Welcome to Trans-Border, Carolyn Friss!
Everyone please extend a warm welcome to the newest member of our Domestic department – Carolyn Friss! Carolyn is a veteran of the freight industry and is excited to start her new adventure at Trans-Border.
Carolyn comes to us from New England Motor Freight (NEMF) where she spent over 30 years working in a multitude of capacities across the company and country. Beginning her career at NEMF’s New Jersey terminal in high school, Carolyn eventually found her way to Albany where she led the local terminal’s business operations. Carolyn managed the office, oversaw training and on boarding, and scheduled and processed shipments. She even has her Class A CDL license with double/triples, cargo tanker, and HAZMAT endorsements!
“I never assumed I’d get into freight,” Carolyn explains, but ended up babysitting for one of NEMF’s executives in high school. She impressed him enough to secure a job offer and, now decades later, Carolyn is ready for her next adventure. “It’s different being on the other side,” Carolyn says, after working with brokers for years, but now having the opportunity to fill that role.
In the wise words of Carolyn Friss, “we’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time.” Inspiration can truly be found all around us. Make sure you stop by and say hello to Carolyn!
