At Easley Transportation, there are five core values that we focus on every single day: Responsibility, Integrity, Intensity, Safety, and Excellence. To help you better understand who we are as a company, allow us to guide you into a deeper understanding of these principles. First, let’s look at responsibility.
We will take ownership of the freight that we transport and the decisions that we make to ensure our customers’ success.
“With great power comes great responsibility.”
No one could say it better than Uncle Ben. And while we might not have web-slinging powers like your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, we do understand the burden that comes along with our “power.”
Superhero movie quotes aside, why have we chosen responsibility as one of our chief values? There are plenty of more trendy ideologies that we could emphasize. However, as an asset-based logistics provider, we feel that it’s crucial for us to recognize the importance of each and every decision we make.
On a daily basis, our customers entrust us with their freight and, ultimately, with their success. Whether your cargo is moving within our warehouse, around town, or on a linehaul between Memphis and Chicago, we treat it as if it were our own.
It’s easy to make the mistake of assuming that responsibility only takes place after something bad (or good) happens. At Easley, we take responsibility on the front-end. This involves a high level of clear communication with our customers to ensure the job gets done right the first time.
Though transportation is not a glamorous line of work, we recognize the tremendous weight of our actions. We proactively treat every shipment as if someone’s life depends on it – because sometimes, it does! A misrouted PPE shipment could result in avoidable sickness and even death. Conversely, if that same shipment is handled responsibly, lives can be saved.
Responsibility might not be the coolest or flashiest company principle. But, we believe it’s an absolute necessity in order for us to provide the level of service that our customers deserve.
