OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Werner Enterprises (Nasdaq: WERN), a premier transportation and logistics provider, proudly received the 2023 American Trucking Association’s (ATA) Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Change Leader Award.

Established in 2022, this award highlights ATA members who make a commitment to a culture of acceptance and belonging for their employees.
