Hi, I’m Travis Burt, Founder & Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, at Transportation Impact.
eith and I co-founded Transportation Impact in 2008 with one simple goal: to use our several decades’ of knowledge and experience gained at UPS® to help shippers save money.
With my background in both sales and operations and extensive industry knowledge, I have helped catalyze the strong growth and success of Transportation Impact. Under my direction, we developed proprietary software to improve client reporting and optimization capabilities, while maintaining the integrity of client data. This software has been a key factor in our growth — because it helps our clients to grow their companies by giving them quick, actionable reporting capabilities that help them make smarter, faster business decisions.
In my 23 years at UPS®, I worked my way up from part-time unloader to Senior Account Manager, along the way attending numerous national schools and workshops to further my understanding and knowledge of the industry. During this time, I perfected the ability to implement streamlined processes and negotiate with remarkable effectiveness.
Through my long-standing involvement with Rotary International, I served in an exchange program with UPS Europe. Working in both operations and sales on this assignment, I gained perspective that has enabled me to bring unique and creative ideas to solving problems and improving negotiations.
Outside of the parcel industry, I work closely with Campbell University’s Lundy-Fetterman School of Business, and was president of the North Carolina World Trade Association, Coastal Plains Chapter, from 2000–2003. In 2011, I was honored to be named Carteret County Small Business Person of the year by the Carteret County Chamber of Commerce.
