Yep, we’re different–in a good way
We were tired of the status quo
So we started asking some tough questions: What if we stopped the internal competition? What if we collaborated with our employees, customers, and carriers so that everyone was successful?
SEND turned out to be the answer to all of those. Since 2013, we’ve spent every minute providing excellent service and building real relationships with our customers and carriers.
It was a simple approach that’s yielded some awesome results. We’re proud to say that we now have a loyal base of quality customers, many of which have grown their company with SEND. We’ve also built a dedicated fleet of some of the most reliable, experienced drivers in the industry.
Today we offer logistic services to customers in the lower 48 states and Canada. We serve the largest nursery and food distributors in the region and nation. And the collaboration we envisioned so long ago? It’s the very thing that makes us different, and makes SEND great.

My name is Yilder Angarita, 24 years old, and I am from Colombia. I am new in this world called logistics, but I studied something related to this area, so I was looking for this. Now that I got the chance to try it, I am enjoying it from the beginning. In my free time, I try to rest by doing the things I love, like hanging out with my family, playing video games with my friends and brothers, watching anime, and working out.

When I saw Smokey and the Bandit as a child, I knew immediately that I wanted to be a truck driver when I grew up. Or at the very least, a CB radio owner. Sadly, neither of those dreams came to pass, so I ended up in the next logical career—freight logistics accounting. When I am not crunching numbers, I while away my time snarking with my husband, seeking out treasures for our tiki bar, solving crossword puzzles and enjoying outdoor adventures around Central Oregon.

In 2017, we became employee-owned via the completion of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The driver of SEND’s success has always been its dedicated employees. And the best way to recognize their value was to give them ownership of the company they contribute to on a daily basis.
The culture here continues to evolve. But whether we’re having a burger-making competition, welcoming a new carrier, or working together to help a customer, our commitment to the SEND community remains at our core.
“SEND’s guiding principle has always been to treat each other, our carriers and our customers with equanimity. If we do this each and every day SEND will naturally be successful,” says Nate Smith, CEO and co-founder of SEND.
SEND Transportation, Inc. cares about the wellness of our community and supports activities that bring the community together.
