At OnTrac, we love to feature our employees for the hard work and dedication they show every day. This week, we are featuring our first employee spotlight of 2017, highlighting Mike Harris from the engineering department.
When Mike Harris first started with OnTrac in 2014, he was providing field engineering support for the Southwest Region. Now Mike Harris is the Senior Manager of Industrial Engineering for OnTrac. He has been an influential part of the OnTrac Engineering team and its development. He is responsible for the field engineering of both line haul and operations. To explain further, Mike says, “In line haul engineering, we are determining when and how we should move equipment to best meet the needs of our customers. The Field Engineers are focused on sort productivity, cost reductions, Pickup and Delivery Service, and new facility planning.”
Prior to OnTrac, Mike worked for FedEx Ground for 12 years as a Reginal Operations Engineering Manager, Hub Industrial engineer and an Administrative Process engineer. Mike received his Bachelors of Science in Industrial Engineering from West Virginia University, and moved on to receive his MBA from Mount St. Mary’s University.
One of Mike’s favorite parts of his job is the people. Mike feels strongly that OnTrac is made up of “amazing people that want to make a difference. It makes being an engineer pretty easy.” Mike is an influential part of OnTrac, and has helped shape what it is today. When Mike isn’t managing the line haul, or operations, he enjoys a good book. The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Dubois is a favorite of his, or you can catch him quoting his favorite movie, Big Trouble in Little China. Now “What more could you ask for”-Jack Burton.
