Most of us know him by the name Shane, but did you know his first name is actually Joshua? Or that Shane used to own and manage a comic book store? We found out quite a bit about Joshua “Shane” Landelius, from his quirky sense of humor to his steadfast and unwavering loyalty. He has been a complement to our Truckload division and has made a lasting impression with Airways Freight.
Shane began his career with Airways in April of 1998. He had previously worked as a bartender and heard stories about the family atmosphere as well as the much-needed benefits Airways provides.
Born in Dearborn, Michigan and raised in Northwest Arkansas, Shane is one of four children. He learned a great deal of responsibility and self-sufficiency from his Mother. She instilled the work ethic he has shown today, and taught him to have an open mind and to try to see things from a different perspective.
He spent his younger years fishing, swimming and playing basketball with his friends. He attended several different schools including a boarding school. Shane’s favorite extra-curricular activities included Speech, Drama, and Debate. He mostly competed in duet acting and improvisational duet acting.
Shane has three top highlights in his life, the first is the birth of his two sons, Owen who is 13, and Ryan 10. The second is that he has travelled to see two oceans and the Gulf of Mexico, and the third was a monumental learning experience camping at Camp Hale, Colorado. When he has spare time, (which isn’t that often) Shane loves spending time with his two boys, and hanging out with family and friends. He also enjoys watching documentaries and relishes in the fact that he can karaoke stone-cold sober.
Shane is very loyal and always gives us one hundred percent. He is also fun-loving and unique, and that’s what makes him such a well-rounded asset to Airways Freight. His favorite quote is a prime example of his willingness to prevail. “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” – Milton Berle.
