Chattanooga-based Access America Transport announced the opening of its newest branch near Mobile, Ala., after completing the second quarter on pace for record total sales in 2013.
“As we continue to expand our presence in the Southeastern United States, making an investment in the Mobile-Pensacola area is a perfect fit,” said AAT President Chad Eichelberger. “Our Gulf Coast office will position us to serve the transportation needs of one of the hottest regions for manufacturing and industrial growth in the country.”
Access America Transport has tapped local entrepreneur and 10-year transportation professional Jason Balius to launch the Daphne, Ala. office, which is the company’s tenth branch.
“AAT’s 11-year rise to being one of the country’s most trusted transportation providers is the result of having the best employees in our industry, “ said Mr. Eichelberger. “Jason embodies the kind of experienced leader we look for when we enter a new market.”
Sarah Stewart will be joining Mr. Balius as the logistics coordinator, bringing a background in both transportation and talent acquisition.
Sales are expected to exceed $500 million in 2013.
