Inquisitive and tenacious, Will Underwood began working in our Night Operations department in August 2014, while attending college at the University of Arkansas. He started his venture with the intention of utilizing his experience at Airways Freight and applying it to his major in Supply Chain Management.
Will previously worked as a warehouse and sales distributor, at Fayettechill, an Ozark Mountain based company that specializes in outdoor clothing and accessories. He also interned in research and development with a company called Southwire, before finally becoming an employee of Airways Freight.
The comradery of his fellow co-workers is what truly sets Airways apart from the other places he’s worked. From helping customers and sales agents, to the nightly responsibilities of making sure freight gets where it needs to be. Will has learned a great deal about customer service and it has given him first hand knowledge in the field he is studying for.
Besides working full time and attending college, Will is also an alumni of the Kappa Alpha Order, and has done many philanthropic projects including fundraisers for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, as well as reoccurring blood drives for the American Red Cross they proudly named “Operation Crimson Cross”.
Growing up about an hour west of Atlanta, Will was raised in Carrollton, Georgia. He is the oldest of three boys, one of which is also an employee at Airways Freight, Nathan Underwood. He has many memories of childhood including building forts in the woods with his friends and playing soccer up until high school.
Though referring to himself as “out-kicking his coverage”,
Will is very fortunate to have married his best friend and college sweetheart, Holly. They are recent newlyweds, and together they love spending time with their dogs, Arthur (a yellow lab) and Bitsy (a Great Pyrenees). They love going to the dog park, and really enjoy hiking. Will also likes to read, watch movies and listen to music.
His determination and “get the job done” attitude, are just two of the distinctive qualities that make Will Underwood exceptional in our Night Operations team at Airways Freight and we wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
