Sharon brings extensive management and logistics experience to her new position
Jericho, NY (Vocus) October 2, 2009
Purolator USA, a leading provider of U.S.-Canada logistics services has named Sharon Siar, a 20-year veteran of the transportation and logistics industry, as the new branch manager of its Dallas-Ft. Worth regional processing facility.
In her new position, Siar will report to Purolator's Western District Manager Christopher Antonelli. Siar will have responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the Dallas-Ft. Worth branch, which is a 7,000 square foot facility located in Grapevine. The facility processes small package and express freight deliveries between the United States and Canada, and also within the United States.
"Sharon brings extensive management and logistics experience to her new position," says Antonelli. "Sharon is a strong manager with a results-oriented, hands-on approach to business. She will provide critical direction and leadership to her team at a time when the cross border logistics industry is beginning to emerge from the downturn caused by the global economic recession."
Prior to joining Purolator, Siar most recently worked in the start up and training of Carthage, TX-based JR Transportation Solutions' brokerage division. Prior to that, Sharon was a training professional with Grapevine, TX-based Bull Truck/Bull Transportation. Sharon has deep roots in the Texas logistics industry that go back almost 20 years, when she joined Forth Worth-based Design Transportation/Design Carriers.
Cross border trade is a significant source of economic activity for Texas businesses. During 2007, more than $27 billion in goods and services crossed the border, which marked a 20 percent increase over 2006 levels. Many Texas businesses have recognized the economic potential of the Canadian marketplace, and have expanded their customer bases across the border.
Purolator USA is the preferred logistics partner of many of these businesses because of Purolator's expertise in the Canadian market, including proficiency in the border clearance process as well as its deep distribution network throughout that country.
