AGX Freight, LLC., a North Florida-based provider of non-asset transportation and logistics services, predicts a strong freight market for 2021. “As the economy and pandemic conditions continue to improve, we expect to see an increasing demand for transportation services in the coming year. We have set $100 million as our target gross revenues in 2021,” said Mike Williams, President and Chief Operating Officer, AGX Freight. “To help us get there, we have added leadership talent to achieve our business goals in the coming year.”
Chris Reeves has joined the company as Chief Commercial Officer. In his new role, Reeves will lead the expansion of AGX Freight’s service offerings through a nationwide network of sales and operations professionals. He has more than 20 years of experience in the transportation and logistics industry, holding management positions with Blue-Grace Logistics, US Xpress and, most recently, as Senior Director of Revenue Management at Forward Air. Reeves has helped build third-party logistics organizations, like AGX, in the areas of sales, pricing, and operations.
John Phipps has also joined the company as Vice President, Intermodal Operations. Phipps’ responsibilities include managing intermodal operations, capitalizing on relationships with railroads, shippers, and intermodal marketing companies (IMCs). He brings more than 30 years of experience in the intermodal truck segment, most recently serving as head of sales and marketing for intermodal operations at Sunteck/TTS. Before that, Phipps held senior management positions with Blue Dolphin Express, All Points Transportation and Savannah Intermodal. Phipps is a retired United States Marine, and we thank him for his service.
“We’re excited to have both Chris and John join our organization as their collective experience and talents will help put AGX in a prime position to capitalize on growing freight demand as we scale the size and scope of our network,” added Williams. We’re now well-poised for the opportunities that will lie ahead in 2021.”
Both Reeves and Phipps will be based out of AGX Freight’s corporate office in Jacksonville, Fla.
