Service Through Leadership
At Delta Southern we endeavor to do more than just haul freight. As a short line railroad operator we serve in areas where family, community and hard work are a way of life. We value the relationships we’ve built and our employees maintain active involvement in community-based social organizations and programs. Whether safety education or volunteer and service projects, we work and invest in the area that we and our employees call home. Our company’s leadership is founded on four basic tenets – responsibility, accountability, integrity and authenticity. We accomplish these tenets through our four pillars.
The Four Pillars
Through these four pillars we continuously evaluate team competencies and rail operations management so that we may better serve our valued customers.
We see change as opportunity, not a threat.
We see tomorrow’s challenges as an invitation to find solutions.
We set a positive example and lead change through personal involvement.
We show leadership through our actions, and promote open, constructive and informative communication with all our stakeholders.
Our Core Values & Promise
Our core business is short line rail transportation rail access and railcar storage solutions.
It is because of this we offer an eye for both up- and downstream integration, and can afford customers a seamless and comprehensive transportation network. We do this by fostering strategic alliances with integrators and service providers, through actively monitoring our business network to expand new market opportunities.
We uphold the values of a family-oriented company.
We are customer-focused, safety-first and hold ourselves to the highest measure of integrity, reliability and respect for all people with whom we deal. Internal and external relationships are based on mutual trust, respect and open communication. We have a clear leadership philosophy and support the development of key competences of our team members. Responsibility and accountability are the binding obligation and duty for every employee. Continuous improvement is a requisite management principal and a deeply rooted company value.
It is our mission to deliver the most efficient and sustainable rail solutions for safe and secure product delivery.
Fundamental to our success is a professional team dedicated to a positive culture that values employee empowerment, our company’s sustainability initiatives and a corporate responsibility to our customers and the communities we serve.
