Teamwork is one of our core philosophies. We strive to be our best today and even better tomorrow.



At Lily, we believe people are our greatest asset.  We understand that without our dedicated, talented employees, we would not be the successful company we are today.  Lily strives to treat every employee as a member of our “family”; with respect, honesty and fairness.  We’re proud to say that we have one of the highest retention rates in the industry and we believe that is a direct result of our operating philosophies.

The Lily Transportation LLC Philosophy

The two statements of principles provided below are posted at every operation that we manage for our clients and are regularly reviewed by our management, drivers and administrators.

We “walk the talk” and, because of our adherence to these values, we provide exceptional performance, and, therefore, we have been successful. However, in all our success, we must stay humble.

We must remember that yes, we work hard, smart and with great diligence, but our success is not ours alone, it comes by the grace of God. 

–  John Simourian II, Chairman
