Operations Manager

Simple Freight Solutions, Inc.

March 2015 - Present

I drive sales, operations, logistics, rate negotiations, purchasing, and customer service functions for this freight brokerage focused primarily on long-haul transportation of fruits and vegetables. I also optimize business performance through diligent logistics coordination, efficient dispatching, optimal rate negotiations, and market trend analysis. Additionally, I lead efforts to grow business by identifying new opportunities, developing solid relationships with prospective customers, and negotiating service contracts. I identify and leverage opportunities to improve processes across all areas of transportation logistics, book transportation services and negotiate freight rates with carriers from all major loading areas in North America. I service personal inbound business portfolio, and facilitate FTL and LTL truckloads including analyzing specific freight-hauling requirements, and source and select appropriate transportation carrier. I research and analyze performance of prospective carriers; approve invoices and ensure delivery of exemplary customer service; follow-up on and resolve customers claims, complaints, and issues.
