Hilborn is the first woman president of Logisticorp

Logisticorp Group recently launched a podcast called “Supplying Success” that explores the challenges and opportunities in the logistics and supply chain industry. The title also aptly describes Amy Salazar-Hilborn, president and chief operating officer of the Dallas, Texas-based logistics and supply chain company.


She is also the first minority female executive and the first woman president of Logisticorp, a testament to the company’s diverse and inclusive environment. This atmosphere, the company said, enables employees to be at their best — innovative and insightful — facilitating the high-quality execution and required operational pivots needed to maintain long-standing customer relationships and grow new high-value and high-volume accounts.”


Additionally, six of Logisticorp’s top executive positions are all held by ethnic minorities, including three other women.


Salazar-Hilborn has held her position at the company — which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year — since 2022. She oversees all operations and the overall financial state of the company. 


As a tenured leader of the firm with over 17 years of experience working in key roles to drive strategic priorities, Salazar-Hilborn brings important expertise and perspectives to her role.


She joined Logisticorp in 2008 as an accounting manager, and within a year was promoted to director of accounting, which included oversight of human resources, payroll and ledgers. Salazar-Hilborn successfully implemented an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and electronic data interchange (EDI) platform, and she oversaw ISO 9001/TL9000 quality management certification.


By 2018, she had elevated to vice president and chief quality officer. Along the way, Salazar-Hilborn has held or directly managed every position at Logisticorp, including ride-alongs with vehicle drivers.


She is tasked with continuing Logisticorp’s legacy of being “a supply chain that you can trust,” which is rooted in the company’s past leadership and its people development.  The company continues its organic growth amid ever-changing market conditions, able to navigate the various challenges that have presented themselves throughout the years.


This history of high-performance — along with the support of long-standing customers who share the same corporate and community values — is what allows Logisticorp to have a strong community impact, including specific support to minority business enterprises (MBEs) and women business enterprises (WBEs). As an MBE itself, Logisticorp displays a strong commitment to continuously increase its MBE-to-MBE expenditures, which includes 100% of its administrative and overhead spend going to MBEs. In 2022, the company spent over $1 million with MBEs and WBEs. And, it has exceeded Dallas Fort Worth Minority Supplier Development Council’s (DFW MSDC) “One Percent Plus” initiative, which supports a 1% increase in year-over-year spend” with diverse suppliers for the past six years.


Community impact

In addition to the MBE and WBE spend, Logisticorp believes in giving back to local communities. Salazar-Hilborn, for example, has been a board member of Exodus Ministries — a nonprofit serving mothers in need — since 2020 and has served as board chair since 2021. From its earliest years, Logisitcorp has been involved in many community services in the DFW area. From membership in various organizations to employees volunteering in financial literacy curriculums, sponsoring the Firefighters Museum capital campaign, participating in DFW MSDC’s annual ACCESS Business Expo program, and becoming a hiring partner for various ‘return to work’ programs, the company supports several social and educational programs that improve the lives of the people living in these areas.


“Our membership in these organizations enables us to connect with diverse suppliers, businesses and communities, allowing Logisticorp to tap into a wealth of knowledge and experience to drive innovation and improve decision-making,” Salazar-Hilborn said. “We believe that through these partnerships, we help create a more inclusive and equitable business ecosystem that benefits everyone.”


“Supplying Success” is an example of Logisticorp’s educational endeavors. The podcast offers practical advice, inspiring stories and thought-provoking insights from industry leaders and experts. The series not only informs general industry audiences, but also is referenced by the company’s staff — helping keep the workforce up to date on the latest trends and best practices shaping the industry.
