A substantial focus has been placed on our 5Ts initiative. As part of these efforts, we introduced “Sustainability” as a core component of our 5Ts strategy, which includes Trucks, Trailers, Talent, Terminals and Technology. Our 5Ts strategy represents our commitment of resources to remain at the forefront of our industry. While the average age of trucks in the industry is over five years, Werner’s average truck age is two years. A newer fleet means less maintenance downtime and more on-time delivery. The 5Ts initiative is designed to maintain Werner’s standard of best-in-class well into the future. Committed to conservation and sustainability, we have saved more than 307 million gallons of fuel and reduced the company’s carbon footprint by more than 3.4 million tons since 2007.

In Fall 2020, Werner announced their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) program. While ESG concepts have long been woven into the fabric of Werner’s history, these initiatives were developed to better communicate Werner’s ESG progress to associates, customers, shareholders, suppliers and the general public, as well as identifying new areas of focus for further improvement. Werner’s ESG initiatives include sharing with its stakeholders the impactful progress Werner has already achieved and its future specific milestone goals. In addition to providing resources to support these future ESG efforts, Werner will produce regular progress reports to ensure it is accountable for progress going forward. Werner commits to being transparent by updating all of its stakeholders on its ESG journey by publishing an inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Report in 2021.

Werner also developed the first truck driver apprenticeship program in the industry that was approved by the Department of Labor and the Department of Veterans Affairs. We are a proud supporter of military veterans and veteran spouses, who comprise approximately 20% of the company’s workforce.
