Aim Transportation Solutions is pleased to announce that Patty Durkin has been named Chief Human Resources Officer. Since Patty began her career at Aim in 2006 as the Human Resources Manager, she has been making positive, long-lasting impacts across the company. So true is this that by 2010, just four short years after being hired, she earned the title Vice President of Human Resources. Now fast forward to today: Patty remains an indispensable part of Aim, and so it is with great honor and pleasure we announce her promotion to Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO).

Aim employees across the country continue to embody Aim’s safety-first culture in all that they do, and it shows in the numbers. Recently, during an employee appreciation luncheon, the Aim service team at Dutch Farms, a valued full-service lease customer in Chicago, was recognized for five years without an injury. That’s an extraordinary feat given the hazardous nature of the job, and it speaks volumes about their unwavering commitment to the safety of themselves and those around them.
When stopping off the highway to fill-up the tank or grab an MTO at a Sheetz location, how the fuel arrived in the pump or how the truck that brought the fuel stays safely on the road is not always the first thought of the traveler. That’s not their job; it’s ours. Sheetz and their dedicated fuel hauler, CLI Transport, have been satisfied full-service lease customers of Aim Transportation Solutions since 2020, but the parallels between these two companies go beyond just a service provider and a customer.
In 2006, Aim Transportation Solutions and Olympic Steel shook hands for the first time. The deal began as a handful of full-service trucks at the steel distributor’s Chambersburg, PA, site, one of their 41 locations nationwide. Since then, the partnership between Aim and Olympic Steel has been one of mutual growth, trusted relationships and persistent support. This history, confidence and reliability has led to the next evolution in Aim and Olympic Steel’s partnership: dedicated fleet services with Aim Integrated Logistics.
