Columbian Logistics Wears Red To Promote Heart Health

Columbian Logistics Network Wear Red Day 2016

Columbian Logistics Network Employees Wear Red to promote Heart Health !

On February 5th, Columbian Logistics Network employees participated in the American Heart Association (AHA) ‘Wear Red Day’, an event to raise awareness and funds to fight women’s heart disease. Columbian Logistics employees at all locations, including Columbian Distribution Services, Kentwood Campus, Grand Rapids DC, and Grandville DC, sported red to help support the cause, part of a month long program to promote Heart Health.

According the the AHA, almost 34% of American women die from heart disease. ‘Wear Red Day’ is an effort to call attention to and educate people about the disease. The AHA provides resources to help make the changes in diet, activity and lifestyle to live a heart healthy life.

Legendary Customer Service Award – Q4 Winners

Columbian Logistics Network is driven by its core values, and one of the most important values is ‘Legendary Customer Service’, defined as “Doing whatever it takes to ensure that our customers’ needs are anticipated and met.”  Columbian Logistics Network promotes this ethic with a nomination process through which customers and employees can recognize individuals who have gone above and beyond in their daily work. The Legendary Customer Service Award is open to all employees who consistently deliver ideal service and results, providing responsible, flexible, and cost effective solutions to meet customer needs. Each quarter, a team selects two nominees to receive the Legendary Customer Service Award, one an ‘external’ or customer nominated employee, and the other an ‘internal’ nominee recommended for service to his or her  fellow employees.

Columbian Logistics is pleased to announce the Legendary Customer Service Award winners for the fourth quarter of 2015 are Derek Kent & Candy Starr! Congratulations Derek and Candy, for providing the Legendary Customer Service that moves our customers ahead!
