact and I was always told, “lf you need my help, don’t hesitate to contact me.” I needed his help now and sent him an email with details of the malady and he went to work.

Armed with the pertinent information and aware of what I was involved in to honor the memory of Mr. Hallin, Brian went to work. Foregoing his lunch, he contacted a colleague in the breakdown department, namely the aforementioned Nancy Muehlmeier. Keeping in mind it was now nearly midnight central time on a Friday night, I was encouraged but not overly optimistic. I know the troubles after-hours staff often face, making sure freight is handled so I thought that issues such as the one I describe here would easily be shuffled towards the bottom of the stack.

That Brian and Nancy not only took it upon themselves to prioritize this problem, but included me in the process, even having a conference call to insure all were on the same page was nothing short of exemplary. Before I went to sleep to be fresh the next day for the memorial, I felt confident that the situation had been handled and a solution had been found. That these two loyal Werner employees stepped up to the plate to solve an issue and quite likely save the company money, was nothing short of inspirational. After hearing the testimonials given during the service for Mr. Hallin, it struck me that at least a solid recognition of the selfless actions of these two people was in order.

We are nothing without a team effort and when working together as a team, positive results occur. If each of us put as much into our positions as Brian and Nancy did, things would run far better for us all. Please do all you are able to at least let these two valuable assets to Werner know that they indeed are WERNER.

Thank you,
Curtis W.
