Feeling Thankful and Looking Ahead

This time of year often makes one introspective. You think about the year that has passed and about the year to come. We set New Year’s Resolutions and try to remember what last year’s were and if we actually accomplished them. (I know I’m not back in my skinny jeans yet, but that’s sort of …

Driver Credentials

Disclaimer: Some of this week’s blog might seem elementary, so if you find your intelligence insulted, just skip this week and go here for a laugh. Here at the Legion, we do a lot of pickups at military locations and ports. That means drivers have to have special credentials, identification, etc. Today, as a public …

Preferred Carrier Program

We all know that any brokerage is only as good as their carrier base. Legion has been incredibly lucky in the past three years to develop relationships with some pretty great carriers, so in typical Legion fashion, we want to reward them. I am very pleased to announce the creation of the Legion Logistics Preferred …

Desperately Seeking Students

As we look toward the summer and our incredibly busy produce season, we need help. And not just mental-health help. Serious office and sales help. And we figure the best way to get that AND give back to the community is by hiring some interns. I know I benefited greatly from the internships I had …

Transportation Funding Debate Rages On

As many of you in the transportation industry know, Congress has been working to develop a new transportation funding bill for months now. An emergency bill had to be passed to continue funding our highways through June 30, and there is no indication that consensus will be reached by then. It doesn’t help that we …

Settling into our New Home

We’ve come a long way, Baby. A month ago, the Legion was packed like sardines in my basement (and living room and dining room and occasionally my kitchen). Today, we are sitting in our bright shiny new office overlooking I-75 and admiring all the trucks roaring by as the planes headed to CVG land over …

It’s that time again at the Legion – Hiring Time!  We have a full stock of salespeople, but we’ve run out of inventory on sidekicks. We’re looking for that great Right-Hand Man or Woman who can help our biggest accounts grow into something truly amazing. Below, I’ll post the job listing. If you are interested …

What Makes the Legion Different

There are a lot of freight brokers in the world. Heck, there are a lot of freight brokers in the Cincinnati area! And honestly, all of our business models are pretty much the same – our customers give us freight and we use our carrier base to move it. (I didn’t say it was a …

Movin’ On Up! Episode 1

If you’ve been following along on our Facebook page or our Twitter feed (which I suggest you do!), you know we are working on a new office for the Legion. We finally outgrew the space we are in and decided to make a big move into an office that’s about twice as big and 300 …

Movin’ On Up! Again!

As you might have guessed from my lack of posts here, things at the Legion have been moving at warp speed, as usual. We’re now up to 20 employees and our current digs are getting a little…cozy. In order to prevent the spread of germs this winter in these close quarters, we have decided to …
