R2 Logistics, Inc., a Third Party Logistics service provider, today announced that Kris Orent has joined the Florida based company as Director of LTL.
“Kris will provide a skill set for R2 that will enable us to expand our carrier base while targeting customer account specific LTL opportunities as we progress into 2016,” said Co-VP of Operations, Brad Schneider. “His focus, along with the upgrade to our TMS platform in the very near future, will allow Kris the ability to demo and cross sell into markets we were unable to in the past.”
As Director of LTL, Orent will work out of the Dallas operations office and his sole objective will be to exponentially grow the company’s LTL portfolio. This will include on-boarding of LTL carriers, handling LTL RFP’s and training the Sales staff. In his previous position as Senior Business Development Manager at Cardinal Logistics Management, Orent implemented a cloud based TMS, handled LTL integrations and developed a diverse carrier base to create the LTL portion of their business.
“Kris was instrumental in the startup of his prior organization’s LTL business and we are excited to have him join the R2 team!” stated Schneider.
