Lorena Camargo has been living logistics from a young age. She started in the industry at age 17 and worked her way up to Vice President of Operations at courier company. At age 24 she decided she was ready to strike out on her own. Because no bank would risk lending to a 24-year-old upstart, Lorena borrowed $25,000 from a friend of a friend and started her own company, PearlTrans Logistics in Los Angeles.
She’s built Pearl on innovation, quality and teamwork. PearlTrans prides itself in being a full-service transportation provider offering customized same-day delivery solutions. Pearl facilitates operations for healthcare facilities, private companies and military bases. From human tissue to aircraft parts to confidential documents and everything in between, Pearl ensures these are delivered in a safe and timely manner. Today, Pearl delivers everything everywhere from human tissue to aircraft parts throughout California and across the US.
Lorena is currently serving on the board of directors of the Customized Logistics & Delivery Association (CLDA), who advances the interests of the final mile sector of the supply chain through advocacy, networking and education. As the youngest woman and first Latina elected, she strives to support other women-owned and minority-owned businesses and keeps pushing for diverse and inclusive representation within the industry.
She is also a former board member of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO-LA). Lorena is a graduate of the Executive Management Program at UCLA Anderson School of Management.
“NAWBO has been instrumental to my personal and professional development. Also, in my personal experience, NAWBO is filled with phenomenal women who will mention your name in a room of opportunities!”
