2015 HIT Freight Agency Award - GTN Cincinnati and GlobalTranz
HONESTY – INTEGRITY – TRUST
The HIT Award

The HIT Award is annually presented to the Top GlobalTranz Freight Agency that strives for success while maintaining the principles set forth by one of GlobalTranz very first and most revered Freight Agents, Paul Walsulko.

The Freight industry is fast-paced and can be difficult to navigate.

– When a Freight Agency takes the time to pay attention to what is most important

– When they value core customer service

– When they are honest in their pursuit of success

– When they have integrity in business, as well as in life

– When they enable trust in their team and their customers

An Agency’s success is a byproduct of their day-to-day operations, not the driving force.

GlobalTranz is ‘Freight Driven by Technology’ and we are proud to honor GTN Cincinnati, a Freight Agency ‘Driven by Honesty, Integrity, and Trust.’

“Globaltranz has been a great partner for the last 8 years. The Excellent rates and top of the line software tools they have equipped us with give us an enormous advantage over our customers,” states Joe Buringrud, President of GTN Cincinnati.

GTN Cincinnati started in 2008 – they employ a team of 5 CSRs (customer service representatives) and 2 sales associates.  They have plans for expansion and hope to open an Indianapolis office in the fall of 2016. As an Agency, GTN Cincinnati hopes to pass $7.5 million in sales in this year.

“We love to party. Our team is led by Dan Wysong, Justin Bonomini, and Mindy St. John.  Lisa Tom and Angie Wright also play a valuable role in our success and our top salesman is Nick Gregg,” says Joe Buringrud. “As an office we enjoy starting the morning off with some intense karate drills to get the day started on the right foot. When we aren’t servicing the freight industry we try and help local law enforcement on unsolved crimes around the country.”

The playful tone of Joe’s quotes embodies the environment that the GTN Cincinnati team thrives in.  They work hard and play hard, and they always do so as a team.

“My team is the main reason for our continued growth and success and without them there would be a lot of unsolved crimes and loose criminals roaming the streets of Cincinnati!” 

“Joe provides a recipe for success with a laid back atmosphere.  Really enjoy being part of the GTN Cincy team.” – Dan Wysong, VP of Operations

When asked about being named the HIT Award Winner, Joe stated, “Winning this award means a great deal to us, Paul was a great person; I only had the opportunity to speak with him a couple of times but just in those brief interactions I could tell what kind of person he was and I am extremely honored to have known him.”

Take a look at the amazing time we had this year in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona at the GlobalTranz Freight Agent Convention 2016!

#GTZcon2016

Keynote speaker, Saia President and CEO Richard D. O’Dell, set the tone for the entire weekend.

Freight Agents enjoyed some ‘Fun in the Sun’ at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. They lounged by the pool, hit the golf course, and even caught some Cactus League spring training baseball at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

Areas of coverage were claims, invoice resolution, TL, enterprise sales and much more.  Carrier Awards as well as individual Freight Agency Awards were presented.

Enjoy the video and share in the experience!

Anthony Hernandez | Claims Department Lead
I was born and raised in Arizona and briefly attended Arizona State University as a Nursing major, but left school to pursue full time ministry as a youth pastor. It was my experience in ministry that helped develop my operational and interpersonal skills, helping to refine my gifts and build a desire to pursue excellence in all I do. I have been in the freight industry since November 2013, the entire time with GlobalTranz. I started out as a broker, working to match Carrier capacity with customer needs, but eventually moved into the Claims Department in March 2014. I eventually became Lead of the department in December 2014, which is the position I have held since that time. It is my faith in God that pushes me to work hard, knowing that my work is part of the way I worship. I consider Monday my favorite day of the week, because I sincerely enjoy working at GlobalTranz. Our team has been recording data on our claims every week, so that we are able to track our rate of success and trends, helping us to determine where our strengths and weaknesses are, while also looking to make the Claims process more automated and efficient. The primary role of our team is to communicate effectively with our partner Carriers to retain financial recovery on behalf of our customers. Ultimately, I hope to go back to school, gain more experience with all GTZ departments, and assist in advancing operational efficiency and organization for GlobalTranz as a whole, so that our agents are supported well and customers are satisfied.
