Our people move freight. These are their stories: Rami Ablacksingh

Rami Ablacksingh has worked numerous jobs since moving to Canada from Trinidad, but it was not until joining the Polaris team that he found his passion.

As the Lead Loading Supervisor, Rami co-ordinates, assigns, and reviews the activities of the cross dock operation. “We are responsible for getting the right freight on the right trailers to locations all over North America,” Rami says. The loading crew works on a tight deadline as it all has to happen between 1pm and 9pm to meet the delivery schedules.

“It’s a very important job,” Rami says. “I love what I’m doing- The environment and the people are wonderful and it’s very rewarding to see everything take shape on a daily basis. The loading team has a genuine camaraderie, it makes working here fun and we always help and encourage each other to do our best.”

The team also partakes in a few activities outside of work. Getting together for a pizza and a few laughs is a common occurrence and a Blue Jays game is in the works in the near future.

Rami has one son, one daughter, and five grandchildren. He likes to keep active and plays in the Overseas Cricket Club in Toronto. Rami also notes, “My family members are all Leafs fans and enjoy watching the games together. I love the game even though I’ve never played.”

“I wake up every day and I thank the Lord that I found a career where I can be proud of what I do, can help grow our company and do my part to keep our customers happy.”
