GRD Logistics Training has been the natural progression from the Brokerage GRD Freight Express, Inc. The need for a “real” training program was realized through years of freight industry involvement. There are a lot of training programs out there that provide basics, but not individual supportive follow-through. We offer the “real deal”! The whole “9 yards”!
Our key personnel have a combined trucking industry experience of 60+ years from truck driver, dispatcher, broker, broker-agent, operations manager, broker/agent trainer, to back office accounting/management. They are knowledgeable in all phases of logistics and know how to impart this knowledge to you.
Our primary Trainer has been involved in the transportation industry all of his life, coming from a long line of truck drivers, in addition to himself having been a driver.
