How to Properly Delegate Tasks to Your Team

For the past several years, Chris Jamroz has led STG Holdings, LLC, as CEO. Based in New Jersey, this company maintains independent container freight station facilities for container freight transported by sea and air. Prior to this, Chris Jamroz held multiple other leadership positions and successfully oversaw the work of several thousand employees.

Good delegation is an important skill for managers and other leaders. Several considerations related to proper delegation include:

Providing training. Ideally, you want to delegate tasks to people who can already perform them. But you cannot assume someone has the knowledge to complete a task you give them. Instead, make sure training and resources are available to people when you assign them a new task. This not only expands their skill range, but it also betters the chance that tasks will be finished in a timely and accurate manner.

Letting go. One of the reasons leaders decide not to delegate is because they struggle with removing themselves from the work. However, letting go of certain tasks can help you get more done. Start by delegating small tasks and work your way up from there. Over time, you will learn that you can trust your team and you will discover the skills your co-workers have. At the same time, make sure you don’t over-delegate and assign tasks to others that you should be doing yourself.

Using feedback. Both you and your workers should provide feedback about the delegation process. For you, make sure you thank your workers when they do a good job on a task. If they fall short, give them constructive criticism. At the same time, encourage your workers to share their thoughts about your delegating abilities and whether they felt everyone got the right tasks and had the resources they needed.

As CEO of STG Holdings, LLC, in South Kearny, New Jersey, Chris Jamroz is responsible for overseeing the most expansive network of container freight station (CFS) facilities in North America. In the United States alone, STG offers more than 4 million square feet of warehouse space. In addition to managing the company’s day-to-day operations, Chris Jamroz works with the company’s other executives to formulate its strategic planning, including STG’s newly appointed chief financial officer.

In March 2018, STG Holdings named Joe Toczak, an experienced finance executive with a background in manufacturing and distribution, to serve as the company’s new chief financial officer. An MBA graduate of the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, his specific background in international logistics and experience navigating complicated mergers and acquisitions make him an ideal choice to fill the role. The new hire is part of STG’s ongoing growth strategy, which has included the acquisition of companies such as Freight Force.

STG’s Jamroz Focuses on Investment in CFS Industry

An accomplished senior executive, Chris Jamroz serves as CEO of St. George Logistics Holdings (STG). The South Kearny, New Jersey-based company is the nation’s leader in the container freight station market, doing business in major ports on both the west and the east coast. Toward the close of 2016, Chris Jamroz was interviewed by the publication American Shipper, where he discussed his undervalued industry.

The container freight station, or CFS, industry accounts for about 15 percent of the total container shipping industry, yet it is highly fragmented. And because the logistics involved in the types of less-than-container loads (LTL) shipped by CFS companies are far more complex and exacting than those that obtain for the full-container-load segment of the industry, barriers to entry are often next to insurmountable.

Mr. Jamroz observed that the fragmentation among the CFS industry’s approximately 1,500 firms is not conducive to attracting investment. To add to the problem, the industry’s costs of operation and increasingly complicated logistics are joined by the volatility of world markets.

Mr. Jamroz believes that his industry is ripe for consolidation and a thorough modernization, and has directed STG along these lines in its broad investment strategies.

STG Holdings – Efficiency and Capacity in Container Freight Services

Overseeing STG Holdings, LLC, Chris Jamroz leads the largest network of independent container freight stations (CFS) across North America. In the United States alone, the firm offers warehousing space spanning four million square feet. With Chris Jamroz’ New Jersey-headquartered firm currently expanding its Chicago regional operations, he is overseeing a process of industry consolidation that has encompassed the merger of St. George Logistics and AZ Corporation, subsidiaries of STG Holdings.

Interviewed in late 2016 by American Shipper, Mr. Jamroz singled out a major issue facing the CFS industry as being “critical underinvestment” that has resulted from industry fragmentation and neglect, with the vast majority of freight moves accomplished through full-container-load. This is problematic because global shipping cyclicality, coupled with excess capacity, has resulted in less-than-containerload freight volumes.

The merger of the two major CFS companies, St. George Logistics and AZ Corporation, enables long-needed technology automation that seamlessly integrates two major distribution networks across a combined 32 facilities nationwide.

Because STG operates as a independent outsourcer, it has a unique ability to optimize efficiency through functioning at full capacity. This contrasts with freight forwarders that have less flexibility when it comes to seasonality and cyclicality in shipping volumes. Its unique pay-per-service system ties business volume directly to operating expenses in ways that protect the bottom line.
