About POD Logistics
In 2019, we added our second terminal in Kansas City, MO. 2020 was a difficult year, but that didn't stop us from adding a new dispatch center in Dallas to serve the local Dallas area.
In Amarillo, we also offer 3PL and warehousing services in our 30,000 square foot warehouse with cold storage.
Meet The Team
President & CEO
In 2010 I joined AJ Hollander Enterprises as the Chief Operating Officer and one of my responsibilities was to manage the in-house trucking operations. At the time, we had three trucks, and we eventually had as many as ten trucks. In 2017, Gerardo approached me about opening a stand-alone trucking company. With my background in managing trucks and in dealing with intermodal shipments for our hide company, I thought it was a good idea. We have grown to 25 trucks in three years without any salesmen. That's because our philosophy is to offer good service at a fair price and let the sales take care of themselves. I feel very blessed to have been able to hire such great people to work with. They are the reason for our success.
Started in the Transportation field in 1991 as a truck driver. After 20 yrs of driving I got off the road went back to school. in 2010 I helped build a small trucking company called KCL in Kansas City from 1 truck to 20+. I came aboard with POD in January of 2020 in Kansas City and have helped build this terminal from 5 drivers to 14.
My experience in trucking started in 2013 as a mechanic working on tractor trailers for a local intermodal trucking company in Amarillo, TX. I was fascinated with how shipping containers were used to transport goods around the world and I wanted to know more about it. Over time, I worked my way up to Lead Dispatcher. After a few years of dispatching and growing the terminal to double its size, I decided to take on a new venture and help start POD Logistics in 2017. Our first terminal was in Amarillo, TX. Since then, I have contributed to POD’s growth by jump starting terminals in Dallas, TX and Kansas City, MO.

Dispatcher - KC
I have been working in the transportation industry since the 90’s, but I grew up around trucks. I started working in intermodal in 2012, and I was hooked. I enjoy the constant changes of this industry. I have held various positions in this industry, but I enjoy dispatching the most, due to the daily interactions with the drivers. I have worked intermodal in Kansas City and in Memphis, TN. I am pleased to join the team here in Kansas City as a dispatcher and I am looking forward to helping the terminal grow.

My introduction into the transportation industry began in 2019 as a dispatcher for an intermodal trucking company in Alliance, TX.
