Safety Culture

Safety stands as an unwavering cornerstone within the transportation and logistics industry. It plays a pivotal role in ensuring the well-being of personnel and the motoring public, safeguarding valuable cargo, and maintaining the integrity of operations. With a web of interconnected processes spanning land, air, and sea, the industry’s complex dynamics underscore the imperative of upholding stringent safety measures at every juncture.

With The Bennett Family of Companies, Safety Is Priority One.

Safety Is Priority One: The Safety Culture Of The Bennett Family of Companies

Safety has long been a core value of the Bennett Family of Companies, a reflection of the heart of the owner and her passion for people. In 2017, the company deemed there was value in branding that core value, and the “Safety Is Priority One” commitment was born. 

In 2021, we recognized the need to answer the next logical question, “What does the Safety Is Priority One commitment actually look like to us and to those in the marketplace?” and we did so. Inspired by the concept of utilizing the four stars in our logo to do so, we now have four pillars of our safety culture: prevention, accountability, communication, and empowerment. Bennett employees, drivers, contractors, and service providers are provided with these expected cultural norms from day one. They represent and reinforce a standard of excellence in safe productivity across all entities within the Bennett Family of Companies.

Our “Safety Is Priority One” commitment is reflected throughout our operations and decision-making processes and can be seen in many different ways. It is seen in ensuring all equipment is in safe and compliant working order and in efforts to review relevant telematics data and act on it. It is seen in our load planning and ensuring our drivers have every opportunity to get the rest required to safely operate. It is seen in our drivers going above and beyond to ensure cargo is loaded and secured properly. And also their stubbornness in not leaving until they are satisfied it is safe to do so.

It is seen in emergency drills and response plans, the integration of leading edge technology, and monthly all-calls hosted by company leaders. It is seen in efforts to ensure only qualified, experienced drivers are onboarded and in the vendor selection evaluation process. In the collaboration with our customers, carriers, and other stakeholders, ensuring safety measures are communicated and upheld throughout the supply chain.

And it is seen in the open and honest conversations between operations and safety regarding performance metrics, the identification of risks and potential mitigation strategies. It is even seen in our analysis of safety data and incident reporting to identify trends and areas for improvement, and in the determinations of affective and meaningful corrective actions. This is a glimpse of what this culture is all about.


We partner with leading edge technology providers to enhance safety performance throughout our operations.

Truckers Against Trafficking

Bennett Family of Companies is proud to partner with Truckers Against Trafficking to empower our workforce to take action and save lives. We do so by offering all associates in our family of companies a specialized training to recognize and report human trafficking.  

Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) exists to educate, equip, empower, and mobilize members of the trucking, bus, and energy industries to combat human trafficking and modern day slavery. TAT recognizes that members of the transportation and energy industries are invaluable in the fight against this heinous crime. As the eyes and ears of our nation’s highways, truckers are in a unique position to make a difference and close loopholes to traffickers who seek to exploit our transportation system for their personal gain. Truckers Against Trafficking is raising up a mobile army of transportation professionals to discover and disrupt human trafficking networks by assisting law enforcement. They learn to recognize and report  human trafficking, in order to aid in the recovery of victims and the arrest of their perpetrators. The good news is this program is effective. Through TAT’s work with corporate partners like Bennett, victims of sex trafficking are becoming survivors, and their exploiters are being arrested and prosecuted.
