Pros: an environment where everyday holds a different challenge
When I start my shift I first plan our outbound operations. I am responsible for how many trailers I am sending across the country, how many drivers I need to get this accomplish, and providing time sensitive service. I have a conference call everyday at 18:00 to discuss how many trailers I am receiving inbound and how many are going outbound. I also dispatch local drivers to pick up and deliver freight and handle customer care. I am in charge of a staff of 25 employees, 2 dispatchers, & 2 supervisors. i have learned how to make challenging decisions, how to manage a staff of 50 employees, & how to be successful manager. I answer directly to my Vice President. I overall have a good relationship with everyone I work with and know how to get people to follow me not because I am there boss but they can trust my overall decisions. I find A new challenge in everyday and essentially like to keep busy.
