Whether you're a business owner or a driver yourself, we encourage you to sign up for our free, Safe Winter Truck Driving Best Practices Webinar, happening Dec. 5 at 3:00 PM (EST). At that time, Aim Safety Manager John Rugarber will take attendees through the dos and don'ts of navigating tough winter conditions with confidence, ensuring not only their own safety but also contributing to the overall well-being of the roadways they traverse and the protection of the cargo they carry.
Here are some common issues truck drivers face during the winter months:
When we think of Thanksgiving, we typically think of the three Fs: family, friends and, of course, food. It’s a time to be grateful and spend precious time with loved ones. However, the challenge of navigating Thanksgiving traffic can be daunting, especially for truck drivers. However, with careful planning and a few effective strategies, truck drivers can ensure a smoother journey and maintain their sanity during this hectic time.

This multi-day event in Fort Myers, FL, is designed to celebrate Aim’s extraordinary 2023 sales year while laying the foundation for having another remarkable year in 2024.
As winter approaches, truck drivers gear up for an added challenge. Cold temperatures, icy roads and snowstorms pose significant dangers. To ensure safety and efficiency during the winter months, it's crucial for companies operating commercial vehicles to prioritize winterization.
One of the proposed changes to the CSA program includes a shift in focus from a score-based system to a prioritization approach. Instead of assigning specific scores to carriers in various safety categories, the new approach aims to prioritize interventions based on the carriers' safety performance.
This means that rather than relying solely on a numerical score, the FMCSA is exploring ways to better identify and target carriers with the highest safety risk. The prioritization approach considers various factors and data points to determine which carriers may pose the most significant safety concerns.

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. A huge part of Aim’s success is owed to one man’s game-changing technological prowess, big-picture vision and unwavering passion: Aim’s CIO and Vice President of Technology, John Reed.
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.
