For the past twenty- eight years I have been in the transportation field. My specialty has been driving but I have always been a part of management, negotiations, supply chain, and some logistics. Being in a truck is not just going up and down the road, but a learning process for you in shipping and logistics. I was chief negotiator for USW local union in Michigan. I am excited to work with people that need positive change and work ethics. A positive employee whom loves the job can help the company move forward and profit.
