We’re Driven by Our Values
We want Saltchuk companies to be the kind of place where we would all be proud for our children to work. We expect the employees at all of our companies to always be honest and ethical in the performance of their company’s business and to meet the highest standards of business behavior.
As a family business, we’re not driven by Wall Street, but by a desire to be the best in our industry. Not the biggest, but the best. We provide critical services to our communities, both metropolitan and remote, so for us, there is no other option than to reinvest in our companies and let our values drive our acquisition strategy.
Our companies, and approximately 6,000 employees, are aligned under common values of safety, reliability, and commitment. We share a single Code of Ethical Business Conduct (Spanish version), and our employees are encouraged to speak up to ensure our work environments adhere to the highest standards of ethics, integrity, and safety. Saltchuk has established a third-party Hotline (1-800-270-7513) and website for reporting any suspected activity that does not live up to our Code to ensure all voices are heard.
We have also established a Supplier Code of Conduct to help communicate our values and policies with consultants and other vendors that provide services to our corporate home office and make those suppliers aware of our hotline and other available resources to report any concerns that arise.
