As far as mission statements go, it’s hard to beat that of the USS Enterprise: “To explore strange, new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before.”
Our mission at Easley Transportation is notably less ambitious than the one pursued by Captain Kirk and Commander Spock. However, that doesn’t mean that we aren’t excited by what we do. Though it lacks in extraterrestrial adventures, our mission statement gives us purpose and direction. Internally, it unifies us as we work toward a common goal. For our customers, it serves as assurance that your freight is in good hands.
Our mission is to create transportation solutions by placing the right people in the right place to ensure that customers’ time-critical shipments arrive at the right time. This isn’t just a sentence that we hang on the wall and post to our website – it’s an actionable mantra. Let’s unpack it and take a closer look at what it means to our customers and to our employees.
Our Greatest Advantage – People
Our company has valuable assets ranging from sprinter vans to tractor/trailers. But, no piece of equipment will ever be as valuable as our greatest differentiator – our people!
Without the right people, we could boast the greatest lineup of trucking equipment and yet be absolutely worthless to our customers. Ultimately, it’s the person behind the wheel that gets the job done, not the vehicle.
We take tremendous pride in the quality of our workforce. Our dynamic team of drivers, dock workers, and operational staff work tirelessly every day to see to it that customers’ needs are met.
The Power of Placement
We strive to place our employees in the right place – both operationally and organizationally. On a daily basis, our drivers are geographically in the right places to move your time-sensitive freight with diligence and efficiency.
On an organizational level, we strive to place people in the right place within the company. In other words, we find where employees excel and then place them in a position where they can be the most successful. No two trucking jobs are exactly alike, and it can take some trial and error to find what type of position a driver is most apt for. But, it yields results that our customers are satisfied with and a team that is excited about the work they do.
An Aptitude for Urgency
Our company is rooted in an understanding that your shipment is urgent and important. We have nearly 40 years of experience operating under tight timelines to get your time-sensitive freight where it needs to go.
“Easley has been a great and reliable partner, especially during tough projects.”
– Rodrigo | Kuehne + Nagel
The urgency that we approach your shipment with isn’t chaotic or haphazard. Rather, it’s a fine-tuned intensity that prioritizes safety and excellence. We are confident in our ability to balance speed and precision when transporting your freight.
More Than a Mission
When it’s all said and done, our mission statement doesn’t mean anything to you until we’ve proven it to be true. We’d love nothing more than the opportunity to do just that!
