Professional driving is a key role in the transportation industry, but it is only one part of the puzzle. Logistics is one of the most important fields in the transportation industry. From sales, to customer relationships, to driver relationships, to tracking trailers and trucks, a logistics career is something to consider for people who like to grind, win, and have a fast paced work day.
Below are the career paths one might choose when considering a logistics role. In a logistics career, you will play a critical role in ensuring the smooth and efficient transportation of goods across the country. You will work to plan and execute shipments, monitor deliveries, and resolve any issues that arise.
A successful Carrier Rep is a hard charging problem solver, who has an entrepreneurial spirit and is self-motivated to build business and make money. You will find new carriers while managing your existing carrier portfolio for Paper Transport customers, negotiate service and rates, and drive results on a daily basis. Outside-the-box thinkers who aren’t afraid of working hard to get results are who we want.
This is a fast-paced, high-energy role that you’ll make an impact on the North American supply chain every day. From your first day, you’ll learn to negotiate with carriers and start making decisions, and you will become a market maker for regional transportation markets. Colleagues will promote your accomplishments and lean on your expertise. You will be surrounded by a supportive team of peers and leaders that will support and mentor you through your development.
If you have a “make it happen” attitude and are eager to make a difference in a fast-growing business, we want to talk to you about joining the Paper Transport Commercial Sales team. As a Sales Exec, you will focus on developing strong relationships with carriers and aligning their needs with the needs of our customers.
Commercial Sales Executives help target and prospect new opportunities, understand the needs and successes in the marketplace, and focus on continuous improvement. Their goal is to close new accounts by onboarding customers who are interested in Paper Transport’s offerings.
As a Brokerage Account Manager, you’ll manage our current spot freight customers. This includes pricing and negotiating rates, managing service and expectations of awarded shipments, and finding growth opportunities with our customers. This fast-paced environment paired with a positive work culture is for someone who will celebrate the wins and exceed in an individual and team environment.
Account Managers manage appointments that will set flow for all spot truckload shipments, understand spot pricing dynamics, pricing tools, and market conditions, directly communicate regularly with aligned customers to negotiate rates and manage service expectations, and set strategy with our aligned customer base for volume and revenue growth.
