About the Guest
Jason is from East Texas, more particularly Athens, Texas. Jason has been residing in Mansfield, Texas, a little town northeast of Dallas, for nearly 15 years. He met his wife in high school, and they married after graduating from high school together. They currently have two girls and a boy.
Jason's brother-in-law taught him more about trucking. After some time, Jason became a broker for BFF Logistics, a trucking company where he makes deals and gains clients, and has learned the principles of business and the value of patience.
Jason named his logistics company "Braveheart" after the film of the same name. "It takes a brave heart to succeed" is his and the company's motto. Braveheart Logistics is merely one of many ideas that came to him.
Braveheart Logistics, according to Jason, cares about its employees. Jason and his wife ensure that their employees receive their paychecks on schedule and have enough time to spend with their families. Braveheart also provides other opportunities, such as their academy, which teaches more about the logistics business from both the dispatcher and broker perspectives. Braveheart Logistics also provides this service and the necessary instruments to equip their employees.
A significant number of truck drivers have had terrible interactions with several different logistics companies. On the other hand, Jason's strategy for resolving the issue or assisting them is to experiment with new approaches, make an effort to understand and empathize with them and educate them.
Bravehearts' Driver Qualities
The owner-operators position at Braveheart Logistics is currently open for applications. In Jason's business, he is seeking particular characteristics that his drivers should have and is looking for them. They are conscientious and get the job done within the allotted time, but the most important thing is that they are loyal to the company.
