Sales & Marketing Executive/Director of Business Development/Principal
Joseph Celestina’s vision was to revolutionize the way we process cargo claims. From 1982 to 1997 Mr. Celestina served in various capacities as a member of a Sherwin Williams Divisional Logistics Staff focusing on financial accounting, Transportation and Distribution management. There he saw the gross inefficiency, unorganized, and confusion of the cargo claims system, and he resolved to establish a more elegant, cost-effective, and time-effective method.
With over a decade of experience in the logistics profession, Mr. Celestina presented the problem of shipping claim filing to his brothers, Andrew and Pete. With their combined experience in IT and logistics, they founded TranSolutions. Since then, they have been changing the way we manage transportation functions relating to cargo claims, vendor credits, returns and freight charge overbillings.
Joseph now leverages his 15 years experience in the logistics industry to ensure that all processes used by TranSolutions’ web applications follow industry best practices. This has resulted in a 95% rate of resolution for claims filed using TranSolutions’ web applications.
Mr. Celestina attended Catholic University and graduated from Cleveland State University. He earned his MBA from Cleveland State Business School of Management. He is a member of the Transportation Consumer Protection Council (TCPC). Married for over 28 years to Terri, he is the proud father of Nicholas, Christopher and Alexandria.
When he is not focused on the business, Joe enjoys traveling, cooking and working out at the gym.
