     Sheri is one of the most friendly and honest people you will ever meet and you can tell that she is passionate about what she does each day here with your first interaction with her!  She came to us with well over a decade of experience.  She started her career in transportation as an independent agent, which meant she did it all from securing the owner operators and the freight to dispatching and tracking the drivers.  Her work ethic, positive attitude and success was quickly recognized by a small trucking company who brought her on in 2014 to build their brand by creating a website and advertise on social media while recruiting, and managing a fleet of 30 trucks along with the team.  It was during this time that Sheri was introduced to Tri-State Expedited Services, Inc. as the company had trucks contracted with us.   


     As luck would have it, Sheri is now a vital part of the our team.  Sheri continues to work on the social media campaign for our company as well as advertising to recruit drivers that she personally invests in by guiding them on how to climb the virtual ladder of trucking.  She is been very successful in finding great company drivers as well as contract and Owner Operators. Sheri finds the positive in every situation and will soon have you understanding that is key to your success as well.
