We take care of our employees by giving back to the communities in which they live by gathering a group of volunteers to clean up the road where we are located and pay $1 to wear jeans on Friday, then donate it to local organizations each holiday season. There are plenty of ways to get involved outside regular business hours.

When you join the Keller team there are many ways to make connections with the people you work with each day. Rock climbing, local volleyball league, and trivia night are just a few ways our employees establish and grow lasting friendships.

Keller Logistics Group company culture

A company’s culture affects everything – so, in many ways culture is the real bottom line. A company with a well-developed meaningful culture, easily out performs competitors with a less developed culture, where people are less involved and committed to success.

At Keller Logistics Group, we want to maintain a value system which serves as a guide for how we function in our daily work life. As with many aspects in business, you’re always striving to be better, be LEAN-er, grow and as an individual and a leader. It’s very similar to what Ralph Waldo Emmerson said, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” We are always on a path – or TRAIL – to becoming the best person we can be, the best co-worker we can, and the best business we can be.

Our defined corporate culture for Keller Logistics Group, which really strikes at the core of who we are, is defined by the acronmyn T.R.A.I.L.S.

Employee Testimonials

I started with Keller through their Logistics Development Program 5 years ago, providing me a great opportunity to expand my knowledge base and see what each area of logistics is really all about. Since then, I’ve been given countless opportunities to continue to learn and grow in our business and work my way up to my current role as Regional Operations Manager. I’ve had great leadership support throughout my career here and am thankful for all the amazing  people I’ve met and worked with along the way. It’s an exciting time in Warehousing and I can’t wait to see what the next 5 years brings!

I have been with Keller Trucking for over 10 years, it has been quite a ride.  We have more than doubled in size since I started and have no intentions of that growth slowing down in the future.  I began as an intern and have grown through 4 different positions in those 10 years to now Vice President of our Trucking Division.  With this significant growth and high level of focus on developing our people from the top down the career advancement opportunities at Keller are endless.

Jonathan Wolfrum

Vice President, Keller Trucking

My career with Keller began right after college. At that time I was working in Sales for Keller Freight Solutions – a fast-paced and dynamic position where I learned all about the transportation industry. After a time in Sales, I saw an opportunity in the scope of my degree – Human Resources. As I moved into our corporate company, Keller Logistics Group, I had the support of my manager and that continues today. With the opportunity for advancement, I have recently moved from HR Coordinator to my new role as HRIS and Benefits Administrator gaining a holistic view of the HR functions. There are many stories similar to mine where employees have moved throughout Keller into new roles, a unique characteristic of any company.
