As Chairwoman of the Kenco Board of Directors, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little more about our company.We are a family-owned, financially strong third-party logistics provider headquartered in Tennessee, with operations in 30 states and Canada. Celebrating our 70th year in the business, we take pride in our rich history and look to the future with confidence and excitement.
Our company has evolved greatly since being founded in 1950 to become one of the most respected in the 3PL industry. There have been many factors that have led to our success; as a family-owned and-governed business, we enjoy many advantages that public-owned companies do not have. At Kenco, we empower and encourage our associates to think and act differently, to be innovative with solutions,and to respond quickly to customer needs and supply chain trends.
However, the single most important factor in our past and future success is our people. We know that without the support of our associates who go above and beyond to serve and build relationships with our customers, we would not have grown into one of the top third-party solution companies in the country. I like to think that it is our culture of mutual respect that distinguishes Kenco from our peers in the workplace.
I encourage you to consider joining our Kenco family. Whether you are just starting in your career or looking for the next phase in your professional development, you will find Kenco to be an excellent place to learn, grow, and contribute to the critical work we do as a supply chain provider. We value good people and work and hope you will give us the opportunity to find a place for you here.
Every day, our people push our business forward. And it’s their passion that drives us. For 70 years, our dedicated workforce has been a cornerstone of our culture and an essential part of what makes Kenco so special.
That’s why — from the distribution floor to the board room — we are committed to inclusivity in our workforce, ensuring every one of our associates is empowered to have their voices heard.
Through our diverse backgrounds, we’re able to leverage every member of our staff to devise creative solutions to any on and off site problem — making Kenco a unified community where our people can grow together and make us stronger every day.
At Kenco, we want to empower our people with the tools, skills, and competencies to advance their career and support our operations. From onboarding to leadership development, Kenco fosters a culture invested in helping you develop the skills necessary to positively impact our associates, operations, and customers, including:
