The Redwood family of companies now includes Redwood Multimodal, a freight brokerage company; Redwood Supply Chain Solutions, a technology powered freight management company; Redwood Distribution, a warehousing and freight forwarding company; and Freight Exchange of North America, a Redwood Company, an asset-based full truckload, dry van carrier.

Today, the Redwood family of companies employs over 300 people, operates across multiple states and is slated to move and manage over $500 million in freight in 2015.

    I have been working at Transportation Solutions Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    TSG is a great place to call home. This company knows how to bring the best out of their employees and reward them for their hard work. TSG knows how to make the work environment fun but can also kick it into work mode and get tasks done. The sky is the limit at TSG and if you prove that you are a hard-working employee you will be able to rise the ranks.

    Cons

    The hours and stress sometimes can be rough but that is every job. I cannot think of a con for TSG. If you show up to work and do your job there is nothing to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to just keep things the same and not change the way TSG functions. I would hate to see the company lose its fun energetic environment because that is what makes coming into work enjoyable.

    Interview

    Interview was really laid back. They make you feel very comfortable and calm your nerves very easily. They give you a look at the day to day process of the job you are applying for by allowing you to sit in with a current employee. Great interview.
