The Werner Blue Brigade
Werner's Blue Brigade has made it its mission to spread Werner's compassion for our communities one opportunity at a time.
Who We Are
The brigade is comprised of passionate and driven associates with a strong desire to assist those in need, make a difference in the lives of others and support our local communities.
The Blue Brigade offers willing and caring associates the opportunity to get involved and stay connected with volunteer opportunities. It also serves as a resource for local and national nonprofit organizations in need of assistance.
How We Started
The Blue Brigade was launched in Omaha and Mexico City in January 2012. In its first year, both sites either met or surpassed their goals — Omaha brigade members hosted 18 events and Mexico City hosted two.
In 2013, the brigade expanded its outreach to Werner terminals throughout the United States and a second office in Mexico. That same year, Omaha hosted 29 events, with Atlanta, Dallas, Lakeland, Mexico City, Monterrey and Phoenix all also making a difference in their own communities.
Since its birth, the Blue Brigade has grown in both its commitment to give back and the strength of its force. The Blue Brigade has grown from 280 members in 2012 to 415 members in 2014.
Today, Blue Brigade volunteers are located at Werner's global headquarters in Omaha, Neb., terminals throughout the United States and two sites in Mexico.
