Weekend Carrier Capacity Representative



Chicago, IL, USA
Posted on Friday, June 30, 2023

About the Role:
As a Weekend Carrier Capacity Representative , you will focus on securing the right carrier at the right price to deliver a customer’s goods - for Saturday and Sunday freight. You will work with our unique carrier network and industry-first technology to efficiently manage customer’s short-haul transportation needs. You will also negotiate and develop your own portfolio of close carrier relationships to help them grow and optimize their fleet. Additional opportunities are generated through industry referrals, internal communications and prospecting. As your relationships and success grow, so will your pay. This role combines inside sales, account management, supply chain knowledge and operational excellence to meet the shipping needs of our customers.

About Torch:
We believe there’s a better way to do logistics – using better data, better technology, and better tools. Torch is redefining the way freight moves, as the world’s first short-haul brokerage. Rapidly growing e-commerce, warehouse networks, and urban populations are causing a rise in shorter lengths of haul. Did you know the average length of haul has been reduced by more than 27% over the past few years? And that at least 70% of all truckload moves are now less than 550 miles? The need for better logistics around short-haul is growing rapidly.

We’re building the only digital platform focused exclusively on short-haul lanes (50-550 miles). This complicated and disparate problem will require fundamentally better technology and data collection. Here at Torch we're building those solutions. By injecting our technology into the highest cost centers, Torch wildly reduces operating costs, and by focusing on data, we help short-haul freight move better. We’re based in Chicago and backed by leading supply chain and enterprise technology investors. We are a fast-paced, high-energy start-up building solutions to change the future of shipping. If you are looking for a place that will bring excitement and purpose to your work, and give you hands-on experience building something big, then we invite you to come join us!
