FreightCaviar Podcast: Building Better Carrier-Broker Partnerships
Founder of Tag Trans Inc., Toni Gjurovski, and Director of Operations at Logan Premium Logistics, Simon Wylangowski, discuss what makes a successful and lasting carrier-broker relationship.
In this episode of the Freight Caviar Podcast, we sat down with Toni Gjurovski, the Founder of TAG Trans Inc., and Simon Wylangowski, Director of Operations at Logan Premium Logistics. Toni takes us on his journey of growing up in Macedonia, starting TAG Trans, and then creating a brokerage partnership with Simon. Simon sheds light on the importance of seeing the broker as a customer and how they care for their clients.
While working as a rep at Echo, Simon often worked with Toni and TAG Trans. He remembered building a strong relationship with Toni, who always treated him more like a customer than just another broker, a distinction from most carriers.
