A Message from our Founder and CEO

When I started GlobalTranz in 2003 out of my bedroom, I set out to build the best freight brokerage in the country using technology that would make the process more efficient, and give individuals in our industry the opportunity to realize the most value for their skills. Now, in 2012, my vision has come true.  I am very passionate about GlobalTranz and the industry we all love.  Join us as a shipper or partner and let’s make it a better place together.
