The most beautiful landfill in America—the Fillmore County Waste Management facility

In light of the "contributions" Mr. Clarence Werner and Werner Enterprises have bestowed to the State of Nebraska and humanity, WernerScrews hereby decrees the Fillmore County Landfill christened: Mt. Werner.

This opprobrium conferred solemnly to Mr. Clarence Werner on Friday, October 24, 2003 A.D. outside of Seward, Nebraska in recognition for future generations to bethink Mr. Werner’s infamy.

Since 1998, fifty-one drivers and motorists have lost their lives after Werner Enterprises introduced computerized dispatch and monitoring. To date, Werner Enterprises has not addressed any safety issues.

Three ways Werner Enterprises resembles a landfill:


Full of methane

Leeches into the soil--contaminating water and soil for future generations

Werner’s statement:
“…intended to meet the real-world needs of carriers, including cargo security and cost savings per load.” Greg Werner

Werner Enterprises will never buy any technology that would increase highway safety or the safety of their drivers.

Nothing new at Werner. The Screw-O-Matic will get reprogrammed, but will still be working at 100% screwing efficiency.

Business Wire Report

"Werner Enterprises has completed software reprogramming for the new hours of service rules of its proprietary Paperless Log System (PLS) that is used to (1) monitor driver hours of service on a real-time basis and (2) preplan the assignment of shipments to drivers based on their available driving hours."

Werner Enterprises would not reprogram their software because of driver safety issues. Federal compliance is the issue.

No major changes over at Werner.

"Since the annual driver turnover rate in the truckload industry exceeds 100% per year, the competitive market would likely require carriers to raise the rate of pay per mile to drivers if miles decline."

Sure. Business Wire must think C.L. Werner is a fool. Werner will open a terminal in India, train drivers in India and have the neophytes move to the U.S. Werner will always follow the cheapest path.

What of Werner driver/highway motorist safety? That issue was not brought up in this article. Werner's revenue is far more important.
