What does it mean to work with a DBE certified trucking company?
DBE certified companies are able to yield much more effective cost saving strategies due to diversity spending requirements: by having the ability to utilize various federal and state tax incentives, tax breaks and potential rebates. This is a great incentive for other businesses to do work with DBE certified companies.
Working with a DBE certified company is also encouraging the growth and longevity of companies within a specific community. Inclusivity in the business world makes a great investment not only for the financial incentives, but also for the relationship building and the intangibles that come with doing work with a DBE certified company.
