Charles grew up in the transportation industry. His career started while still in high school when he worked summers for his father’s delivery service. In 1981 he joined the company full time. Over the years he has had the opportunity to work in every area of the business from warehouse operations and dispatch to sales and administration. In 2008, along with his brother Paul, Charles formed Blaze Logistics, LLC and purchased the old company from his family.

Today, Blaze Express Courier Service serves Southern Louisiana and the Gulf Coast for several industries, including the medical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as several third-party logistics companies. Blaze Express Courier (with the former company) was a charter member of the CLDA. Charles has supported the CLDA with its efforts of maintaining the integrity of the Independent Contractor business model. In addition to visiting with his state Senator to help defeat harmful legislation affecting worker classification, he is also a regular at the CLDA Lobby Day events to help support this cause.
