You’ve heard the word “logistics” before, but what exactly does it mean? A third-party logistics provider (3PL) specializes in managing transportation, helping the movement of goods. Look around you. Every product you see, from the hoodie in your closet to the pizza in your freezer,
has spent some amount of time on a truck, ship, train, or plane. As the industry continues to grow, so does the opportunity to advance and develop a career. It’s rewarding, fast-paced, and necessary. Transportation logistics is a vital industry that will be around as long as there are goods to transport and people that need them.
Are you looking for a career that matters? Are you looking to make a difference and be part of something big? Are you looking for awesome training with inspiring people? Look into logistics. We’re looking for competitive, self-motivated and goal-oriented team players. If that’s how you see yourself, we’ll see you on Monday.
Below are some of the promises we make to our employees. We want to keep you happy, healthy, and engaged. Whether it's runny noses, running at the gym or running into your boss at happy hour -we want to make sure you are satisfied on every level!

Our core values, called The Echo Way, are our compass, our navigation system, our north star for how we serve our clients, partners and each other.
We know that success isn’t permanent and that complacency is the fastest way to become irrelevant. Because of that, we are always looking for a better way, a better solution, a better approach. Always asking the question “what is the best thing to do?” and being drawn to try solutions that haven’t’ been tried before. We look for reasons new ideas will work, rather than reasons they won’t. Sometimes we may fail, but that only inspires us to find new solutions.
Bring Your Own: Passion. Energy. Enthusiasm. Drive. We insist on making the most of each day, because we have the ultimate renewable energy source – passion. Combine the tools and environment with what each individual brings to the table and you go from aspiration to achievement
Integrity means expecting more from ourselves, even when no one is looking. It’s not just a corporate responsibility…it’s a personal one. We value being honest and transparent even when that means delivering bad news.
No one of us is as good as all of us. And because of that, we know that teamwork is the fuel that allows us to achieve results that could never have been achieved alone. So, we depend on each other, get each other’s back, and celebrate each other’s wins.
The journey from average to awesome begins with work ethic. It’s what keeps us pushing through when others simply give up. While our tenacity defines us... hustle is how we stop talking about ideas and actually make something happen. We do whatever we have to do, for however long, until we reach our goals because we know… that’s the only way to be extraordinary.
At Echo, we view technology as our top priority and the major catalyst to drive our business.
Members of our Technology department are encouraged to channel their creative sides and power innovative solutions for the logistics industry at a rapid and efficient rate.
We are home to some of Chicago's highest regarded Tech talent and looking for more to join the team.
We're a big company with a small company feel. We provide plenty of room for growth, imagination and professional development. Check out what else we offer our Tech professionals:
I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time (More than a year)
I have been with Echo Global Logistics for a little under 2 years. Echo is a great place to establish a successful career in the logistics industry if you have the drive to put in the work every day. They provide you with all tools and training needed so that you have the knowledge and skill sets required to become successful. Echo's proprietary technology is second to none and provides a competitive advantage that allows you to establish long term clientele that benefit heavily from Echo's services. The Dallas branch has a great culture and I have established life long friendships with my co-workers. Coming from another freight brokerage, I can say that Echo's commission structure is truly uncapped and allows you to receive the fruits of your labor which is essential in succeeding in this industry . If you are willing to put in the work, you will be rewarded at Echo. Easy onboarding process and no drug test required. Echo is a publicly traded, 1.8 billion dollar company that is respected and thought of highly throughout the Supply Chain/Logistics industry.
In order to make money at Echo you must be willing to put in the work. You will not find success if you expect the clients to come to you. Reps that are willing to put in the work every day are able to establish a consistent book of business and can make 6 figures by year 2 (no joke). With that being said, the job can become frustrating if you do not have a serious drive to be successful. The job is not for everyone, but if you have the drive to succeed this is the best platform to benefit from the work you put in.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Chicago, IL) in December 2017.
Detailed and amazing evaluation . The process required interviews with 3 people. The decision Is based on close look at your qualifications. It was time consuming but I know decision is made very carefully.
