This month, we are featuring two of our employees from our Dominican Republic team, Oliver Cruz and Ysangel Ogando.
To start, let’s hear more about Oliver, our Logistics Analyst. He started working at Point Global Logistics in January and his daily tasks include tracking cargo, updating information in the system, and other tasks such as creating a CNS report and enhancing our database.
His role at PGL has taught him to listen to professionals with more experience to help him improve both as a person and as an employee.
Prior to joining the team at PGL, Oliver studied International Business at UNAPEC. Oliver started his logistics career at Tropical Shipping where he learned a lot about global logistics and how to work with carriers. Now, he continues to educate himself further by taking courses in logistics and supply chain management.
In his free time, he enjoys going to the gym and hanging out with his friends. He has two pets: one chihuahua, Doki, and a kitten, Lissi.
Now let’s turn to our Logistics Specialist, Ysangel, who started with us in October 2021. Ysangel stays busy keeping up with emails and tracking bookings in order to update them and keep the office and clients updated. For clients, she coordinates the operation process from quoting until the cargo is shipped out. With what time she haves left at the end of the day, she completes billing and keeps organized by making a list of anything she needs to follow up on the next day, such as a request for the shipping lines or shipping instructions.
Prior to working at PGL, Ysangel started at a local bank before moving into the logistics field at two local freight forwarding companies. Along with work, she is also continuing her education at UNAPEC through a double degree program at SUNY Empire State College (ESC) where she is studying to obtain a B.S. in Business, Management, and Economics with a concentration in Economics.
Her favorite part of the job is that “there is always something new to do and something new to learn.” In her career, she has learned that studying and working at the same time is worth it.
Ysangel plays volleyball every weekend and in her free time she watches movies, reads books, or hangs out with her boyfriend and friends.
Thank you, Ysangel and Oliver, for telling us more about yourselves and your careers. We appreciate your hard work and look forward to seeing you progress in your career here at Point Global Logistics!
