Freight Brokerage a career of interacting with great people all day long and some nights. It's playing matchmaker where merchandise is the currency. Skidded or floor loaded? Will it fill a 53 Van, food grade, of course? Or will 26 foot straight truck with a lift-gate be the requirement?
I represent freight. You accommodate capacity. Is it a fit? Would you like to see the Midwest again? Or is Florida your lane?
Good to see you. We do business with many many carriers. Many like Hartt are repeat vendors. It's always pleasant to see a familiar name on the road. It warms my heart when I think of the great service we have afforded our customers, together.
I booked a load for Saturday 7AM pickup. The driver is sleeping in New Jersey... He will wake, drive, pickup and drive back to Jersey. A known carrier, but still I'm nervous. Breathe. I can't miss this pickup. Breathe.
I have never been a great vacationer. Work is never off the plate. But after wasting this last vacation essentially working, and then pile on the ever present stresses of realtime work, I realize that shutting down is required. A complete reset. It's needed and totally required. Lesson learned.
