Meet The STS Intermodal Team
Jana Corder has been in the transportation business for over 30 years, with the last 28 years dedicated to chemical transportation. Her focus has been primarily on the Intermodal market, concentrated mainly on the growing tank container and flexi-container business. She has started and managed intermodal divisions for several different common carriers on the West Coast prior to Specialized Transport Service.
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.
Cynthia Kessler-Elliott managed accounts payable for a heavy equipment company in Las Vegas, Nevada for 2 years before relocating back home to Portland, Oregon. She now oversees the record keeping and retention, heads up safety and compliance along with co-managing the accounting department. She continues to wear many hats with STS, as she aids in daily operations, the hiring process, Human Resources, disputes and federal regulations.
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.
