Case Studies

A Transport Topics 100 Motor Carrier . . .

One of the largest LTL carriers in the U.S. was faced with a particularly narrow and challenging Director of National Accounts search on the West Coast. They called on Robins Consulting.

“Craig grasps the important dimensions of a position’s requirements and zeros in on the correct candidate profile quickly and precisely. Craig has demonstrated a talent for facilitating the negotiation process at the offer stage, and provides valuable insight and feedback relative to his candidates. Our search was a priority on Robins Consulting’s radar screen.”

A Fortune 500 Food Processor . . .

A major food company needed a search firm that could consistently recruit world-class supply chain talent for them while keeping in step with their rigorous and sometimes lengthy recruitment process. Robins Consulting has successfully placed a large number of candidates at their 42 distribution centers across North America.

“During the search process, Craig does an amazing job of ferreting out top talent. He does an excellent job of pre-screening for job skills and attitude, and he presents appropriate candidates to us quickly. Because Craig has been in my shoes as a hiring manager he understands the time pressures I face and helps to streamline the process.”

A Small Third Party Logistics Company . . .

A small, rapidly growing 3PL company needed to recruit brokerage and logistics talent with the ability to thrive within their unique and highly entrepreneurial corporate culture. Initial recruiting efforts using advertisements and other search firms generated mixed results. Management was frustrated — until they partnered with Robins Consulting.

“In my three years (with this company), Craig is the only logistics recruiter who has been able to consistently satisfy the needs of our extremely demanding senior management team. He has successfully placed candidates at our corporate office as well as expanded our business by opening brokerage offices around the country. The brokerage talent Craig has presented has come to the table with both a book of business and a carrier following. Best of all, Craig listens and is very flexible during what is often a dynamic search process.”

A Large Petroleum Tanker Company . . .

A petroleum hauler striving to recruit a key individual to assume the COO role called on Robins Consulting to recruit an experienced industry veteran for their team. The Vice President of Administration was delighted by the result:

“Although this was a demanding nationwide search which involved numerous in-depth interviews, the candidate that Craig placed with us was right on target. In fact, he has far exceeded our expectations.”
