Werner's Five T's

Trucks, Trailers, Talent, Terminals AND TECHNOLOGY
Werner Enterprises has committed to substantial investments into our trucks, trailers, talent, terminals, and technology for the betterment of our drivers and their experience. 

5 Ts for the Professional Driver Experience

In 2018, Werner identified five areas that most affect a professional driver’s experience and committed to investing millions of dollars in those key areas. Trucks, Trailers, Talent, Terminals and Technology make up Werner’s 5Ts initiative. Werner recognizes that the professional driver faces many challenges while on the road. Our heavy investment into the 5Ts is based on one very simple concept; respect for the professional driver. You want more than a paycheck and we want your career to be rewarding in every aspect.
