16 Jul Dutch Maid Logistics: Building Structural Ethics Through Foundational Friendships
“The rise or fall, success or failure of your dreams is largely dependent on the association you build yourself around.” ― Israelmore Ayivor
At Dutch Maid we know that building a long term network is important to our ultimate success as an organization: We seek authentic relationships with both our clients and our drivers as we build a stable, symbiotic relationship. So, we are intentional about our associations and ethical alignments.
But we at Dutch Maid also know that our association with professional organizations helps to demonstrate and enforce our commitment to our values. Accordingly, we have aligned ourselves with several industry associations that embody our ethical and professional goals.
SmartWay: Trucking has come a long way in a few decades. Today, trucks are 6,000 percent more environmentally friendly than they were in the 1960’s. We’re proud to partner with the EPA and anyone that knows that we can still make a greater difference, as we seek to protect the environment. Our alignment with SmartWay highlights our commitment to this principle and our ongoing efforts to be good stewards of the planet.
Truckload Carriers Association: From insurance rates to Hours of Service, Dutch Maid knows that the transportation legal field is constantly changing– And we know how imperative it is to keep abreast of all current industry trends in laws. Membership with the Transportation Carriers Association gives our business insight into the legal ramifications of legislation impacting the trucking community.
Wreaths Across America: Wreaths Across America places pine wreaths on the graves of fallen veterans every Christmas. Their organization coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at more than 2,100 locations across the United States, at sea and abroad. As a company that deeply values and respects veterans for their service, we are privileged to contribute to an organization that honors the memory of those that gave their lives for their country.
American Trucking Association: With participation in the ATA, Dutch Maid is partnering with the largest and most comprehensive national trade association for the trucking industry. We know that trucking is a family and the ATA helps represent all of our needs in Washington D.C. As the ATA says, “It’s our job to ensure lawmakers understand the trucking industry and enact policies that support its future.”
Ohio Trucking Association: For Dutch Maid focusing specifically on local trucking business success is also a significant priority. Our membership in the Ohio Trucking Association strengthens our position as a company that wants our immediate community of drivers and more broadly citizens to succeed professionally. The OTA gives us access and insight into Ohio’s most prominent transportation needs, trends, and news.
At Dutch Maid we feel that as a company that values our ethical priorities and seeks to form partnerships with organizations that benefit the transportation industry, we’re very proud of the associations that we’ve aligned ourselves with. And we know that ultimately success is defined by intentionally building relationships with those that will support environmental, transportation industry, patriotic, and local needs with the highest moral standards.
