Aim Transportation Solutions delivers unparalleled commercial fleet solutions to business of any size in any industry. But there’s one defining quality that truly sets Aim apart from its competitors: the close, one-on-one relationships we forge with our valued customers. That kind of close-knit and trusted connection was exactly what top-notch food distributor Kaleel Brothers was looking for in their dedicated fleet provider.
Shipping ain’t easy. Managing inbound and outbound shipments, especially for high-volume businesses, can be a nightmare. Shippers who depend on multiple carrier services understand this painfully well. They’ve lived and breathed how disjointed (and maddening) this process can be: reaching out to numerous carriers, confirming capacity, requesting quotes, checking statuses, confirming deliveries and the list goes on. Naturally, this decentralized process can—and does—yield inconsistent quality of service and cost.

Ten years of business partnership is a message unto itself. It’s one that demonstrates value, satisfaction and an ongoing mutually beneficial relationship. On that, Aim Transportation Solutions recently hit a landmark 10-year anniversary with one of many of its long-term customers: Hensley Beverage Company. Starting in 2010, Hensley has been benefitting from Aim’s ProShop service, a unique offering in which Aim assumes the responsibilities (and liability) of a business’s on-site fleet maintenance shop, and, in turn, the customer receives all the benefits of Aim’s decades of maintenance experience as well as its vast cost-cutting resource network.
What underpins the years-long partnership between Aim and Michael Lewis Company (MLCo)? One word: Family.
Both companies are privately held and family owned, which, as Adam Kunz, manager at MLCo, suggests, forms a unique bond, one built on trust. “That family connection is very important to us,” he said, “something we hang our hats on.”
In 2013, Columbus Vegetable Oils made a business decision the company’s general manager, John Healy, would classify as one marked by peace of mind and reliability: signing a full-service leasing contract with Aim.
“It’s a win-win,” Healy said. “They give me so much ease-of-mind that I know they’re watching my trucks, and I don’t have to worry about it.”
Healy goes on to mention the added value like scheduled maintenance, shop proximity and the overall dependability, like that of his salesmen, Aim Senior Account Executive John Matthews.
Longtime and valued Aim Integrated Logistics customer Family Express, an award-winning Indiana convenience store chain, was looking for a way to overhaul their delivery process. They had a primary goal in mind, which was to improve the quality of life for their drivers through safety and scheduling, triggering a collaborative effort to reimagine their delivery process and put it into action.
The success of Wincore, a manufacturer of best-in-class windows and doors, is borne out of a single, indispensable vision: create great, long-lasting customer relationships by creating great, long-lasting products. In that, Wincore and Aim, while committed to different industries, share an identical customer-first focus. It’s this united allegiance to the customer that drove Wincore to entrust Aim with its reputation.
