LSW Chauffeured Transportation (LSW) recently was certified by the National Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. ® (NMSDC®) as a bona fide minority owned and operated business. Certification is awarded on the basis of submitted documentation and a personal interview.

NMSDC, one of the leading business membership organizations in the U.S., links corporate America to certified minority owned businesses for the purpose of expanding opportunities. A minority-owned business is a for-profit enterprise, regardless of size, physically located in the United States or its trust territories, which is owned, operated and controlled by minority group members, namely United States citizens who are Asian, Black, Hispanic, or Native American. LSW will be listed in the databases of the New York and New Jersey Minority Supplier Development Council databases and the NMSDC Minority Business Information Systems.

LSW was also recently certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), one of the nation's leading advocates of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America's corporations. LSW achieved WBENC Certification by qualifying as a women-owned, operated and controlled business through completing a formal documentation and site visit process.
