While in Seaford on January 29, Senator Tom Carper, accompanied by Seaford’s Mayor David Genshaw, visited with the leadership team of Trinity Logistics to discuss Trinity’s growth and position in the community and the transportation industry. With the recent launch of our new five-year business plan, our leaders are positioning the team for aggressive strategic growth not only in revenue, but also in size.
“When I am not in Washington, I spend as much time as I can visiting constituents and businesses up and down the state to find out how they’re doing, and what I can be doing to help them,” said U.S. Sen. Tom Carper. “I was pleased to visit Trinity Logistics and see how the company has grown since I last visited over a year ago. This Sussex County company has great leadership and a great team that will guide it well as it continues to expand and add more good-paying jobs to the western side of our state.”
With the Senator’s concerns about the transportation infrastructure in the United States, there was also a discussion surrounding industry challenges and concerns. One of these is the need for a national hiring standard for motor carriers. According to the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), of which Trinity Logistics is a member, the national hiring standard will reinforce the safety rating and licensing processes already established, help small business across America, and improve the overall safety of the transportation industry.
“The leadership here at Trinity really appreciates that we have a Senator who lends an ear and a voice to the concerns of the citizens and businesses of Sussex County,” said Jeff Banning, President and CEO of Trinity Logistics. “As one of the top employers in Western Sussex County, we take our responsibility to partner with the City of Seaford and our legislators to shape the policies that affect our industry and our community very seriously.”
