Mr. Land states that “as a kid, my dream was to play professional baseball. The Los Angeles Dodgers drafted me and I thought my dream would be fulfilled. However, a torn rotator cuff ended that dream and I knew I had to get another dream pretty quickly. To show you that GOD has a sense of humor, I ended up in the transportation industry.”
Beginning his career in transportation, Mr. Land formed the Joseph Land Group, Inc. He fondly recalls, ”I had a dream and no money … over the ensuing 25 years we were fortunate to create a company which grew from a humble beginning to more than $179 million in annual sales.” The Joseph Land Group, at it’s peak, operated more than 1,500 trucks and employed 2,000 people in its twenty three offices across the United States. The company was listed by Price Waterhouse in 1989 as the eighth largest refrigerated transportation company in North America and the eighteenth largest company in South Carolina.
Since selling his transportation company in 1994, Mr. Land has become one of the three founding partners of LS2C Logistics, Inc. With this elite management experience in the trucking and transportation sector, Mr. Land is enthusiastic about how LS2C can fill a niche in the transportation sector. Mr. Land is involved in a number of exciting new companies.
