Global Transportation Management Solutions – The 10 Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs of 2019

As a company expands and spreads its wings across cities or goes multinational, the need for a proficient logistics company to support the business arises. Shawn Shaw, the CEO of Global Transportation Management Solutions, knew that the transport and logistics industry was missing a leader in end to end logistics services. With his understanding of the field, he found out the many loopholes and challenges clients and even the logistics business players face. Knowing what he knew by working for over 2 decades in this field, from the bottom to the top, understanding how to build teams, treat people and customers led him to start Global Transportation Management Solutions (GTMS).  

GTMS provides cloud-based transportation management solutions that take care of everything from shipment rating to routing to invoicing. They offer world-class logistics and freight management cloud-based tools that can be used to track and to generate final audited and GL coded invoices.

The Roadblocks

“I would say the largest roadblocks and challenges I have had are growing at a pace that makes sense, too much business can have as much effect on your company as too little” says Shawn. He adds “In 2010, we were bidding on 3 major companies, and won all three. The challenge was letting the last one know that we could not handle their business at that time. It was hard, giving up a great opportunity so as to not fail with others”. He looks up to Sam Malouf, President, and CEO at Malouf, and Jeremy Andrus, President, and CEO of Traeger Grills, for their unbelievable leadership skills and dedication.  

The Future  

Global Transportation Management Solutions plans to take the company’s infrastructure technologies advancing to the level of Artificial Intelligence. In order to take the guess-work out of 90% of the decisions which are manually being made today, GTMS is on their toes to integrate this major change as of now!
