Werner Enterprises (No. 10 in the CCJ Top 250), founded by C.L. Werner in 1956, is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2016.
To kick off the year-long celebration, Werner hosted events at its terminal locations and dedicated sites Monday, Jan. 4.
Werner also introduced a new decal package that will be on all of the company’s new trucks and trailers. The updated branding will be applied to new trucks and new white trailers as they are added to the fleet. Werner predicts its truck age to average less than 1.5 years by the end of 2016.
“I wanted to build a business that offered quality service and delivered value to our customers, all while creating career opportunities,” said C.L. Werner, founder, chairman and CEO. “That’s still my passion today, and I couldn’t be more pleased with where we are headed.”
