The ability to look back over four years on an anniversary is an opportunity denied to many. For companies that incepted in 2019, the opportunity is almost non-existent as the pandemic cut down businesses old and young indiscriminately. Direct Expedite knew we created something special the first time we said the name of the company out loud. Less of a magic spell and more of a mantra, Direct Expedite summed up our mission with staggering clarity. While we’re always honored and overwhelmed by the success we’ve achieved, to look back with the team we’ve built and see how many of us find ourselves part of this incredible new Direct Expedite family and eagerly awaiting the adventure coming in the next four years. 

Eddie Rivera, Director of Operations:

“Four years ago, I started out at a job, not knowing what lay ahead. Four years later, I gained a new family. Direct Expedite took a shot on a person with no experience in brokerage, and now I’m the Director of Operations. This company is what every company should strive to be, and I’m just so blessed to say I’m part of this team. This all starts with ownership that truly cares about employees and their families. Everyone on this team is invested in this company, and it shows every day. I’ve been blessed to work from home remotely now for four years and must say the rewards of that are amazing considering the economy now as we know it. I cannot thank Direct Expedite enough for what they have done for my life and my co-workers as well. Happy Fourth Anniversary, and I can’t wait to see what the next four have in store .”

Becky Rooker, Night Operations Manager:

“I started working for Direct Expedite in 2020.  I wasn’t working at the time and was looking for something that would fit my new lifestyle to work from home. I can tell you that it was the best decision I have ever made. I could work from home in the afternoons, which helped as I had a baby to take care of in the mornings. I have seen so many wonderful things come from the company. Each Birthday (the whole family), we would receive a card in the mail with a gift. During the holidays DEX always gave us a gift to help with food, etc. and they send items all the time.  

We have the opportunity to speak our minds and suggest things that might help the company become better. We are never micro-managed, and DEX is always going above and beyond to give us the technology we need to succeed in our line of business. The whole team is a big family. We share our vacations, babies, anything important to us, and that is the key difference. We care about each other, and our company cares about us.”

Santiago Restrepo, Overnight and Weekend Manager:

“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of the Direct Expedite team for the past three years. These years have been a journey of personal and professional growth, filled with invaluable experiences and wonderful colleagues. I am thankful for the trust and support I have received, which have allowed me to contribute to and thrive within this organization.

I look forward to many more years of collaboration and success with Direct Expedite.

Congratulations to Direct Expedite on reaching its four-year anniversary! This milestone is a testament to the team’s dedication, hard work, and commitment to excellence. Here’s to many more years of success and continued growth.”

Fausto Cardona, Operations Manager – Days:

“I am truly happy to have been part of this incredible journey with our company. Over the years, I’ve witnessed our company’s remarkable growth and success, and it’s been an honor to contribute to it. Professionally, this role has been a catalyst for my personal growth and development. It has challenged me to continuously adapt, improve, and refine my skills.

Moreover, the camaraderie and collaborative spirit within our organization have not only made every workday enjoyable but have also created a sense of belonging and personal fulfillment!”

Dayna Harap, Vice President:

As I reflect on hitting our four-year anniversary, I think about the reasons the four partners decided to start the company, which are: change the way Ground Expedite is perceived, offer services like no other company has, be as transparent with our customers, carriers, partners and the industry. Create a company that has a great reputation in the industry with loyalty to our people, our customers, and our carriers. Be a company that people respect and admire, and want to work with. Looking back, I think we’ve done incredibly fulfilling all of our original goals, and I look forward to what our future has in store for us.

Final Thought:

As we move into the next four years, it’s imperative that we continue to support and uplift each other.  Direct Expedite is dedicated to treating our customers with the same respect, dedication and excellence that we have in our offices.
