All of this is achieved by having a robust Integrated Management System (IMS) which covers quality, environmental, health & safety and corporate social responsibility.

Ethics & Compliance

The TOTE Group has developed a Corporate Compliance Program for the entire collection of TOTE Group companies. The Compliance Program exists to ensure that the companies comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

An important component of the Compliance Program is the
Code of Ethical Business Conduct and a third-party Ethics Hotline
(1-800-270-7513)and website that enable employees and third parties to report  (either anonymously or not) their concerns without adverse consequences or retaliation for making a report.

Ethics & Compliance

TOTE has developed a Corporate Compliance Program for participation by all employees of TOTE and its subsidiaries. The Compliance Program is designed to assist employees in complying with the increasingly complex laws and regulations governing the industry as well as general business conduct. It is TOTE’s desire for this Compliance Program to aid in the identification and correction of any actual or perceived violations of any applicable laws, regulations, policies and procedures as well as Saltchuk’s Code of Ethical Business Conduct.

In addition, to further encourage reporting, Saltchuk has a third-party Hotline (1-800-270-7513) and website to which employees can report issues anonymously. Issues reported through this method must contain enough information for TOTE to conduct a thorough investigation of the matter reported. It is TOTE’s express policy that no adverse action or retaliation will be taken by TOTE against any employee due to the good faith reporting of a suspected violation or irregularity.

Our Leadership

Relationships are at the core of our leadership philosophy.

Integral to our mission is attracting and developing innovative industry leaders who can effectively implement TOTE’s long-term strategies while enhancing existing businesses and customer relationships.
