Our Mission Statement

Exceeding customer supply chain expectations by delivering professional and customized solutions in a timely and cost-effective manner.


Ranger3PL was founded in 1995 as a brick-and-mortar warehousing company in Seymour, IN. In the first decade of operation, Ranger3PL developed a strong presence within Southern Indiana’s manufacturing community. In 2007, Ranger3PL was acquired by Kocolene Development Corporation (KDC). With the backing of KDC’s 80+ years in business, Ranger transformed into a dominant, asset-based third party logistics provider. The company worked to leverage knowledgeable people, best-practice processes and industry technology to provide customers with services previously unavailable in the local market.

Today, Ranger3PL’s success can be seen in the solutions provided to the various industries we serve.

Employee Owned and Operated

In 2009, Ranger and KDC as a whole, became an ESOP (employee-owned company). In the ESOP, all employees have an ownership stake in the company, making this not only a great benefit to our team, but also a performance motivator that keeps us striving for excellence day in and day out.

Company Philosophies

Ranger’s success has been built, in great part, on the hard work of our team. Through the years, our commitment to providing outstanding customer service has been unmatched in the industry. Below are our seven business philosophies. These core principles are expectations for every member of our team and are the foundation for how Ranger operates today.

The Golden Rule

Treat others like you would like to be treated. We extend this philosophy to everyone alike, whether it be customers, suppliers, carriers, or fellow team members.

Team Concept

We feel strongly toward the close-knit team concept of helping each other. We can truly accomplish more working together than we can on our own. There is no “I” in team!

51% Philosophy

You often hear the term “50-50”, or “meeting someone halfway.” At Ranger3PL we strive to go that extra mile for our people. We strive for more than 50%.


At Ranger3PL, we strive to always act with and treat others with professionalism. Our parent company, Kocolene, has been in business since 1938, and they have created goodwill and an outstanding reputation by treating our customers like fine crystal in our hands. All of our team members are respectful of that history and the efforts of our predecessors.


Communication has been described as “the chain of understanding that integrates an organization from top to bottom, bottom to top, and from side to side.” With that “chain of understanding” throughout an integrated organization, corporate excellence is well within grasp.

Commission vs. Omission

Use all resources available to you, analyze all the information, and then act. We expect and want decision makers.


An attitude is a way of feeling or acting toward a person, thing or situation. According to radio and television personality Art Linkletter, “Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.”
