The Elite Fleet: Average Is for Other People

Werner Enterprises, Inc. was founded in 1956 and has evolved from a one-truck operation to the full-service premier transportation and logistics company it is today, with coverage throughout North America, Asia, Europe, South America, Africa and Australia.

Werner is among the five largest truckload carriers in the United States. We invest in the best at Werner, providing our professional drivers with more home time, competitive pay and the newest equipment in the industry. Our philosophy, unlike many of our competitors, is to stress quality over quantity, and this principle is evident in every aspect of our company.

In 1998, Werner was the first carrier to receive FMCSA approval to implement electronic logging devices. Werner is committed to conservation and sustainability. Since 2007, Werner has saved more than 170 million gallons of fuel and reduced the company’s carbon footprint by more than 1.9 million tons.

Werner also developed the first military apprenticeship program in the industry approved by the Department of Labor and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Werner is a proud supporter of military veterans and veteran spouses, who comprise approximately 20 percent of the company’s workforce.

Beyond the Assets

Werner maintains its global headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska, and maintains offices in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China and Australia. Werner’s comprehensive solutions are supported by leading-edge technology, experienced professionals and an extensive global network.

Werner’s diversified portfolio of transportation services includes one-way van, dedicated, cross border Mexico and Canada, expedited, temperature controlled, freight management, brokerage, intermodal, flatbed, ocean and air, and global freight forwarding.

Werner Logistics is a comprehensive Top 20 logistics provider and key component of the company’s portfolio of transportation services solutions. Werner Logistics generates over $400 million of revenues annually with operations in over 150 countries.

Werner is committed to reinvesting millions in our 5T’s initiative: trucks, trailers, talent, terminals and technology. While the average age of trucks in the industry is over five years, Werner’s average truck age is 1.7. A newer fleet means less maintenance downtime and more productive miles.

With more than 60 years in business, Werner Enterprises maintains a strong financial condition with low debt. Werner has consistently profitable financial results, a solid financial position and is publicly traded on NASDAQ under the symbol WERN.
