our Vision

A world where the interconnectedness of global trade unlocks every worker’s innate value & freeing them to contribute to the greater good of humanity

our commitments to you

The global logistics business is a tough one, but your business is even tougher. You have hundreds of potential logistics vendors to use – but we don’t want to be one of them. We want to be your partner, and partners make commitments.

Every day, our team makes four commitments to our partners:

1 We Show Up
When it’s hard, when it’s easy, when we’ve done well, and when we’ve fallen short…we show up.
2 We Do What It Takes
Our clients aren’t customers – they’re partners; that means we don’t stop at ‘we tried.’
3 We Look Ahead
Our partners trust us to see the runway ahead, not just the tarmac we’ve traveled, in the global supply chain.
4 We Shoot Straight
Corporate buzzwords, doublespeak, and mealy-mouthed explanations don’t cut it for us, or for our partners.

Always the best

At NorthPoint Logistics, we embrace the impact that our team members have. Whether on our client partners, our colleagues, or our community, our team members are emissaries for the culture of values-focused professionalism that we live by.

We also know how impactful an amazing culture is – after all, we’re just down the hall from Kansas City’s Best Place to Work for the last 9 years. We’re committed to joining our parent company on that mountaintop – and to get there, we need the best on our journey.

Our hiring process is data-driven, detail-focused, and difficult – and we love it that way. If you’re the kind of person who’s invigorated by that challenge, let’s talk – because we’re always looking for the next great NorthPointer.



Clint joined NorthPoint in 2020, and leads NorthPoint Logistics, a full-service freight broker and freight forwarder. His breadth of experience, with previous roles in management consulting, finance, and healthcare in addition to his time in the logistics industry, provides Clint with a unique and distinctive perspective on both internal and client-facing operations.

With his wife Molly, Clint is the proud father of two children. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a decorated combat veteran.



As Chief Revenue Officer, JC leads all sales, client success, and pricing & capacity functions for NPL, focusing on maximizing value for our external partnerships. He has held sales, analytical, and audit roles prior to joining the NorthPoint team, and has extensive financial and software experience. When not chasing after his young children, JC enjoys cooking and playing golf. He resides in the Kansas City area and holds a Masters in Accounting from the University of Kansas.



With over fifteen years of experience in engineering, technical services, corporate development, data management, and human resources, Xing brings a business-focused perspective to information systems leadership, ensuring the firm’s strategic business growth and value creation through technology advancement. He holds a degree in Computer Science from Nankai University, a Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, and an MBA from the Kelley School of Business. Xing and his family now call the Kansas City area home, after working internationally before joining the firm.



With a true lifetime of experience in transportation, Tim grew up loading trailers and working in the maintenance shop with his father and uncles, and has held executive, operations, fuel management, business development, facilities management, and project leadership roles in both asset-based and non-asset-based transportation companies over the last twenty-plus years. He leads NorthPoint Transport, our full-service brokerage operation covering all modes across North America. Tim enjoys spending time outdoors with his daughter and is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas, in Saint Paul, MN, where he still resides.



With over a decade of experience in the global freight forwarding industry, Kaitlin brings a tremendous depth of client-facing, team-oriented leadership to NorthPoint Forwarding. She provides strategic leadership, focus, and guidance across the business, as well as assisting with cross-functional improvement initiatives, the growth of existing client relationships, and the acquisition of new clients. She holds a degree in International Business from the College of the Ozarks, and when not remodeling her home in the Kansas City area, is an avid cyclist.
