Who is Barbara?
I am Barbara Lacaze, a French living in Paris and working as Customer Success Manager at TenderEasy for two years.
Why did you join TenderEasy?
I decided to join TE to give a new dimension to my previous jobs. I was in charge of tenders in transport companies, and I wanted to see another side of transport tendering! Having the possibility to support people in their transport procurement is what I wanted to try, and I can now say… it is what I like the most!
What is your experience in the transportation/freight industry?
I have several experiences in freight industry. I worked in 3 major companies in France, in Road, Air, and Sea freight. I used to be Tender Manager during around 3 years, managing national and international freight tenders. It gives me a good view in procurement and transport knowledge, and also how suppliers see and work on transport tenders.
What are your main skills?
My main skills cover overseas, and especially ocean freight. I really like ocean freight due to its complexity and something that you can’t imagine when you never practice it!
And your hobbies?
My hobbies include history, learning new skills or information, travelling when it was still possible, enjoying nature and discovering new places. Reading books is something I really enjoy as well.
When should you our readers reach out to you?
Feel free to reach out to discuss ocean freight and to get tips and tricks on how to make the most out of your tendering.
Happy to suggest some good readings as well for those interested!
