Helped customers find their missing freight, whether it was lost or damaged. Communication with both shipper and customer was extremely important to me trying to find a happy medium for when freight would be located and delivered and what they would need to do if freight was not located. Heavy phone and computer with this position but I loved every minute of it. Assistant drivers in authorizations for delivering freight, assisted shippers with damaged freight being returned, Cut bills, Labeled freight to be moved, Kept up with all company policies and procedures for all positions including cash balance, obtaining monies from customers and assisting Sales Reps with making sure that the customer was always happy with their timely deliveries and returns.
Very heavy computer and phone, fax, printers, email. High volumn and thoroughly enjoyable job. I loved every minute of it. Driving 120 miles a day for the last six months ran its toll on my vehicle.

In my free time, I enjoy playing with my Shepard Husky and crafting. A huge crochet fan, can usually be found making all kinds of projects for others and home. Originally from NY, still have some laughable moments with talking and getting to know new people. It really is true, Variety IS the spice of life!
