CoreTrans Named Senate Small Business of the Week


SOMERSET, KY, May 27, 2022 /PRSearchEngine/ — In an official statement made by U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), CoreTrans has been named a Senate Small Business of the Week.  In addition to announcing the award, the Senator also makes note of the regional trucking and supply chain management team’s company culture and their commitment to the community.  

Family owned and operated for over 20 years, CoreTrans is proud to be recognized by Dr. Rand Paul and the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.  In his statement, the Kentucky Senator praised the supply chain management and regional trucking company; specifically, for the vital role the team played during the numerous burdens and hardships presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.  In a global economy where supply chain management grew tangled and shipping schedules were drastically prolonged, consumer demand was at an all-time high.  Locally, CoreTrans has done their part to pick up the pieces in the Somerset, KY area because they know all too well that ‘time is money.’  Senator Rand Paul values that mindset, as well as the trucking team’s admirable commitment to local commerce.

The Kentucky Senator also praised CoreTrans and owner Brian Whitaker’s charitable spirit.  Last year, Whitaker and his team did their part to support Western Kentucky neighborhoods who sadly lost so much during the devastation of the December tornados.  CoreTrans is no stranger to charity and giving back to the community, Senator Rand Paul explains in his statement.  The regional trucking company has also been known to support Somerset Community College (SCC).  Dr. Paul also took time in his statement to praise CoreTrans for numerous awards received over the years.
