Swing Transport Employee Bulletin – Profit Sharing

Profit Sharing Contribution

nesteggThose of you that have met the requirements may have received a letter from Mass Mutual.  It contains information regarding your Profit Sharing and Swing Transport’s contribution.

Although profits for 2013 were not what we hoped, the Board of Directors elected to contribute $50,000 to the Plan.

Our goal each year is to contribute to Profit Sharing but that has not always been possible.

We ask that each of you be safe in all your endeavors.  Insurance claims (both liability and worker’s comp) impede our ability to contribute to Profit Sharing.  Without adequate profits our efforts to increase your retirement income is hamstrung.

Limit idling and unnecessary miles.  Increased fuel prices have placed a burden on all trucking companies.

We are expecting a much better 2014.  If we are successful all of us will benefit.

Also, our 401k is a great way to save for your future and your contribution is tax deferred.

If you have any questions regarding your Profit Sharing or 401k please direct them to Linda Burkhart at our Salisbury location.

The Only Way

The Swing Way

Swing Transport is pleased to announce our latest dedicated operation.  Lumberton, NC will be our fifth North Carolina facility .  We will deliver corrugated boxes throughout the Southeast.  Initially, ten tractors will be domiciled at this site. Everything is on track for a November start-up.

We thank all of our employees for their part in acquiring this new customer location.  As you know, we have no salesmen employed by Swing Transport.  Because of the excellent service provided by all of our employees, one has never been necessary.  The best sales tool we have is our reputation.  We must protect and defend it.

Like a healthy child, a healthy company will grow.  To remain strong, we must first grow from within.  We do so by stressing integrity, honesty and respect in all dealings with our fellow employees, customers, vendors and the communities in which we operate.
