What RSI Looks For in Transportation Executive Candidates

No two industries are alike. While RSI works with a wide range of clients, we understand what makes transportation unique. Our industry insiders and decades of experience have led us to the top qualities to consider when hiring transportation executives. In addition to technical knowledge and impressive experience, we consider characteristics such as:

  • Teamwork: Transportation leaders need to possess strong people skills, including working well with a diverse team and communicating effectively with customers.
  • Technical know-how: As technology continues to advance, there is a growing need for transportation executives who possess a strong level of tech-savviness. From using 3D imaging and software to arrange freight transfer on a ship to monitoring shipments by satellite, we understand the importance of performance-enhancing technical knowledge.
  • Travel experience: Transportation industry leaders are often required by the nature of the job to travel extensively for short- or long-term trips. An experience with or openness to travel is a must for many executives.
  • Flexibility: The fast-paced and travel-heavy nature of the transportation industry requires many executives to work long hours. From late-night shifts to long travel weeks, we assess a candidate’s willingness and ability to modify their schedule and get the job done.
  • Stress management: During our transportation executive search, we consider each candidate’s strength in handling stressful situations. Most executives find themselves required to manage large-scale operations, problem-solve on short notice and juggle multiple tasks at once. Through interviews, reference checks and behavior-based assessments, we analyze whether candidates have what it takes to excel under high-pressure demands.
