“You’re only as good as the people that you surround yourself with” – Jim Weatherly
In 2009, Jim Weatherly and Marc Collins were running a highly successful freight forwarding company delivering strong results with revenues between six and seven Million dollars a year. It was at this point in time that both men realized a changing landscape in the industry and sought out a solution to become a ‘single-source’ platform for their customers. They realized a need and an opportunity to bring the proper tools to their freight forwarding base and company arsenal.
“The technology of CommandCenter and CarrierRate have provided us the platform to take our business and our offering to the next level,” states Jim Weatherly, President. Since instituting the technology offerings of GlobalTranz, Global Freight Source not only has been able to offer new services to existing clientele, but they have also been able to add an entirely new base of business. “All of our business through our GlobalTranz partnership is new business,” states Marc Collins, EVP of Sales and Marketing. Both men state that the implementation was able to, “breathe new life,” into their already successful business.
For the 2014 year, with their GlobalTranz partnership alone, Global Freight Source was able to finish strong with revenues of 35+ Million. “You’re only as good as the people that you surround yourself with,” say Jim Weatherly. Marc Collins adds, “It has taken a lot of hard work, and it has been fun and exciting. We have really enjoyed growing our business and being able to hire excellent additions to our team.” They credit GlobalTranz with assisting in this growth and creating the opportunity.
