Milton Young joins Shaker Logistics to lead business development

Shaker Logistics is pleased to welcome Milton Young as senior business development manager. Young joined the company on June 16 and will be responsible for building deeper relationships with Shaker’s existing customers, as well as seeking out new opportunities to increase revenue. He will work closely with the leadership team to design programs and solutions for customers that combine Shaker’s strengths in freight management, transportation, and warehousing.

“We were thrilled to land Milton and know that he is going to be a game-changer for our business.” said Jason Smith, president and CEO of Shaker Logistics. “His background, experience, attitude, and entrepreneurial spirit will help Shaker Logistics build strong relationships with our customers and expand our business to new clients and markets.”

Young’s logistics experience includes strategic business development roles most recently at Carmalink, where he created customer acquisition strategies for the company’s technology-based fleet asset tracking solution; and at Stone Management, where he grew key accounts in warehousing and transportation services and developed sales process improvements. He also spent a decade at Turbine Services Limited Group in Saratoga Springs in various sales, marketing, and business development roles.

“As we grow, we really need a key player on our sales team who is equally comfortable talking with customers and growing relationships as digging deep into data and analytics to find hidden opportunities,” said Smith. “Milton perfectly fits that profile.”

Young will advise potential customers on the breadth of Shaker’s solutions for logistics and supply chain management, including truckload shipments, specialized and expedited freight, dedicated fleet services, warehousing, and more.

“I am excited to join Shaker because they are dedicated to becoming industry leaders,” Young said. “They are committed to excellence and they demonstrate it through their actions and execution — that’s the type of team I can be proud to represent. I can’t wait to contribute to the success of the company.”
