You are not just a customer, you are a partner.

At Legion, we love to build relationships. We’ve never been a brokerage focused on transactional freight – we want to get to know our customers, and to help them grow and develop. Our first customers, a decade ago, were small businesses, many of whom had never moved anything larger than a UPS box before. We …

We like to plan.

WIn today’s work of just-in-time inventory and incredibly tight supply chains, route planning is more important than ever. Fewer customers are receiving full truckloads of freight, and more and more drivers are having to make multiple stops on their routes. But planning routes, whether they are regular or just every once in a while, is …

It’s not just freight – it’s your livelihood.

Ten years ago, when I first started brokering freight, I had a customer who made shaving cream and was trying to get it on the shelves in Bed Bath & Beyond and CVS. He’d never shipped more than a few small boxes at a time, and was suddenly looking at sending half a truckload of …

We Work Fast

One of the (many) benefits of having more than 33,000 carriers in our database is that we can find a driver pretty much anywhere in the United States on very short notice. This comes in handy every day, but especially on a day when one of our customers has a true emergency. We’ve gotten lots …

We Don’t Screen Our Calls

The Zen of an Empty Calendar

A weird thing is happening to me this week. I keep getting caught up. My email inbox is completely empty, my to-do lists are crossed off, my errands are even getting done. It’s like I’ve entered some kind of weird Twilight Zone where efficiency intersects with the natural late-summer slowness that takes over every year …

Touch it Once

I hate clutter and mess. I hate losing things, or missing appointments, or forgetting about things, or misplacing things. I have this vision of my perfect life, where every counter is clean, every drawer organized, every to-do list finished at the end of the day, and every email inbox a pristine white canvas, just waiting …

Stick to a Budget

Growing up in a blue collar town, I’ve seen people struggle and live paycheck to paycheck.  Many may think that growing up that way is a negative experience, but I think it was positive. That blue-collar mentality is something I will always carry with me.  They never had a trust fund to fall back on, …

The Great Work from Home Experiment

A few months ago, at a meeting of women business owners, one of them said something that changed my perspective on work, and my office, and my job. This woman, who is incredibly wise and has gone through many career transitions, is the CEO of a multi-office staffing agency – and those multiple offices are …
