Aim Transportation Solutions is excited to announce that after joining the company as a diesel mechanic in 2020, Kevin Reed has been promoted to Corporate Trainer.
Kevin grew up around trucks and heavy equipment and knew at a young age that he wanted to work with them one day. He attended school at New Castle School of Trades where he trained under Dean Kennedy, Aim’s Director of Warranty and Training, and obtained his associate degree in heavy-duty repair.
As a corporate trainer, Kevin will help with the ongoing continued education and training of Aim diesel mechanics.
There are many companies that offer commercial fleet services, but there is none as innovative, as customer focused and, frankly, as good as Aim Transportation Solutions.

John Reed recently celebrated his 30th anniversary at Aim, a feat that by itself speaks to his steadfast dedication to and enthusiasm for Aim and its mission. Since he came on board, Reed, and the remarkable team he’s assembled, has been setting the industry ablaze with technological innovation and envelope-pushing trends. For decades, he’s been a champion for Aim, his team members and the community where he lives and works.

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has long been at the forefront of environmental regulations in the United States. While their initiatives are aimed at reducing emissions and improving air quality, out-of-state truckers often find themselves grappling with the complexities and challenges posed by CARB regulations.
CARB's regulations primarily target emissions from heavy-duty trucks and aim to reduce pollutants that contribute to air pollution and climate change. These regulations include stringent requirements for truck engines, fuel efficiency standards and the implementation of cleaner technologies. While these measures align with broader environmental goals, out-of-state truckers face unique challenges in complying with CARB regulations.

In the fast-paced and competitive world of business, there is one thing that Aim Transportation Solutions refuses to let slide: employee appreciation. While salaries and benefits are essential, there's another aspect of employee satisfaction that should never be overlooked: recognition and appreciation.
One of the ways Aim Transportation Solutions shows appreciation to our employees is by hosting employee appreciation lunches at each of our shops nationwide. As you may have seen on Aim’s social media over the summer, our awesome service managers and local teams host a lunch in their respective shops to show appreciation for the job each Aim employee performs daily. Most of the lunches are also attended by a member or two from our executive team in addition to the local folks.
