Aim Transportation Solutions Drives Strong 2018 Growth

GIRARD, Ohio – Girard-based Aim Transportation Solutions anticipates growth in all business segments in 2019 following last year’s strong finish, reports Tom Fleming, president and CEO.

The company’s business divisions include Aim Leasing Co., Aim Integrated Logistics, Aim 3 PL Services and Aim Services Co., Fleming says.

Aim provides full-service truck leasing, commercial vehicle rentals, vehicle maintenance, integrated logistics, transportation services for the oil and gas industry, professional shop management and vehicle sales.

The company operates some 11,000 vehicles out of more than 100 separate operations and employs more than 1,200.

Aim’s national presence has grown with new operations in Landover, Md. and Las Vegas. And it broke ground on new facilities in Troy, Ohio, and Crafton, Pa., Fleming says.

Among some of the biggest changes at Aim were the promotions, effective Jan. 1, of Scott Fleming and Geoffrey Fleming to the positions of co-president alongside their father. The elder Fleming will serve as chairman of the board and concentrate on long-term planning, acquisitions and strategic customer and vendor relations.

Last year, Aim Leasing purchased more than 1,000 new vehicles and its assets grew approximately $90 million and exceeded its revenue goals, says Matt Svancara, executive vice president of sales and marketing.

Aim Integrated Logistics, which provides supply chain solutions, similarly saw expansion in many areas, says David Gurska, the division’s chief operating officer. Most notably, it partnered with Aryzta Baking, a leading player in the specialty baking market. Additionally, Aim Integrated added Clopay Garage Doors as a new account last year, he says.

Aim Integrated had a year of steady growth despite the ever-worsening driver shortage, Gurska continues. The division added five accounts while growing its business with existing customers and expanded to more than 65 operations across the country. Aim Integrated also deepened its partnership with Olympic Steel, adding more than 50 vehicles and drivers.

Aim Services, which provides transportation services to the energy exploration industry, also grew last year. The company is now a licensed provider of In-situCide Water Treatment Technologies, which uses biocides to combat water contamination.
