About Jeff Booth

Jeff Booth is the General Manager of Opendock, a leading software provider for dock appointment scheduling.  Jeff has had the opportunity to help lead a variety of different business units throughout his career including Circuit City stores, the world’s largest pet training service at Petsmart, analytics and strategy for a movie theater chain, and a carrier sales team at Globaltranz. At Globaltranz he experienced the pain of scheduling in logistics with seemingly endless first come first serve facilities and armies of people on the phone or e-mailing shippers to get appointments.  If we never had appointments, how was everyone talking about on-time percentage?  There had to be a better way to do all of this, so he joined the Opendock team two years ago to figure it out.

By giving warehouses and carriers a shared schedule, Opendock reduces labor hours and eliminates back and forth emails with a self-serve platform that can be used by carriers to schedule appointments in real-time.
