Family is who we are. Not necessarily by blood but by choice. We choose to care for one another. We choose to communicate openly, honestly and to act with humility towards one another because that’s what our family needs. Everyone in the UWT family has specific responsibilities and is held accountable for them. But most of all, we hold each other accountable to have fun. We rejoice with each other in our successes and pick each other up with we’re down. We apply these same principles to our customers and adopt them into our family. That’s what makes us different and what allows us be a leader in the world of supply chain companies.
Excellence is what we strive to be. We see our work not as a job but as a calling by God. Because it’s a calling we must do our very best regardless of the circumstances. It’s why we go beyond ordinary standards. We embrace change when it’s needed and when it benefits others; even if that change is painful for us. Excellence doesn’t measure against what others are doing but with what we are capable of doing with our talents and opportunities. It doesn’t settle. It does more with less. It strives to be the best even if there are no external forces pushing it in that direction. Simply put, it amazes with service…even if it isn’t asked for.
Growth is what we do. We want to be better today than we were yesterday. We realize that genuine growth doesn’t take place overnight but by doing the little things well every day. We give more than we get. We seek to help others grow all the while knowing our success is measured by how much we help others. When our entire family does this everyone experiences growth—including ourselves. We don’t give to get but we do get when we give. What do we get? Growth.
