Sarah Olmstead

President and COO

Sarah is President and COO of Rebel Logistics Service. Her experience started at her father’s freight transportation company in 1999. She was hired on to help as a part-time office clerk. This summer “job”, little did she realize, was the beginning of an exciting, rollercoaster ride of a career with trials and tribulations around every corner.

During this time, she had the unique opportunity to be involved in many different modes of freight transport. Not only did she oversee a fleet of 45+ owner operators and hundreds of vendors, but she handled time sensitive air charters, specialized heavy haul loads, hot shots, hazmat, LTL and final mile deliveries. The customer portfolio came with contracts of all shapes and sizes from utility and nuclear companies, part manufacturers, bulk mail distributors, a hotel supply company and several retailers. “There was no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution in our world. Each customer required something different and it was our goal to ensure it was executed properly and at a fair cost.”

In 2016, Sarah decided it was time to take a leap. She realized this was an opportune time to establish a business identity that would solely focus on a niche service, one that was rapidly gaining popularity across the country… mile delivery service. The service would focus on cross dock and pool distribution with final mile service to retail store locations. “I wanted to avoid the spider web of services that most freight transportation companies get caught up in. They offer so many services that it can be very overwhelming for a customer. You eliminate the confusion when you focus on the main necessity by completing the final mile delivery timely, accurately and with little to no impact on the customer. Everything else just becomes a support function.”

And so, Rebel Logistics Service was established.

Karestin manages all daily operations and ensures all members of the team are maintaining their responsibilities.

“When I was approached with this job opportunity, I was cautiously optimistic. I’ve gained so much experience. We have so much to look forward to in the future. Our possibilities are endless.”
