What is diversity in logistics?

Diversity in Logistics (DIL) is one of several inclusion programs here at OTR Solutions. DIL is a resource group that supports diversity, equity, and inclusion within our workforce, clients, and industry partners.

Founded in 2018, DIL has brought employees together through several internal initiatives and events, including networking events, internal educational spotlights, client outreach and our mentorship program. The mentorship program pairs new hires with our veteran employees to accelerate the professional development of underrepresented employees. This is achieved by providing mentees with guidance, advice, and feedback from mentors with more experience than themselves.

DIL supports the surrounding community through volunteer efforts and various community outreach opportunities. We have supported various diversity focused initiatives, including client non-profit organizations and local businesses owned or operated by underrepresented groups.
