American Transportation is a transportation service provider that aims to serve as a one-stop shop for all their clients’ transportation needs.

CEO of American Transportation Dan Wilson explains that since his ownership group took over the company in 2015, it has fully been revamped. Whereas the company only had 20 fleet vehicles and one location at the time, it has expanded to a fleet of 70 vehicles and 5 locations in just five years. Wilson further states that their workforce is expected to grow from 50-80 employees to over 100 after the COVID era.

According to Wilson, American Transportation went looking for a digital solution like Connecteam because assigning drivers manually is time-consuming, strenuous, and leaves room for errors.
