BELLEVUE, Wash., Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Radiant Logistics, Inc. (NYSE MKT: RLGT), a domestic and international logistics services company, today announced that COO Bart Wilson of Radiant Logistics' dedicated line haul network, On Time Express, Inc. ("On Time"), has been elected as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Arizona Trucking Association ("ATA") for a two-year term ending in 2015.
The ATA is a leading advocate for the trucking industry that has supported its member's legislative and regulatory interests for over 75 years. The ATA provides members with services and information that increase profits and help maintain compliance with the thousands of laws and regulations that govern the trucking industry. This includes industry education training, safety recognition programs, drug and alcohol testing services, legislative advocacy and more.
"I'm honored to take on this new leadership role with the ATA," remarked Wilson. "The industry is facing a number of challenges that we've dealt with firsthand at On Time. EPA emission standards, fuel prices and government mandated insurance all impact the bottom-line of small business truckers and independents so we're seeing a lot of these companies moving into larger private fleets. On Time has transitioned our dedicated fleet service offerings to strategically align with the issues affecting these operators which helps relieve the margin pressure that accompanies these changes. As the ATA Chairman, I will continue to be pro-active on safety, regulatory and legislative concerns that impact our industry."
Radiant's Founder and CEO Bohn Crain commented: "We are very proud to have Bart working in service of the ATA and our carrier partners. Bart brings over 30 years of industry experience to the ATA and has served as an active board member for the past six years. His passion for excellence and dedication to continuous improvement and the principles of Total Quality Management will serve him well in this role."
