Core Values

About Us

John, David and Calvin Ozier

 

FAMILY. EXCELLENCE. GROWTH.

These three words best characterize our company. We are family oriented which means we value all relationships and see everybody as uniquely gifted and responsible to use their gifts in a way that helps others. We hold each other accountable, we have fun, and we strive to be excellent at our work. Being excellent isn’t a feeling. It’s a calling to go beyond what is expected, to stretch the boundaries, and to do the best work. It’s a calling to grow and to reach our full potential. Our hope is that everyone who crosses our path will feel like part of our family, see the desire for excellence, and want to grow to reach their full potential.

 

 

Meet The UWT Staff


Calvin Ozier – Founder Calvin Ozier is a lifelong Memphian who graduated from Germantown High School and the University of Tennessee Knoxville. He spent twenty years as the owner of a light manufacturing company. His experience with this local retail business prepared him for a career in public and contract warehousing. Since purchasing United Warehouse and Terminal (now UWT Logistics) in 1996, Mr. Ozier has seen the business footprint grow from 350,000 sq ft to over one million sq ft. A past President and board member of the Southeastern Warehouse Association, Calvin has deep relationships in the logistics industry. Calvin and Brenda, his wife of 43 years, reside in Holly Springs, MS. They have three children and eleven grandchildren. They are actively involved at First Evangelical Church in Memphis and focus much of their time and resources on local organizations that develop local youth into healthy, responsible, community oriented citizens. Calvin is also actively involved in humanitarian and mission work in Peru.


John Ozier – President Loving and serving people is what John Ozier does best. Since 2000 John has been actively growing the UWT Logistics customer base. His passion to understand customers and grow with their ever-changing needs is one of the primary reasons UWT Logistics has become a leader in warehousing, transportation, and logistics consulting. John is actively involved in many leadership roles in the company and the community. John and his family focus much of their time and resources on global organizations such as The Forsaken Children, Young Life and several local non-profits committed to building stronger children, youth, and communities.


David Ozier – CFO David Ozier has held an active leadership role at UWT Logistics since 2003, serving first as the company’s Human Resources Manager before taking on the role of CFO in 2012. David’s expertise in human resource and finance have allowed UWT to lead in sustainable personnel management. The UWT plan for enabling employees at all levels to find meaningful work, develop professionally, and succeed in life has built a foundation for a solid company through customer and community service. David is actively involved in the Memphis community and has a focused interest in Advance Memphis, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering adults to become economically self-sufficient.


Jim Browder – COO In 1996 UWT Logistics was able to convince Jim Browder to join the executive team as Operations Manager. His previous role as Manager of Information Systems and Programing for the entire City of Memphis made Jim the ideal leader for this fast growing warehousing and transportation company. Jim oversees the execution of customer requirements and expectations across the entire UWT network of warehousing, transportation, repacking, and consulting. Jim is also a leader in conservation-based facility maintenance and in his support of state-of-the-art IT deployment to enhance the profitability of our customers.
