Executive Team

Jennifer Birnbaum

Jennifer Birnbaum is no stranger to owning businesses and helping customers. She started Best Way Logistics in 2002 with three employees and has built it to over 3800 local and national customers that ship nationally and internationally.

Best Way does literally what their name says; they find the best way for their clients to meet their needs to balance results, price and quality in all their shipping and delivery needs. Best Way doesn’t want to be the biggest, they strive to be the best.

A self-proclaimed serial entrepreneur for over 13 years, Jennifer has a unique combination of both optimism and attention to detail that sets a very high standard for her team. She has an exceptional ability to care for her customers and employees while having laser focus on getting things done.

“I saw a need that shippers had for attention to detail.” She created a streamlined approach and loves her work because it’s different every day. “I get excited when I see the value of our staff when they go the extra mile for our customers. I have the best staff.”

Her vision is for Best Way’s associates, solutions, and technology to enhance the business of our customers, delivering exceptional service through communication, education, and problem solving.


Kenneth Copeland
Chief Executive Officer

Kenneth is a seasoned logistics veteran with over 20 years experience in the freight transportation field. Diverse industry knowledge has enabled him to act in hybrid roles throughout his professional career.

Kenneth received his “freight legs” early on by working for a large Kansas City based import company, while moonlighted as a part time college student. Eyes wide open, he quickly learned all aspects of supply chain, and employee management. With experiences from the loading dock to the conference room, he credits his successes based on those valuable early life business principles bestowed upon him.

In 1996, Kenneth branched out and explored the path of business ownership. He moved away and staked a claim in the Packaging and Shipping business. After many successful years and accreditations as a leader in the marketplace, he decided to return to the Kansas City area.

Employed with Best Way Logistics since 2005, Kenneth currently holds the title of Chief Executive Officer. His role includes assisting with business development and implementing business strategies that ultimately define successes at Best Way Logistics.
