Meet the Team




We believe that our people are the greatest assets to our mission. We're driven to support our employees with all the tools and resources needed to support their individual talents.

After determining that the predominant approaches to carrier and shipper technology had many shortfalls, Michael Bookout and Chris Sheid bridged the efficiency gaps with MyCarrier. Since then, we've seen our partner LTL carrier's improve their ability to reach shippers more efficiently to Quote, route, manage and measure their freight. 

Our leadership team has over a hundred years of combined experience helping carriers with technology solutions. Our technology is a prominent advantage, but the relationships that create a better shipper experience is where we excel. Simply put, we are about creating cost-saving opportunities and that's why 80% of the customers that use our platform are likely to use it again. 

Since the beginning, our mission is to deliver never-before-offered technology that streamlines both the carrier and shipper experience to create exceptional business and customer outcomes.
