For Chicago-based transportation and logistics provider Coyote Logistics, timing is everything. Founder and CEO Jeff Silver refers to his business as “a trucking company without the trucks.” Silver started the company just as shippers and carriers were looking for ways to make operations more efficient. The firm has a customer base of both big and small clients, but the company’s employees – most of them from the local area – are its biggest advocates. Coyote Logistics has repeatedly been voted one of the best places to work in Chicago.
