our commitments to you

The global logistics business is a tough one, but your business is even tougher. You have hundreds of potential logistics vendors to use – but we don’t want to be one of them. We want to be your partner, and partners make commitments.

Every day, our team makes four commitments to our partners:

1 We Show Up
When it’s hard, when it’s easy, when we’ve done well, and when we’ve fallen short…we show up.
2 We Do What It Takes
Our clients aren’t customers – they’re partners; that means we don’t stop at ‘we tried.’
3 We Look Ahead
Our partners trust us to see the runway ahead, not just the tarmac we’ve traveled, in the global supply chain.
4 We Shoot Straight
Corporate buzzwords, doublespeak, and mealy-mouthed explanations don’t cut it for us, or for our partners.

NEVER THE EASIEST

Always the best

At NorthPoint Logistics, we embrace the impact that our team members have. Whether on our client partners, our colleagues, or our community, our team members are emissaries for the culture of values-focused professionalism that we live by.

We also know how impactful an amazing culture is – after all, we’re just down the hall from Kansas City’s Best Place to Work for the last 9 years. We’re committed to joining our parent company on that mountaintop – and to get there, we need the best on our journey.

Our hiring process is data-driven, detail-focused, and difficult – and we love it that way. If you’re the kind of person who’s invigorated by that challenge, let’s talk – because we’re always looking for the next great NorthPointer.
