100 years of service

Written by: Gary Wonning

UPS has the best accident-free safe driving record of any trucking company in the United States, and the Indiana District had the best safe driving record in UPS. That particular night, eight of the top ten seniority drivers who had acquired twenty-five years or more seniority from the Versailles center were present to receive an award for driving twenty-five or more  accident-free years.

But it goes beyond that, The Indiana District was thought of by many in the company as the best district in the country in all areas of performance. When the center managers from Indiana attend the management training school, they are held to a higher standard and often admired by managers from other states and districts because of the performance of the state in general. They are given the responsibility to continue and maintain the high standards of excellence the district had achieved.

Versailles Center was first or near the top in many areas other than safe driving. Their dedication to service, reliability, following up on problems, putting the customer first, following the dress codes and many other areas lead many to believe Versailles Center, located in rural southeastern Indiana as one of the finest centers in the company.

Most of the book centers on my personal feelings and experiences, however, what I saw and experienced could be the experiences of anyone who worked there.

This is our story.
