The road we take on the path to become great in the freight industry and take care of our families is not a steady and straight road. I know better than anyone because I’ve had to scrap and tug and pull for every opportunity when I got started. This business doesn’t favor the ones who rest on their laurels but instead rewards those who strive each day for greatness. I’m not talking about a glamorous, “name up in lights,” type of greatness. I’m talking about the great adventure that makes you behave like a pirate while you’re sitting behind your Polycom phone. The greatness that feeds people and gives us work at the early hours and keeps us busy through the night. America runs on truckers and logistics professionals fighting against the clock and doing what it takes to keep everyone happy and make their balance sheets look like they robbed a bank each month. That said I can’t put a number on how many times I’ve wished I had that agent or cross dock in my contacts list to call in a favor. Instead I ended up calling 100+ people off Google listings and bugging all my friends to give up an agent I can use. Crossdockbuddy.com is a website designed to help all the great agents that pulled out the cash to buy the assets and the warehouses and staff the people to help truckers and brokers get the job done. At the same time, if we all work together to put our trusted agents and crossdockers in one place, truckers and logistics pros will find a website like this to be invaluable. With that said I’ve created a site that allows all of us to contribute friends and agents that we know and trust and help spread the cash flow around. If its true what they say, that a rising tide lifts all boats, then that’s what we hope to accomplish for our beloved/hated freight industry. If you’re like me, you might be reading this late after hours and looking for help, my hope is that you find what you’re looking for here.
