Our Story

"Making connections that move the world forward."

Soshaul Logistics was started by two university business professors with the goal to make connections that provide hands-on learning where students can co-op, intern, or shadow in roles where they get to experience what it takes to meet the needs of business. The primary focus is on closing the skills gap that companies are experiencing with respect to onboarding new hires in industry. Soshaul operates as a third-party logistics provider that focuses on workforce development through training and education, logistics consulting, data analysis, and freight brokering. Each load, data project, or support activity is a learning opportunity, where students get to work alongside Soshaul’s experienced team of consultants…and with shippers, carriers, receivers, and 3PLs – like you!
