Integrity | Innovation | Excellence | Safety. These are the Core Values of The Shippers Group. Our company was built around these values and to this day they still act as the foundational strength of our strategies. Today we are highlighting our commitment to Safety.
No industry has gone without challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Transportation Industry has been no exception. During these unprecedented times, Truck Drivers received the recognition they deserved for risking their health to keep our supply chains moving. Their role has been instrumental in getting essential goods to the consumers. The question remains, though, how has this pandemic affected the transportation industry and what’s still to come?
National Hire a Veteran Day encourages employers to consider veterans in their employment strategies and to fill their open positions. This day provides awareness and serves as a platform to show that our veterans are qualified and trained and looking for jobs within the civilian workforce.
“Town Hall meetings continue albeit under our new normal conditions” spoke Rob Doyle, President after his Town Hall meetings last week with our Dallas team. “Great conversations with front line personnel on how we can continually improve here at TSG and truly be the employer of choice.”
The Shippers Group is excited to announce the recent hire of Alex Whiteley in our Corporate Office as Industrial Engineer.
With a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from Texas A&M University-Commerce, Alex was brought on to enhance productivity, maximize throughput, and ensure workplace safety. Her previous experience includes positions as a Manufacturing Data Engineer and Sr. Support and Operational Efficiencies Administrator. Alex holds a Six Sigma Green Belt certification and has led Lean Six Sigma projects to reduce variances by 65%. She also coordinated a yearlong project to implement Lean Six Sigma methodologies in the replenishment process, including cost analysis labor considerations and storage optimization.
Alex resides just outside the Dallas area with her loving husband and their two pet hedgehogs. During her free time, she enjoys gardening and embroidery. Alex also has a passion for volunteering and participates in a few different weekend events throughout the year – the largest of which is set in Dallas with over 30,000 people in attendance.
President Rob Doyle stated, “We are excited to have Alex join our team as the role she has taken aligns with our efforts to stay focused on quality and continuous improvement. Alex will be instrumental in keeping us true to our core values as the various projects she will be working on relate to a few of our core values in specific: safety, excellence, and innovation.”
Eager to get to meet the rest of the team, Alex stated, “I am very excited to be working with everyone at The Shippers Group.” Welcome to TSG, Alex, we are so excited to have you on board!

Although COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our daily lives, fundamentals of nourishing the world have not changed. As consumers began to panic buy at the onset of shelter-in-place orders, the significance of logistics and supply chain were elevated. Today people have a much better understanding of the importance of protecting the food supply chain. Let’s take a look at what’s changed, the impact and what the future holds for food manufacturers and their 3PL warehousing partners.
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the federal government issued multiple executive orders and emergency notices, most of which refer to “essential workers.” The President also issued the Coronavirus Guidance for America, declaring certain operations, such as food supply, a critical infrastructure industry in which we had a social responsibility to maintain our normal work schedule.
