Carrier Sales Representative

They thrive in an ever-changing environment, taking a proactive approach in learning the pricing and capacity fluctuations in the truckload shipping market.

  • Getting the best deal because you aren’t afraid to negotiate.
  • Putting out fires, because problem solving fuels your passion.
