As a truckload freight broker and specialist, Justin obtains and sells specialty freight quotes to customers. These freight quotes range from large volume to full truckload to guaranteed delivery services. Mr. Mack handles anything that is beyond the services of normal LTL Freight. Almost every job Justin has ever had has been customer service-oriented, which is a big part of what Justin provides to each and every one of his customers today. With every job Justin learned a new technique for working with customers and learned how to effectively communicate with them. Justin has a degree in Sales and Marketing from Rasmussen College. He is getting married to his fiancé in May of 2013, and they plan to purchase a house with his new wife. In his free time, Justin enjoys watching sports and spending time with his family and friends.”
Mr. Tamminem is responsible for volume and expedited freight quotes for our customers, trying to match up the least cost carrier and best service to fit their needs. Before coming to Cerasis almost five years ago, Brett worked part-time on the freight dock for Fore-Way Express while attending the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Having handled freight on a daily basis Brett has the great ability to "picture the freight" that our customers have today. He studied two years of pre-business at the University of Minnesota-Duluth and received a Transportation and Distribution Management Degree from Century College in White Bear Lake, MN. Brett resides in Inver Grove Hts, MN, with his wife, Carol, who has run a daycare out of their house for twenty-one years. Their daughter, Ericka, and son, Blake, keep the Tamminem's busy with their volleyball, softball, football, basketball, and baseball games. They all like to go camping, fishing, boating, hunting, and cheering for all the Minnesota sports teams.
Kate Hale is THE go-to gal for our customers when she is brokering truckload freight. Her passion is almost tangible as she speaks to her clients. Tirelessly, she finds carriers for our customers needing to ship full truck-load freight via 53' dry vans, refrigerated trucks, flatbeds, step-decks, and over-sized freight. Prior to coming to Cerasis, Mrs. Hale worked as a truckload broker at Kick Logistics brokering van and flatbed freight for five years. That job introduced her to the world of truckload brokerage and taught her the importance of anticipating customers’ needs and of following up on each shipment from beginning to end. Mrs. Hale obtained a Bachelor's degree with a double major in Business and Communications from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Kate lives in Fort Worth, Texas, with her husband and son. In her spare time Kate likes to play tennis and golf and watch her son play baseball.”
Linda is a part of the truckload freight broker team that secures the truckload capacity for Cerasis' customers when warranted, including dry van and flatbed transportation. Technically, although Linda is the newest in the Truckload and Volume Freight Specialist team, she has the most experience in transportation. Mrs. Newcomb worked for JC Penney for thirty-four years prior to coming to Cerasis. At JCP, the work involved various modes of transportation including LTL, TL, intermodal, and small package. Responsibilities include rate negotiations, capacity planning and execution, budget setting, and attainment. Her latter position included executing and ensuring the daily TL and intermodal pickups for all of JCP domestic suppliers. This experience has facilitated the current Cerasis position where we are providing the best TL service for Cerasis' customers. Linda attended and graduated with a degree in Marketing and Transportation from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, AR. Linda lives in Plano, Texas, with her husband. They have two grown children. Her husband and daughter enjoy jogging and running marathons, and her son enjoys cycling. Linda enjoys reading, jogging, vacationing almost anywhere, and get-togethers with family and friends.”
