July, 10 2015 – Palm Harbor, Fla. – FreightCenter, Inc., an industry-leading third-party logistics (3PL) company based out of the Tampa Bay area is proud to welcome a seasoned transportation professional, Charlie Kunath to its team as director of its new sales department.
This new department, the Enterprise Group is FreightCenter’s first outbound calling initiative. Kunath is building the department from the ground up and recruiting his own team that, once established, will focus on building relationships with high-spending customers – those who ship 10-20 times a day or spend 500 thousand to 10 million dollars on freight shipping a year.
“This is an exciting, new journey and critical growth engine for FreightCenter,” says Kunath. He believes everyone will prosper and benefit from it.
Up until now, FreightCenter has thrived solely on an inbound sales structure. The addition of an outbound sales initiative will allow the company to grow even further into markets not targeted before.
“FreightCenter has continued to grow since moving into our new office, and I feel confident that with Charlie’s expertise we will expand even further into enterprise business,” explains Freight Center CEO, Matt Brosious.
Starting as a truck driver, Kunath has 28 years of experience in transportation. Seventeen of those years were for FedEx where he led a year-long management training program (SalesTRAC) that provided top sales agents with funding to earn their MBA’s. He has also worked for third-party logistic companies, Ryder and Dedicated Carriers, as well as Consolidated Freightways – parent company to Con-way Frieight, a leader in the transportation and logistics industry. Kunath has a B.A. in Business Administration, Management and Operations from Eckerd College.
