At Saia, success comes down to taking care of the people who matter most – our customers, our employees and our shareholders. The rest will take care of itself.

We are guided by a three-part mission that recognizes both our customers' needs as well as the needs of our employees. Based in part on our proprietary CSI® (Customer Service Indicators) program, it is a mission that is truly unique in the industry.

'Provide best-in-class service – as defined by our customers – through quality processes in an environment that respects employees, advocates safety, recognizes excellence, and builds shareholder value.'
Corporate Responsibility

A company is nothing more than a collection of individuals
with a shared purpose. The ethics of the company cannot help but mirror the
morals of the people involved. As a company, Saia embraces our responsibility
to the environment, those with whom we work, and the communities that sustain


for Our Environment

We were the first non-bulk LTL carrier in the U.S. to earn
RC14001 certification through the American Chemistry Council's (ACC)
Responsible Care
® Program. Among other things, the rigorous
certification reflects Saia's commitment to product stewardship, distribution,
community awareness, emergency response, and pollution prevention. In addition,
several Saia facilities have been certified ISO 9001:2008, the industry
standard for a systematic approach to quality management.


Health and Wellness

At a time when other carriers are switching to healthcare
plans with higher deductibles and co-pays, Saia has gone in the other
direction. Our employees' healthcare premiums have not increased in three
years. Through initiatives such as Saia's aggressive corporate wellness program
that includes a health risk assessment and biometric screening, we are reducing
the cost of healthcare without sacrificing the health and well-being of our


a Safe Environment

By cultivating an environment that promotes physical safety
as well as professional success, Saia ensures that our customers get our very
best every day. Safety starts with each employee understanding the
indispensable role he or she plays in our shared success. It demands attention
to detail – on the dock and on the road – and a willingness to be absolutely
vigilant regarding actions or conditions that could result in a workplace
accident. At Saia, our safety record stands on its own; built by caring
individuals who see safety as the responsibility of everyone.
