Expediter of the Year 2018: Introducing our Third Finalists – Tim Paxton

One of Tim's nominators is Jamie Palmer, a driver with Barrett DirectLine, saying "Tim is the reason I found this career. I was not in a good place in life, and I found his videos on YouTube and changed my life for the better. He has a Facebook group he started that helps so many people, and he deserves every award possible."

Tim began his business as an expedite owner-operator in 2015, with the encouragement of his brother Allen, who had already been in the business for about five years.

And when Tim launched into expediting, he went all in, says Dawna Paxton, his wife and co-owner of Paxton Xpediting LLC. “As a rookie, Tim decided that he eventually wanted to help others who either wanted to enter the industry or had just begun and needed a helping hand. He also wanted to form an alliance of sorts with the people he had met along the way because Tim feels that there is always something to learn on the road, and you can never have too many friends to help you along and vice versa.”
