Curtis Garrett - New VP of LTL
Synchrogistics a NC based freight management provider, is pleased to announce the hiring of Curtis Garrett to lead its less-than-truckload (LTL) services operation
Mr. Garrett has over a decade of experience in various key capacities including front line service roles, terminal operations, freight audit, pricing and freight profitability. He most recently worked in yield management and expedited pricing at Old Dominion Freight Lines. In his role, he led key pricing negotiations for both National and field accounts. He was also responsible for managing the yield on roughly $180 million worth of business, which included streamlining more efficient operational procedures and building profitable customer specific pricing structures.
In his new position as Vice President of LTL, Mr. Garrett is tasked with building and expanding Synchrogistics' LTL business. Mr. Garrett will oversee operations, pricing, carrier relations and technology investments as they relate to the LTL operation. He has implemented strategic initiatives which will continue to align Synchrogistics as a top industry service provider as well as a partnership driven, carrier friendly third party logistics and freight management firm.
"We are excited to have somebody with Curtis' experience come onboard," said Bill Jackson, President of Synchrogistics. "His experience working directly on the docks as a rebill / W&I specialist for Old Dominion combined with his more recent high level pricing experience makes him a perfect fit for the proactive customer service culture at Synchrogistics. He will help our clients avoid rebills and have pricing that fits their needs, and he will also help us be the best possible partner for our carrier base."
