Werner Enterprises Unveils Wall Of Honor For Professional Drivers

Werner Enterprises (NASDAQ: WERN), a premier transportation and logistics provider, held a special presentation to honor its professional drivers at the Company’s annual picnic June 2 at Werner Park, home of the AAA minor league baseball team – the Omaha Storm Chasers. With more than 700 associates and their families in attendance, Gary Werner, chairman, and Derek Leathers, president and chief operating officer of Werner Enterprises, unveiled the new Werner Wall of Honor.

The Honor Wall, which was created and built internally by Werner Enterprises associates, recognizes the Company’s professional drivers who have achieved one million or more safe driving miles. Werner Enterprises has 1,249 one million milers, 142 two million milers, 11 three million milers and one five million miler, Charley Endorf. The more than 1,400 names are etched onto plaques on the wall, which is split into two sections, each standing more than eight feet tall by five-and-a-half feet wide.

“Although I didn’t drive a company truck to the same extent as my father, C.L. Werner – who was the Company’s first driver – the experience I did obtain through driving gave me a greater understanding and appreciation of the commitment of drivers,” said Gary Werner. “Without the commitment of all of our drivers, both past and present, Werner Enterprises wouldn’t be the safe and stable company we are today. Without them, we wouldn’t be here.”

In addition to the Werner Honor Wall presentation, the picnic event at Werner Park included a Werner Truck Roadeo, an event where drivers compete against one another in a skills exhibition; food, games and activities; an Omaha Storm Chasers baseball game; and a post-game fireworks show.

Werner Enterprises, Inc. was founded in 1956 and is a premier transportation and logistics company, with coverage throughout North America, Asia, Europe, South America, Africa and Australia.
