Aim Transportation Solutions, a family-owned and -operated provider of commercial trucks and transportation services for more than 40 years, has some big news coming out of their corporate headquarters in Youngstown, OHIO: a new Chief Financial Officer has been appointed.
Aim is privileged to name Harry Shood, former Chief Accounting Officer within the organization, to the role of CFO. Coming off the heels of a record-shattering sales year, Shood, who joined Aim a year ago as the Chief Accounting Officer, has already proven himself to be vital to Aim’s strategic plan for long-term success.
They say hope springs eternal, and Regional Vice President Rob Vogan and his wife, Angela, would tell you they're right.

Drivers can now report breakdowns quickly and more efficiently through the new Road Rescue module inside the Aim Navigator app.
Instead of a driver having to call to report a breakdown, he or she could use the new feature to instantly send an alert to personnel in Aim's Road Rescue department, who will immediately contact the driver.
Using GPS coordinates provided automatically through the app, the Road Rescue team can dispatch a tow truck to the exact location of the impaired vehicle. The driver can also choose to receive text updates once service is dispatched.

If you’ve ever purchased plants at a Costco Wholesale store in or around Chicago, then you’ve purchased plants from Leider Greenhouses, a valued Aim Transportation Solutions customer. The wholesale plant grower supplies over 26 Costco locations in Chicagoland. They grow out of two locations in Illinois: one in Buffalo Grove, which also features their garden center where you can purchase their beautiful flora directly, and the other in Knoxville, an expansive 350-acre site where they grow a large portion of their plants.
The relationship between the availability of new vehicles and the intensity of the used truck market is pretty obvious when you think about it. If there isn’t enough new equipment to keep up with demand, then consumers will be forced into alternatives. The next logical step in this case is, of course, to purchase used equipment. Naturally, those in need started knocking down the doors of used truck dealers.
