Gaining a competitive advantage requires constant attention to detail.

Thought Partnership

You're probably inundated with solutions providers telling you how their method is the silver bullet that will save you more money in less time. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. The companies I've worked with require agility; they want a blend of automation and availability; things that fit tightly around their specific needs so they can stay focused on their core business.

Gaining a competitive advantage means paying constant attention to detail. I'm ready to work with your team to identify, plan, and implement comprehensive, custom strategies tailored to your exact specifications. My team is built to support an array of internal initiatives from sourcing, to contract negotiation, to reporting and optimization of the carrier services you utilize.

What Others Are Saying

A lot has changed about the shipping landscape over the last decade. One constant, however, has been the trust hundreds of companies have put in Brandon to help them mitigate ever-rising costs and navigate complex and often uncertain shipping climates.
