We are very pleased to announce that Grant Crawford, former Vice President of International Operations for FedEx Freight and former President of Roadrunner Freight, will now be leading our team of logistic experts as our newly appointed President.
A respected industry veteran, Grant brings nearly three decades of experience spanning back to 1991 when FedEx Ground was just a startup. His vast experience and leadership will provide invaluable guidance to the Emerge team as the organization and its services continue to grow and evolve.
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to lead the Emerge Team during this crucial time,” Crawford said. “From an industry perspective, we must have an increased awareness to information and be historically efficient. Technology-driven tools that provide this information and allow us to maximize efficiencies will be vital going forward. The greater market must be provided visibility to where every single space of capacity is, due to convergence of record freight volumes coinciding with the fact that there are less drivers moving up and down the road. Ultimately that’s what Emerge does, help connect shippers to that available capacity.”
President Grant Crawford speaks on his new position and the impact of ELD’s and the driver shortage on the freight industry.
