Administrative Professionals Day is celebrated each year on April 21st with the purpose of shedding light on the devoted and valued work of Administrative Professionals. Administrative roles are incredibly diverse and these professionals often go above and beyond their regular duties.
On this special day, we would like to give recognition and a huge thanks to our Office Managers, who not only ensure our offices run smoothly, but who also manage our successful teams of Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) and Shipping Clerks.

In conjunction with the giving spirit of the holidays, The Shippers Group participated in the Salvation Army and Angel Tree programs this year, as well as the Marine Toys for Tots program—all of which have been a part of our “Give Back” initiative for a few years. The Shippers Group implemented our Give Back program as a way to say thank you and show our support by participating in events and making donations to the organizations working to make our world a better place.
