In just our short time in the industry, we’ve learned that consistent, dependable service starts with the men and women behind the wheel. A broker is only as good as his carriers, after all.
We quickly found that through prioritizing generosity and respect for our carriers, we incentivized performance. The carriers enjoy working with us, and as a result, our customers receive great service. Win/win.
So far, this ‘bottom-up’ approach has enabled us to establish strong drayage and warehousing partnerships at every container yard east of the Mississippi, and we’re just getting started.

The most recent addition to the GRFC team is Head of Sales, Daniel Beard. Daniel also attended the Brock School of Business, but unlike John, used his business acumen to parlay his way into a role in entertainment as a tour manager for some country music heavy-hitters. Daniel has settled in comfortably to his role at GRANDROCK and the thing he enjoys most about his job is using his exceptional people skills to make connections with customers and carriers to ensure the best possible service for all involved.

During his tenure with his previous employer, Chance was the number one closer in the company for a full year – and he never looked back.
