National Day of the Cowboy hits home for The Shippers Group, as our 121-year-old company was built upon a foundation of the Cowboy code of Ethics. A cowboy represents the best of the American workforce, having the characteristics of optimism, courage, and hard work. Characteristics which our team proudly displays each and every day. With a culture founded on honesty, integrity, and a can-do attitude, we are more than a leading Third-Party Logistics provider - we are true modern-day Cowboys and Cowgirls.
As Darby Strickland best said, “Simply follow Cowboy Ethics – no right from wrong – follow the Golden Rule and be willing to work hard. Combined, the above will take you a long way to becoming a success.”
– Darby Stickland, Former Owner, Shippers Warehouse, 1937 - 2009
