As Coyote’s CFO from 2008 to 2015, Jonathan Sisler was responsible for all things accounting and finance, from Coyote’s growth plan to deal analysis to forecasting, but he also played a tremendous role in developing Coyote’s culture—hiring the best people and developing the right operations teams are vital to Coyote’s success. With this deep experience in all aspects of Coyote, Jonathan became president of Coyote in 2015 and continues to oversee Coyote’s growth and operations.
Coyote Logistics was co-founded by Jeff and Marianne Silver in 2006 with the intention of creating a better service experience to shippers in the transportation industry. Coyote’s commitment to providing visibility and reliability to its customers separated it from other providers, raising industry standards for both service metrics and customer satisfaction. As the supply chain market adapts to match higher customer expectations and evolving technologies, so does Coyote. The company had a strong foundation to begin with, and it continues to build upon it.
Twelve years after its founding, Chicago-based Coyote has grown to a pack of over 3,000 employees operating in offices throughout North America and Europe. Coyote specializes in truckload (dry van, temperature-controlled, open-deck, and more), less-than-truckload, and intermodal (specialized rail) modes, and cross-border transportation for more than 14,000 shippers, from Fortune 100 companies to small businesses, across many different industries. Coyote’s ever-growing network of more than 40,000 transportation providers is crucial to fueling its No Excuses™ commitment to shippers.
After becoming a UPS company in 2015, Coyote gained access to the largest asset fleet in the country, adding UPS asset utilization, air freight, customs brokerage, and global freight forwarding to its portfolio of services. Backed by an internal team of transportation experts and software developers, Coyote designs and builds its technology in house. Coyote is committed to providing superior visibility, passing its technologies onto carriers and shippers through its web portal (Coyote.com) and mobile applications (CoyoteGO® for carriers, CoyoteHOWL™ for shippers).
Coyote brings shippers more in-depth, consultative solutions with CTM (Collaborative Transportation Management), its proprietary transportation management system. This past year, the company took things one step further with its SMART initiative: systematizing manual and repetitive tasks. Under the SMART umbrella are multiple products that help automate a substantial portion of Coyote’s daily volume. All of these contribute to Coyote’s mission to improve efficiencies for shippers and carriers.
Coyote’s commitment to service, technology, and solutions for shippers and carriers has remained the same since its founding. No Excuses.
