2012 Beginnings

2012 is off to a fast start and Altom Transport, Inc had a great year in 2011. With our Gulf Coast operations now reaching new heights in size and scope similar to our primary hub in Chicago, we are pleased with the growth and additional customers that have joined up with us. We are also very pleased with the many company drivers and owner operators that have joined us in the last 6 months. In addition we have welcomed many new faces in operations and administrative areas to help support our growth and continued success. In 2012 we will continue to invest in new equipment and personnel. We invested in many different types of trailers to meet the various customer demands and that trend is continuing currently. We have new trailers coming in weekly to support all areas of growth around all terminal operations. 2012 will also see a shift in our business location in the Gulf Coast as we look to move to a larger facility to meet our current needs and future growth.

We have contracted with Pegaus Trans Tech for the Transflo management system. This system allows for drivers to stop at any Pilot, Flying J, or Loves truck stop and easily scan and send all paperwork immediately to our offices for dissemination. This allows for immediate billing and subsequent faster processing of driver payments. In addition we have begun our rollout of the Peoplenet Software systems that electronically tender loads right to the driver in their tractor. With more customers requiring EDI transmission of data and real time accessability of information, this is an important addition to our business operations. This system also allows for accurate transmission of information to the drivers with hands on interaction that helps eliminate possible errors. The rollout of this system and additional training will be phased in starting in the first quarter of this year.
