Chase Smith, President of yourLTL and Vestra Logistics.
As the former Director of Pricing for Saia LTL Freight (NASDAQ: SAIA), Chase brings valuable knowledge in LTL management, pricing, sales, and operations. This insight not only supports carrier yield management initiatives, but it also enhances the yourLTL customer experience by further educating their customers on carrier capabilities, network needs, and core competencies.
Smith says, “The goal is to promote equilibrium between the carrier, shipper, and 3PL so that all parties benefit from efficiencies that support the bottom line and allow us all to worry less about cost avoidance.”
“Chase joined yourLTL in August 2018. His addition was exactly what we needed in experience, drive, and determination,” says Carol Docalavich, CEO of yourLTL.
“His love for these companies and for the folks that he works alongside, are evident in every word he speaks and every idea that he shares. Most of all, Chase has a teacher’s spirit and will empower us all to be better in every way and to service our customers with excitement. Steve and I are honored to have Chase as a part of our family."
Smith’s approach to clarity and service in customer relationships is a welcomed disruption to what’s been the status quo in LTL shipping and the transparency this industry needs.
Kelly Butler, Director of Pricing and Carrier Relations.
With over twenty years in program development and data analysis, and thirteen years of supply chain and logistics experience, Kelly joins yourLTL with the ability to provide incredible insights to supply chain, sourcing, pricing, and logistics for the LTL industry.
“Kelly is an exciting addition to the yourLTL family,” says Chase Smith, President of yourLTL and Vestra Logistics.
“She brings years of logistics experience to our management team and adds complementary, perdurable carrier relationships to our portfolio allowing us to enhance the yourLTL customer experience and better positions our company for long term success.”
Smith also adds, “It became clear Kelly was who we needed in this strategic role when I called several carrier reps she had worked with over the years and every single one gave a glowing review. Kelly is a true professional and we’re fortunate to have her.”
