Frank Rodriguez is the Vice President of Business Development here at Best-Way Logistics. Through the years, he has used his comedic side to provide customers with an access point that feels both friendly and approachable.
Having started as a dispatcher for North American Van Lines, Frank has been working in the transportation sector since 1970. Not long after that, an opportunity presented itself and Frank applied for an open position as a salesman in the Western states.
Working in this capacity in the late ‘70s, Frank had a meeting in Los Angeles with Sears, Roebuck & Company. At that meeting, he pitched padded van and dry van freight services to a group of thirty buyers. His pitch was so persuasive that they requested 100 trucks a week starting the following week to ship truckloads of their appliances. He had to tell them that his company could only handle twenty loads per week because they only had 300 trucks operating nationwide at that time. The buyers agreed, and the deal was struck.
Frank’s transportation history has also involved him in the entertainment industry. He has been instrumental in setting up transportation for building materials to many new theater sites in the United States and Mexico for AMC, Cinemark, and Regal Entertainment Group over the years. This included providing storage trailers on site for storing materials, labor for loading and unloading those trailers, and unloading direct transportation freight from OTR carriers at the job site. Additionally, his work has also involved him in the telecommunications sector, traveling to Mexico, Peru, and many other South American countries for customers like Somera Communications.
Frank is bilingual and speaks both English and Spanish.
