Meet the Logistician!

Sarah Christensen – Client Success Advisor

How would you describe your current position to someone that doesn’t work in the transportation logistics industry?
I work as an account manager for multiple companies, I ensure excellent customer service and oversee the timely pickup and delivery of loads. I also maintain effective communication to address any issues that arise.

How did you end up working in logistics?
I was looking to get out of manufacturing and landed across this job on Indeed. I took a shot and they hired me!

How many years have you worked in logistics?
5 ½ years

What are some of your favorite things about working in logistics?
I like the relationships I develop with not only the customers, but the carriers as well.

What surprises do you encounter?
Everyday brings new surprises to work through, the way the team handles it together is key. 

Do you have any fun work stories you’d like to share?
Day to day we find ways to make each other laugh and learn more about each other. 

Do you have a favorite saying?
“The answer is always no if you don’t ask” From the great Dean Corbolotti

What do you like to do in your spare time?
When I am not cheering on my kids at their sports, I enjoy reading or going to the movies.

What advice would you give your 21yr old self?
It all works out the way it’s supposed to, have fun and enjoy life.

What are some challenges that you see in the future of supply chain, and what do you think will happen?
One big challenge for future supply chains is becoming more eco-friendly. As people and governments push for greener practices, companies will need to cut down on waste and pollution. I think companies will start using more renewable energy, recycle more, and be clearer about their green efforts.

Thanks, Sarah, for doing such a great job and being a joy to work with at Sleek!
