Brandon Elliott
Brandon Elliott

Brandon Elliott got his start in transportation working with cranes. His father is a crane operator, so he was exposed to trucking and regulations early on. He got his first chance at fleet management at 18 years old and has loved it ever since. Brandon’s other passion is technology. He operated his own computer repair company for 5+ years. These skills make him an ideal candidate to handle the IT needs and transportation regulations at STS.

She now oversees the record keeping and retention, heads up safety and compliance along with co-managing the accounting department.

Vivian McGinley

Vivian McGinley started in intermodal trucking in 2000, where she worked with Jana. After 7 years in Intermodal, she took a detour into tank trailers, where she spent 12 years learning the ins and outs of the industry. Appreciating the fast paced environment, she returned to intermodal and rejoined the STS team in 2019.

Robbie McKinney

For most of his life Robbie has had a wrench or steering wheel in his hands. He has been a millwright in a sawmill, trained crude oil haulers in North Dakota, and driven several different types of trucks.

He started with STS Intermodal as a company driver hauling various different chemicals to customers throughout the Pacific Northwest. When the job of shop foreman came open, he was the perfect fit and uses his experience and knowledge to manage the responsibilities of the position.

Julio Fuentes-Rede

Julio Fuentes-Rede started his career in transportation at a border town named Mexicali that had strong ties in the import/export market with Calexico, California. Early in his life, he was first introduced to trucking through his father who had been in trucking all his life.

Julio later became a fleet supervisor in 2015 after getting involved in logistics and management decisions in different positions. At STS Intermodal he has upgraded his intermodal skills and is always looking to help the team and secure commercial relationships with customers.

Julio’s main hobby is baseball and he is a huge fan of the San Diego Padres.
