C.H. Robinson Worldwide got its start in 1905 when Charles Henry Robinson opened a small produce brokerage. Today, C.H. Robinson is a global provider of transportation and produce services, operating through a network of over 7,300 employees in more than 235 offices worldwide. CHRW is the largest third-party logistics (3PL) company in North America, reporting $7.6 billion in gross revenue for 2009 alone.
CHRW looks for interns to work in its transportation sales, produce and information technology offices. Transportation sales interns will enter customer orders into their shipment management software, monitor shipments in transit and proactively advise of late deliveries, schedule delivery appointments with warehouse clerks and assist customers and contracted transportation companies over the phone. About half of the intern pool goes on to work for the company full time.
Open to full-time college juniors and seniors who have a strong work ethic, the ability to multitask and work in a team, and excellent phone and verbal communication skills. CHRW prefers students majoring in business, logistics, supply chain, communications, computer science, management information systems or a related field.
