Aim Transportation Sets Sights High for 2018

GIRARD, Ohio – Aim Transportation Solutions’ four business divisions are likely to continue their trend toward expansion this year, according to company executives.

The Girard-based transportation company is composed of Aim Leasing Co., Aim Integrated Logistics, Aim 3 PL Services and Aim Services Co. The four segments provide full-service truck leasing, commercial vehicle rentals, vehicle maintenance, integrated logistics, transportation services to the oil and gas industry, professional shop management and vehicle sales.

The company is anticipating continued growth in all segments following last year’s strong finish, reports President Tom Fleming. Aim operates nearly 11,000 vehicles from more than 100 operations that combined have more than 1,200 employees.
Aim purchased more than 1,000 new vehicles during 2016, and its assets grew approximately $50 million.

Aim Leasing expanded last year with new facilities in Richmond, Va., and in Norwalk, Tiffin and Delphos, Ohio. “We’re in a period of growth that we hope to continue through 2018,” Fleming says of 2017. Additionally, Aim Leasing surpassed its revenue goal for the year.

Aim Integrated, which provides supply chain and logistics solutions for clients across the country, had a record year despite an ongoing driver shortage, says Vice President and
CEO David Gurska. The division grew by $17 million and added seven accounts while expanding its customer base.

Today, Aim Integrated has 68 operations across the country. More notable, Aim Integrated will partner in April with Family Express, one of the largest independent convenience store chains in Indiana.

Aim Integrated will see a change in personnel this year as Bruce Berger, senior vice president of operations, plans to retire in March. Brandon Stieb, who was hired last year as director of 3PL Services, was promoted to director of operations.

Stieb will continue his duties overseeing 3PL Services as Berger mentors him.

Aim Leasing also hired Josh Lombardo as corporate director of rentals. Lombardo will develop rental business across the country under the direction of the vice president of sales and marketing, Matt Svancara.
