Dear Mr. Benjamin:

I am interested in working for Jacobson Shipping Co. as a Shipping Associate as I have the matching skills and capabilities given in your advertisement. I have been working in the shipping industry for 2 years and believe that your company may benefit from my experience.

I am well versed with both WMS and DLx systems of scheduling orders in addition to the ability to coordinate orders in an efficient and cost effective manner. I deem myself adept at overseeing any discrepancies that may occur between inbound shipments and associated outbound shipping manifests. I am also efficient in dealing with customers on a regular basis in order to verify any problems that they encounter along with maintaining a liaison with yard jockeys in managing trailers for day to day operations.

Furthermore, I am comfortable with all basic computer equipment and software so I am quite self sufficient in generating reports and filing. Additionally, I can keep awake for long hours as I understand the shipping business does not come without its delays and other time related issues. My experience in the field ensures that I make sure that all the pricing and signage is correct at all times along with receiving and filing all paperwork related to shipping merchandise.

Please find my resume attached with this application which will give you a better highlight of my capabilities and experience. Thank you for your time and effort in considering my application and look forward to hearing from you soon.
