    The Transplace Think Tank has been striving to identify new ways to use corporate intelligence and put actionable data to work to support the decisions made for our customers each and every day. For example, when a number of storms hit in the fall of 2017, the Think Tank members created a dashboard that allowed customers full visibility of all affected shipments. This allowed teams to work together to make strategic decisions to overcome any shipper obstacles and put a plan into action to work around any routes that were disrupted by the storms.

    As Transplace Operations Sr. Vice President, part of my responsibilities include working with our Professional Development Program (PDP) group, which I whole-heartedly believe is a differentiator for our company.

    The PDP is a 2-3 year rotational program that allows participants to take on various transportation and operational roles. My goal is to help new hires fresh out of school grow into leadership roles at Transplace. They achieve this through active participation in cross-functional special projects, by working with different groups within the company and through the development of direct relationships with members of the executive team.
