[ February 2, 2021   //   ]

Cargo Transporters, Inc., an asset-based regional and national carrier, is pleased to announce it received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. Cargo Transporters joins the ranks of 767 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.
“We are proud to have earned a top rating for the third year in a row,” says John Pope, Chairman of Cargo Transporters. “Being a diverse employer is very important to us. We want every team member to feel not only welcome, but that they are an integral part of our success.”
The results of the 2021 CEI showcase how 1,142 U.S.-based companies are not only promoting LGBTQ-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but also for the 57% of CEI-rated companies with global operations who are helping advance the cause of LGBTQ inclusion in workplaces abroad. Cargo Transporters’ efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria earned a 100 percent ranking and the designation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
The CEI rates employers providing these crucial protections to over 18 million U.S. workers and an additional 17 million abroad. Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine’s 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazine’s top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses.
