When Mike joined our BAT family this past fall we knew instantly he would fit in just right. He jumped on board, started learning all about BAT, our industry, and how he can have a positive impact for us, our customers, and our carriers. Mike continually shows us that he wants to learn, wants to grow, and wants to have just as much fun as the next guy! Mike is a perfect example of a team player — he knows what it takes to be a successful part of his family unit and we are so happy to have him as a part of our BAT unit too!
During Spirit Week, our BAT family worked hard on a donation drive for a couple organizations in our area. Through employee contributions and a match from BAT, $2608.16 was raised for Mission 22 and 211 pillowcases were brought in for New Visions Homeless Services. Both of these organizations do some amazing things in our community and we were so happy to give a little back to them. We were able to present the check and pillow cases at our anniversary open house with the Council Bluffs Chamber of Commerce.
In February BAT celebrated 12 years!! We kicked it off with Spirit Week which included a different theme each day. As they do every year, our BATs brought their A game with all their creative costumes and really made the week an awesome time.
Steve, better known as Coenen, has been with BAT since 2013. He is our Operations Team Leader and a real asset to our organization. Coenen is a hard worker, always looking out for our carriers & customers, and never lets a day go by without making sure we all have a laugh at some point thanks to his great sense of humor.
Valentine’s Day brought a fun contest to BAT as everyone made their own creative boxes! We had an internal and external vote . . . and the winners were . . . Anthony with the external vote and Mike with the internal vote!

Working with Garden Gate Ministries in McKinney, Texas, BAT Logistics has made a donation to the Tower of Hope Children’s Foundation in Soroti District, Uganda. Tower of Hope’s main objective is to provide food, shelter, education, medical care, as well as spiritual and emotional support to needy orphans and widows in their area. Through his contacts, BAT Logistics Vice President Jarrod Marinello was able to learn of the organization’s need and felt it was the perfect sponsorship opportunity.
