For more than four decades, family-owned and -operated Aim Transportation Solutions has been a pillar in the Mahoning Valley and Youngstown area, providing rewarding careers, giving back to the community and, of course, delivering unparalleled commercial transportation services to businesses nationwide.
Carrying on this legacy in 2023 and beyond, Aim’s leadership is thrilled to reinforce their commitment to Aim’s employees, customers and the region by announcing a $1.7 million renovation project currently underway at Aim headquarters in Girard, OH.
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.
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.
