Produce season is upon us! For those of you across the Midwest, the snow is melting and the crops are growing, which means there will be a much larger need for Carrier Sales Representatives across the nation. This is a key role this time of year, as this role is responsible for getting this produce from point A to point B at the best rate possible. When companies get a sudden increase in requests from their customers to move this produce freight, these companies will be hiring a larger number of Carrier Reps.
The main role of the Carrier Sales Representative is to build carrier relationships, sell freight, negotiate rates and handle operational functions to get freight from point A to point B.

Why it’s important:
Carrier Sales Representatives are important year-round, however, CS Recruiting has determined that year after year, they see a sizable vacancy of qualified candidates to handle the large amounts of product being shipped throughout the US.
