Dear Mr. Fielder:
As a transportation professional with 5+ years of experience in managerial capacities, I feel myself an ideal contender for transportation manager position at AA Company.

Using a proactive approach, I effectively take steps to resolve customer or shipper issues.During my work at City Transporters, I ensured that all members of staff comply with government regulations and safety rules, and created a safe environment through safety audits. I have been recognized for creating and implementing successful transportation policies, procedures and objectives.
I would like to meet with you in order to ascertain your expectations and establish the relevance among your needs and my abilities. I will follow up on next Thursday. In case you feel the need of speaking to me earlier, please contact me at (005) 444-5555.
