Chris Rudie

Chief Operating Officer

Chris made his introduction into the logistics industry in 2005 where he coordinated International Ocean and Air shipments for 2 organizations. In 2007 he moved into the freight forwarding industry working in Route Operations and Pricing for cross country shipments and managing a dispatch team. Chris broadened his experience in 2011 by taking a job in Loss Prevention/Claims where he managed liability and subrogation for 4 years. Chris returned to his operations roots in 2015 where he found new and creative solutions for a nationwide store to door program and vendor contract management.

Chris’ experience across various segments and roles within the logistics industry gives him a broad wealth of knowledge not often found in such a specialized trade. His work history in the Last Mile industry makes him a great asset to the PLG team and his willingness to teach and learn has led him to grow into the position of VP Of Operations here at PLG.

Chris lives in Farmington, MN with his wife and 2 children. Chris enjoys spending time with his family and taking part in various sports, including, but not limited to the unsanctioned, underground variety.
