IL2000 CEO Kraig Cesar works hard to stay on the fast track to success 

Successful companies find their footing in many different ways. In the case of IL2000, it found its feet behind the perseverance and focus of an Olympic hopeful runner, Kraig Cesar.

Kraig Cesar in suit outdoorsSitting breathless next to the track at Ted Gormley Stadium in New Orleans on an early summer day in 1992, Cesar knew he was at an important stage in his life. He had just competed in the 800-meter race, running against the fastest half-milers in the country.

Despite his best efforts, the Mississippi State graduate and multi-time SEC 800-meter champion had fallen short in his second bid to make the U.S. Olympic team.

“I was at my peak and had done all I could do as a runner,” Cesar remembered of that day in the early summer of 1992. “I knew it was time to move into the next chapter.”

 That was the first step in a career in sales and management that took Cesar through a variety of industries. The journey provided constant challenges, opportunities and an outlet for both his fiery competitive spirit and his urge to provide clients with impeccable service and care.

 It all came together in 1999 when Cesar founded IL2000, a full-service freight and logistics company based in Virginia Beach.

 In the two decades since, Cesar has built IL2000 from a one-man shop into a robust company that employs more than 60 people and serves clients around the globe.

“From the beginning, my philosophy has been to take care of clients, take care of employees and take care of profits,” Cesar says. “If you do the first two really well, the third one takes care of itself.”

 The same drive that pushed Cesar on the track has pushed him to assist clients with their freight and logistics needs. While helping clients save money is a key company focus, it’s just part of the equation.

 “Providing our clients with stellar service is our primary goal,” Cesar says. “We work hard, and when you do that while also providing them with substantial cost savings, you will be successful.”

 Delivering great freight and logistics service may seem like a world apart from sprinting around a 400-meter track. For Kraig Cesar, laser focus and work ethic will bring success no matter what the venue.

 

The Burkart Award

Values close to our heart

We started the Burkart award to honor the values embodied by our beloved colleague Robin Burkart, General Manager of LTL Operations, who passed away in June 2022. His unique attributes included a positive attitude, empathy, a caring attitude and the ability to help rally his team in the most challenging situations.

This non-performance-based award is selected based on the following:

  • Exemplifying a positive attitude and willingness to help others before themselves
  • Finding that silver lining in all situations and helping rally their team, even in the toughest situations
  • Showing a caring attitude to all IL2000 team members, not just their direct team
  • Exemplify empathy

Tammy Banks

GM of International

WINNER OF THE BURKART AWARD

Tammy upholds the meaning and importance of this award in every way.

When Tammy started working at IL2000, she quickly identified and took action to make her team more efficient. A year and a half later, she continues to guide her team in the right direction with empathy and the perfect balance of a firm and soft touch.

Tammy is an excellent resource to new employees, answering all their questions when they ramp up with IL2000 and a reliable resource to other teams regardless of the hour or day. Her conversations are informational and concise but also positive and fun. 

She understands that if one of us succeeds, we all succeed and shares her knowledge, time and experience with others often.

Tammy is always there for you. She is hardworking and has that spirit that makes you want to laugh and smile all the time
