John Sheehan | Operations
After 9 years with TCompanies, DrayMaster’s parent company, John was named Vice-President and immediately took on the challenge of making the trucking company more profitable. Almost immediately he saw how much time and money was being wasted handling customers’ rate requests. He saw there was no apparatus in place to record how many rates were quoted per day at each of the companies’ 15 facilities. There was also no way to know how many of those quotes resulted in jobs.
That revelation led to the development of the company’s first Rate Calculator Platform which showed that the company was running more than 800 quotes a week. As customers (3PLS, Freight Forwarders and Brokers) saw the look and speed of these professional quotes, they began asking about the calculator for themselves, and DrayMaster was created.
Prior to DrayMaster, John spent 15 years with ITS, an intermodal terminal and port handling company, ending as its Regional Vice-President of the West Coast and the East Coast Facilities. He also served as terminal manager for 8 years with Union Pacific and 6 years with a local Chicago intermodal facility handler that was later acquired by Union Pacific in 1982.
