"We're out. Standing. In our field!"

Mandy Barton

Founder/CEO

I’m here to increase the good of life around me.  Our company values are my personal values.  I am relentlessly driven to provide avenues for my team, myself, and my community to find success and thrive.  I have a core belief that people are huge and I do not play to their smallness.

My chief responsibility here is constantly creating “what’s next” for us and enrolling my team in it.  A company that is not growing, is dying.  Growth of the company requires growth of its people.

The best thing about this company is our team who demands more from life, and from themselves.  They create and stand for our culture of personal growth and it is the reason we are successful.  Every time a team member, carrier, or customer hits a goal – be it personal or professional, my dreams are coming true.

Life really is Better with Barton.

I love being able to meet new people and build relationships beyond the transaction.

Being an operations coordinator/carrier development at Barton Logistics I work with dedicated and non-dedicated carriers; planning their weeks and assisting other carriers in becoming dedicated to help match their needs. Building relationship with a win for both the carrier and Barton Logistics.

I drink coffee with a passion, so come find me early or late and let’s make life better with Barton!

Katy Taylor

Appointments

I enjoy being able to meet people and grow relationships that reach beyond the transaction.

Being a part of the Customer Service/Barton Support/Appointments team has given me opportunities to grow as a person in new ways that I did not realize were possible. I work with customers, shippers, and receivers to set appointments for our carriers to help make the transition of freight as seamless as possible. Building relationships with customers and shippers has been a very rewarding part of my job.

Working here at Barton Logistics has helped to give me the confidence to move forward with setting and achieving goals, and working in a capacity that is fast paced and exciting. Having a team of people all working together to bring the best service possible, and who are supportive to the team as a whole and to the individuals is amazing, and it really shows in the dedication we have to our work, and making  life better with Barton.

Cassandra Garza

Transportation Coordinator

Barton is a place that cares about their employees as much as their customers. I have grown a lot since the time I started here at Barton, and only continue to learn more about myself and the business as a whole.

Here I am driven to succeed. I am surrounded by team of ambitious people. My main focus is the on the carrier. I help plan hauls and get them the capacity they need to keep the wheels rolling.  I have built relationships with carriers and continue to propel our business into the future! I utilize all my resources here at Barton, and with an amazing team we are able to accomplish a lot for our carriers and customers!

I believe this industry is the back bone of the economy,  and I am proud to be such an integral part of the industry delivering goods to the good people of America and beyond!

Amy Tijerina

Bookkeeper/HR Assistant

I joined the Barton Team back in December of  2012 not knowing a single thing about the transportation industry. With years of learning, hard work, dedication, and opportunities presented, I have had the privilege of moving from Operations and Dispatching to our Accounting Department as a Bookkeeper.

In addition, I am currently shadowing HR and am Barton’s Human Capital Coordinator and newly developed Procurement Specialist.

I love where I have landed and love people in general. I am always full of smiles, laughter, and comfort with the willingness to help my team, customers or carriers at the drop of a hat.

My home life is very busy, I am a Mom of 4 grown children and a brand new grandson. My family is growing and expanding and I’m called the “Mom” to many here at Barton. I take pride in living up to my late Father’s example, work ethic and standards. Barton has taught me to ”Demand more from Life and Yourself”  and to “ Never Ever Quit” continuing to keep me dependable, moving, stretching, growing and humble.

Zen Trevino

Vice President of Operations Support

As the Personnel and Process developer, I am responsible for the design and implementation of many of our core processes, new hire onboarding/training, continuing education, quality control and risk mitigation.

In my life as a husband, father of 3, and my role here at Barton Logistics it is important to me that my core values mirror my employer’s and that’s EXACTLY what led me here. At Barton Logistics, we do what we say we’re are going to do, NO EXCUSES.

My Core Values:

People – People are important, it’s through investment in them that we change transactional relationships into transformational ones.

Service – Anyone can provide a service, but without Quality, Excellence and Execution you won’t be building sustainable relationships.

Professionalism – As mom always said “First Impressions Matter” and professionalism goes right along with it.  “You got one shot, so make it count”.

Integrity – We’ve all taken our share of nicks and bruises in life, it’s how we handle them that defines our character.

 

What defines you?

Marissa Bustoz

Customer Service/Appointments

The thing Barton has taught me the most is to never, ever quit

Being on the customer service/appointments team, we work to accommodate the needs of our customers, shippers, receivers, and carriers. We jump in to help seek solutions to opportunities that arise during the everyday ebb and flow of this industry. Working at Barton has provided me with opportunities to try new things, and the stability to grow toward a more goal-oriented and intentional life. It is fast paced and exciting, and you always have the next step to take. Having a team that never, ever quits has been very rewarding on both a personal and professional level. We are more than a job, we are a team and a family.
