Our Management Team
It may surprise you to know that most of our team members were hired from outside the logistics industry. That’s not by accident.
We hire based on strength, not skill. We look for people who love details and are great at follow up and communication. Each candidate is tested to determine an accurate map of an individual's natural instincts. We hire based on what people do naturally, and what they enjoy. It marries people with jobs they love. We all know the results of people that love their job.
Our expert logistics team is a group of reformed social workers, mortgage brokers, executive assistants, pharmacist technicians and retail managers for whom customer service logistics is both an aptitude and a wild passion.
