Aim Transportation Solutions, a provider of commercial vehicles and services for more than 50 years, welcomes Tom Reda as Vice President of Business Development for Aim Integrated Logistics. In this role, he will ensure the ongoing growth and operational excellence of Aim’s logistics division, which partners with companies to maximize the efficiency of their entire transportation operation through highly trained and dedicated service personnel, best-in-class drivers, and efficient, top-of-the-line vehicles.
Reda brings with him over two decades of transportation expertise, spending the latter 15 of those years with Cardinal Logistics. There he held various leadership roles in both operations and business development before his tenure with the company ended as a Senior Vice President. Reda’s experience includes multi-client management from final mile and home delivery to food service and chemical solutions to everything in between. This position required a vast knowledge and skillset to provide unique services tailored to each client’s needs.
Prior to Cardinal Logistics, Reda spent three years as a Logistics Center Supervisor with Penske Logistics. Here he oversaw several functions, such as scheduling, call center response, and transportation management. While serving in this role, he dealt directly with a large manufacturing company in northeast Ohio, and these logistical responsibilities are where his understanding and development of a strong carrier-customer relationship began.
“We feel that Tom will be a fantastic asset to the team,” said Dave Gurska, Aim Integrated Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President. “One of his biggest strengths is building solid, mutually beneficial customer partnerships, which is what we’re all about at Aim Integrated Logistics. He’ll be a great fit with the company and our overall mission.”
“Aim is a best-in-class provider that fits all or part of a business’s transportation needs, regardless of size, scope or industry,” said Reda. “I’m excited for the opportunity to offer their full array of services, which is exciting because it allows for more opportunities to partner with clients on a flexible solution that really underscores their individual needs, all while positioning us for continued growth.”
Reda holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Indiana Wesleyan University. He’s a member of The Traffic Club of Cleveland (connecting transportation professionals to address the latest happenings within the industry) and the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (committed to connecting, developing and educating the world’s logistics and supply chain management professionals).
Reda lives in Poland, OH, with his wife, Rachelle, and their three kids. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, volunteering with his kids’ extracurricular activities, and leading an active lifestyle.
“Everyone at Aim has been very welcoming,” said Reda. “I’m thankful and excited to be part of a team filled with so many industry professionals.”
