If you like fast-paced, competitive, and high-tech operations, then this is the place to be. It's a 3rd party logistics company where you don't need assets (e.g. trucks) to get freight moving. This is a Monday through Friday job, where we arrive at the office at 8 AM and leave by 5 PM, sometimes earlier, sometimes later, depending on the day. When I get there, I greet my fellow employees as I pass by each of them. Once we get set up on our designated work computers, we answer any pressing emails at that moment. If it's a Monday then we jump right into tracking pickups and deliveries that occurred over the weekend and move forward with our work for that day. On any given day, our team of 7 brokers receive on average of 50-100 loads to be worked on together. We each facilitate pickups and deliveries by carriers to have them for freight within 1 mile up to 3000 miles away. It gets stressful, because we have to negotiate rates with carriers in order to get the best price on this process.
Stable, consistent work, profitable company
Fast-paced, short lunches, stressful
