Operation K.A.V.I.C. (Keller Assists Veterans In Crisis) is in its 3rd year of assisting veterans, reservists, national guardsmen, and their surviving spouses in Defiance County. What started out as simply using money collected from employee jeans days at Keller Logistics Group to buy gift cards for the veterans office to distribute to local veterans during the holidays has expanded into an annual fund that provides financial assistance to local veterans to fill the gaps in their veteran benefits.

On January 30th, 2018, we at Keller Trucking were informed that we are one of 20 for-hire trucking companies in the US or Canada that can bear the honorable distinction of Best Fleets to Drive For! This annual award is produced by CarriersEdge, in partnership with Truckload Carriers Association.
The benefit this award brings to our driver recruiting efforts is probably obvious, but the benefits to our trucking customers are not so self-explanatory. So here are my 6 reasons why customers benefit from using fleets that are the best to drive for.
OHIO COMPANY MARKS MILESTONE OF DRIVING FORWARD SINCE INCORPORATING IN 1978
2018, Defiance, OH - Keller Trucking, an affiliate of Keller Logistics Group, Inc., is proud to announce its fortieth year of progressively moving forward in the trucking industry. Since its incorporation in 1978, Keller Trucking has expanded its fleet from 6-7 trucks to 150 trucks and 450 trailers.
Delphos, OH – Hydrofresh HPP, an affiliate of Keller Logistics Group, is constructing a $10 million pasteurization plant at 1571 Gressel Drive in Delphos that uses innovative high-pressure processing (HPP) technology.
Unlike traditional pasteurization method which uses heat prior to packaging to eliminate micro bacteria that are present in food, Hydrofresh HPP will be using High-Pressure Processing. HPP is a cold pasteurization technique by which products already sealed in their final packaging are introduced into a vessel and subjected to a high level of isostatic pressure, up to 87,000 psi, transmitted by water. This process produces a 5-log reduction in salmonella, e coli, and listeria (bacteria that causes food borne illness) while preserving the color, texture, nutrients, and flavor of the product. Because the food is treated in its final packaging, the chance for recontamination is virtually non-existent.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! No matter when you celebrate, or how many times you get to celebrate with family and friends, we all have our traditions.
For some, it's getting together with family, watching the Lions and then eating your feelings by devouring all the fixin's that make up your holiday spread. For others, you may get together the day after with your Framily and talk about the family drama that happened the day before. Whatever your traditions are, I hope they are everything you hope for this year.

Operation K.A.V.I.C. is an acronym for Keller Assists Veterans In Crisis. For those that may not be familiar with Operation K.A.V.I.C., it is a fund that was created to prevent our local military and veteran personnel (including armed forces veterans, reservists, national guardsmen and surviving spouses) from enduring financial hardship.
The idea behind it began in the middle of 2015 as our CEO, Bryan Keller, was admiring the other local, large companies’ corporate responsibility initiatives. He decided it was time that Keller Logistics Group and its affiliates choose a philanthropy and aim to provide the level of support the larger companies in our area continue to provide for their non-profit organizations.
