We’re purposeful,
yet practical.

We’re purposeful, yet practical.

SAFETY

Safety is more than just a
core value. It’s the true
core of our company.

We believe wholeheartedly that safety is non-negotiable. Nothing—and we mean nothing— is more important to us, and we are uncompromising in our commitment to the health, safety, and security of our employees, drivers, partners, clients, community, and environment.

Our Safety MEASURES

Empowerment

Each of our employees pledges a safety commitment when they begin working for us. We then empower each and every employee to call a “safety time out,” whenever and wherever they feel it’s needed, allowing each individual to proactively identify, control, and help eliminate risk. We believe in accountability and responsibility, and we give each employee the training and tools to take ownership in safety outcomes.

Safety Training

Safety training is a crucial part of The GTI Group’s commitment to safety. We provide ongoing training on topics such as road and office safety, compliance, health, and business ethics.

Technology

We believe in the power of technology to support a well-defined, intentional safety culture. Not only does technology help us track safety trends and critical data that we can weaponize in our favor—using tools such as GPS, outward-facing event recorders and a driver performance management platform (Idelic)— but it also complements and enhances our behavior-based safety program, giving us greater insight into our performance and helping us identify new training opportunities and build a best-in-class team.

Enterprise-wide Emergency Action Plan

As our organization grows and our world becomes increasingly interconnected, so does our enterprise-wide emergency action plan, which includes tools, processes, and communications to support emergency response, employee and community safety, disaster recovery and business continuity. Our plan outlines how we resume disrupted operations and respond to crises in our surrounding communities, enabling us to coordinate operations and allocations to those around us in need.

Safety is more than just a core value. It’s the true core of our company.

SAFETY

It’s more than being green.
It’s a values-driven
approach to ESG.

We’re committed to doing the right thing in every aspect of our business. As an organization, The GTI Group has resolved to pursue a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive future, using our shared values to guide our approach to social responsibility, environmental, and governance (ESG) initiatives. In practical terms, this means we seek to hire a diverse workforce, reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and operate transparently—all while giving back to the communities we serve.

It’s more than being green. It’s a values-driven approach to ESG.

Our Safety MEASURES

Transport of Green Freight

All our operating units have experience in transporting high-value, green equipment, such as batteries for solar panels and components – both small and oversize – for wind farms. We value the trust our clients’ place in safely delivering this often delicate and time-sensitive freight. 

Energy-Efficient Fleet

By deploying trucks that are lighter in weight, we can haul heavier payloads, which means fewer trucks are required—reducing overall emissions. Our freight- brokerage team also has tried and true processes for planning logistics, scheduling loads, and matching carefully screened carriers with cargo. By using capacity already existing in the marketplace, we help reduce the number of empty trucks on the roads. It’s a win/win for efficiency and sustainability.

Community-Driven Sustainability Efforts

At The GTI Group, we often partner with our clients, local communities, ports, law enforcement, and local/regional government agencies to reduce our emissions. In fact, we worked with a number of organizations to use the Port Freeport's heavy-lift corridor, which has resulted in a 40% reduction in the number of trucks required, and a reduction of CO2 by 2.1 million pounds annually, as well as an average reduction of 4.5 tons of NOx per year.

Investments in Green Technology

The GTI Group invests in green technologies to support its clients’ sustainability initiatives. In 2022, we purchased our first three new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) trucks. A CNG truck reduces “well-to-wheel” (WTW) greenhouse gas emissions from 5-16% according to various studies. We’ve taken it a step further by ensuring that fueling comes from Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) sources. The three CNG trucks cover approximately 500,000 miles per year across Texas, saving 10 tons of CO2 per year compared to diesel trucks. 

Many of our facilities, including our Houston shop, also feature LED lights and other energy savings systems. Some call it green. We call it smart. 

We’re different and diverse.
In every possible way.

At The GTI Group, we believe that our strategic diversity, equity,

and inclusion (DE&I) plan helps us in every area of our

business. We believe in fostering an inclusive environment

that takes into consideration a wide variety of individual

characteristics, values, beliefs, experiences, backgrounds,

preferences, and behaviors. It’s by fostering a diversity of

thought, training, hiring, developing, and educating that we

can truly live up to our truest organizational potential.

We’re different and diverse. In every possible way.

Jetco recently hosted its annual safety meeting on Saturday, April 13th, at our Aldine Yard in Houston, Texas. With a focus on fostering a culture of safety and camaraderie, the event was a resounding success, bringing together Jetco team members and their families for a day filled with informative sessions, interactive activities, and fun-filled fellowship.

The day kicked off with a comprehensive conversation about the state of Jetco, where we reflected on our achievements and outlined our strategic plans for the upcoming year. It was an opportunity for everyone to align their efforts and contribute to the continued success and growth of our company.

The highlight of the event was our safety focused presentations. It gave our team members the opportunity to enhance their understanding of safety protocols and best practices, ensuring that safety remains our top priority in all aspects of our operations.

But it wasn't all business at the Jetco annual safety meeting. After taking care of important matters, attendees and their families were treated to a delicious catered lunch, accompanied by music, games, and activities for kids of all ages. It was a chance for everyone to unwind, socialize, and enjoy quality time with their loved ones in a relaxed and festive atmosphere.

In the spirit of giving back to the community, Jetco also hosted a food drive during the event. Team members were encouraged to bring canned goods, with each donation earning them raffle tickets for a chance to win exciting prizes. From a Big Screen Television to gift cards and an RTIC cooler, the raffle prizes added an extra element of excitement and motivation to contribute to a worthy cause.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all Jetco team members and their families who attended the annual safety meeting. Your participation and commitment to safety are instrumental in driving our success and ensuring the well-being of everyone in our Jetco family.

As we look ahead, let's continue to prioritize safety, collaboration, and community involvement in everything we do. Together, we will build a brighter and safer future for Jetco and the communities we serve.
