This past quarter, Cara Jungers took the lead in a project to expand US Cargo Control’s domestic chain sling offerings. It was a collaborative effort between manufacturing, purchasing, warehouse and marketing.
There were challenges along the way, but Cara’s proactive communication and quick adaptations have helped the team navigate these challenges and successfully launch over 1,000 new products.
One peer shared, “She is always up for a challenge and takes on a project with determination and eagerness. She’s a go-getter.”
The pursuit of opportunity has created an expanded product offering for our US Cargo Control customers, leading to greater fulfillment of the brand’s promise of Getting customers what they want, when they need it.
We are pleased to recognize Cara as our Q2 “Opportunistic” award winner. Well done, Cara!

Excited and empowered – Being opportunistic is something I strive for in both my work and personal life. Being recognized for this provided additional encouragement to keep it up.
