Ashley Williams-Booker was a Black school teacher.
However, Ashley is now the owner of Complete Logistics Service: a Texan asset-based company that distributes intermodal drayage services.
Through the multi-million-dollar company, Ashley transports more than 2,500 containers every year.
This makes Complete Logistics Service among Houston’s biggest small business drayage companies.
More Than A Black Teacher
Ashley was more than a Black teacher.
She received a degree in accounting and became both a financial advisor and a geometry teacher.
However, Ashley’s friend introduced her to trucking and taught Ashley to dispatch.
In her first week, Ashley organized various carriers, and they grew their fleet thanks to her.
And that week, Ashley also earned $8,000, which is ten times more than she could dream of making as a Black teacher.
Ashley immersed herself into this new line of work and founded Complete Logistics Service in 2014.
Digging Deep Into A New Industry
Four years later, she moved to the intermodal industry.
Here, they pick up a truck from the port, deliver it to the shipper or deliverer, and return it to the port.
By making this pivot, Ashley’s earnings tripled.
The former Black teacher now finances her trucks, which pay for themselves within 90 days.
And after several challenging but exciting years, Ashley’s Complete Logistics Service has reached an eye-popping valuation of $3.5 million.
More Than Money
Even though Ashley owns a multi-million-dollar company, the money isn’t her major accomplishment.
Instead, Ashley considers her most significant accomplishment as buying a 10-acre lot her company uses to park.
This lot is now the noteworthy real estate in Houston for trucking.
She Is Also Here To Help
After experiencing such explosive success, Ashley wants others to grow similarly.
She offers the Surviving Intermodal digital course, which offers all the essential details about intermodal, railroads, dispatching, and accounting in the United States.
Ashley’s mission is to let people know that anyone can make it in her industry, regardless of background, race, or gender.
