In 2016, Werner Enterprises is proud to celebrate our 60th anniversary. This year also marks 30 years since we went public on Nasdaq and 10 years since the launch of Werner Global Logistics.
Today, we will be celebrating these important milestones at our locations throughout the globe.
At all of our terminals, our professional drivers and associates will receive a free lunch and enjoy giveaways as a special thank you for all they do to keep America moving. In addition, trucks featuring our updated branding and new decal packages will be on display.
We are proud to announce that Werner is the official trucking company of the 75th Annual 2015 Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™.
“We are extremely excited and honored to take part in this long-standing iconic event,” said Werner President and Chief Operating Officer Derek Leathers. “As a transportation leader for nearly 60 years, we respect those who share our passion for the open road – whether traveling on two wheels or 18. ”
For the first time, Werner combined its annual company picnic with its concert at Werner Park July 25 to offer associates two great experiences in one day.
The events kicked off with the company picnic and plenty of activities including games, an Omaha Storm Chasers autograph session, raffle prizes and access to the Centris Family Fun Zone.
Then, the action turned to the ball diamond as the Omaha Storm Chasers faced off against the Colorado Springs Sky Sox to seal a 7-6 victory.
Chalco Recreation Area was swarming with blue dri-fit shirts on Saturday, June 13, as a large crowd of Werner associates arrived to participate in Werner’s first ever Fun Run.
The event kicked off with a friendly competition as Jim Kochenderfer, Jerry Mensinger, Jim Mullen, Jim Story and Michael Twigg competed in a half-mile race, with Twigg emerging as the winner. Associates “bet” on their favorite with raffle tickets for the chance to win a Fitbit, with all proceeds going to the ERF.
