Steven Velasco

With over 27 years of dedicated experience in the transportation and logistics industry, Steve brings in a wealth of experience in carrier management and operational excellence to our team. His career has been defined by a series of progressively responsible roles, demonstrating his ability to lead and drive efficiency across various facets of logistics

Early in his career, Steve served as a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton. In this role, he honed his leadership and organizational skills, training Marines, and overseeing embarkation operations overseas. Shortly after, he was able to translate those leadership skills into the real world, and became a dock lead and dispatcher. Soon after, he became an assistant service center manager as well as several other roles that have added to his comprehensive knowledge of the industry.

Steve was inspired to join Total Transportation & Distribution after hearing Ruben’s passion and vision for the company and learning about its rich history. The opportunity to be a part of Total’s legacy and witness its growth into Arizona, with a vision to become a tristate carrier, was a pivotal reason for his decision. The company’s strong family values and commitment to maintaining a dependable atmosphere further solidified his desire to be part of the Total family.

Steve is continually impressed by the commitment, determination, dedication, and hard work displayed by the Total team every day. His extensive background has equipped him with a robust skill set in managing and optimizing carrier operations, and he is enthusiastic about contributing to Total’s continued growth and success.
