I was very fortunate to begin my logistics career at ABF Freight. The Jacksonville office VP was a positive presence onsite. I still remember her saying, "When you're ripe, you rot, and when you're green, you grow." Meaning the team members should always strive to keep learning and bettering ourselves. Mistakes are expected as long as we grow from them.
My direct manager always took time to explain operational info and personally help team members with customer issues, which allowed us to understand how to handle those in the future. Her knowledge of LTL tariffs, Rules tariffs, and Accessorials was instrumental in building my career into an operational one after the ABF Jacksonville office closed.
