E-Circles (Express Circles) - A small group of associates who share the same problems or concerns. This group is
striving to improve their work area through teamwork, using quality control (QC) methods and problem-solving techniques.
We as a company believe that they are the experts in their job and can best make suggestions to improve their work area.
We value their contributions and new ideas and welcome their participation. The E-Circle members volunteer to be on a
team and consist of both operations and administration departments.
Midwest Express Group (East Liberty, OH), South East Express (Timmonsville, SC), and New South Express (Lincoln, AL)
sent their winning teams to compete against each other in February 2008 in Ohio. Our sister company, Simcoe Part
Services also participated in our United States competition. The winner was the NSE Innovators who solved the problem
of excess forklift damage through training and awareness. The Innovators had the opportunity to travel to our parent
company, Honda Logistics Inc. and present their project. All of our teams have made significant contributions to the
success of Midwest Express Group and are to be commended!
Midwest Express has kicked off another year of E-Circle activity and can wait to see what improvements our associates
will make again this year.
