Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley White.
Hi Ashley, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started in transportation five years ago, I can remember it like it was yesterday, I worked for a large supply chain & logistics company in Roswell, Georgia. I was so excited to be apart of a new industry and learning how it operated, but I had no idea what I was in for! The many thrills of the transportation industry excited me because you will almost NEVER have the same situation happen to you twice, and with that comes nothing but crazy adventures to say the least. I never thought about starting my own transportation company until about a year ago, I was scrolling through Instagram, and I came across an ad for being a freight broker, I was instantly interested. I had been working for a 3PL the previous year, which basically prepared me and would give me a successful head start in my new venture.
As I prepared to kick off my business, I partnered up with two amazing people who played a major part in what I now call Go Elite Express Transportation. Now, although my initial company was started to strictly deal with the transportation of freight and semi-trucks, it seemed like God said go BIGGER and as I started to think about ways to create a multifaceted corporation, it was like an epiphany hit me “Start a non-emergency medical company!” The rest has been History! My team and I have worked day after day to perfect this company for the great people of Atlanta, I wanted to create a transportation company that was built on the foundation of pure excellence. Go Elite Express Transportation is not your ordinary Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Company, we pride ourselves on offering premier top-notch service across the board. I came into this knowing that I was taking on a major responsibility, but the reward has been the greatest I have ever received. Without the people of Atlanta, we are nothing! It has been an amazing journey and an honor to serve the very community I grew up in. That small seed of faith has changed my life forever, the birth of Go Elite Express is bigger than me, it is bigger than providing a service, the impact on the communities we serve is what makes this worthwhile.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The road has never been smooth! And you know what? I welcome that because it has taught me many lessons along the way. I struggled mainly with the fear of not knowing what will happen next, but I have had to learn that when I take leaps of faith, it will be many times I might stumble and fall but it’s up to me if I decide to lay there without trying again. I have daily struggles to, which comes with the territory of being a CEO of a major operation, but at the end of the day, I must be thankful, and I find comfort in knowing that I have created something that will be able to change the lives of many, and I get to see my vision come to life and passed down for many generations to come.

How do you define success?
Success is a state of mind for me, I define my success in how I treat others around me no matter what position I may be in I always act with humbleness. It’s important for me to be able to give someone else the knowledge I’ve acquired because my sole purpose for existing is to serve. So, by doing that, I feel I’m most successful when I’m helping another individual create their own mark on this world.
