Bruce P. Berger, a 28 year employee of Aim Integrated Logistics, has recently been promoted to the position of Senior Vice President. “Bruce heads all operational functions of Aim Integrated Logisitcs – He’s done so for many years. He is a strong leader and has been a crucial part in Aim Integrated’s growth and success” says Chief Operating Officer, David Gurska.
Bruce got his start in the military: After serving four years in the United States Navy, he received his degree from Kent State University. His logistics career began as a dispatcher for Ohio Fast Freight before moving on to Duff Truck Lines as an operations supervisor. During his ten years at Duff Truck Lines he was promoted to terminal manager.
When the opportunity surfaced to join the Aim team, he decided it was a tremendous career opportunity as AIM was just beginning to enter the logistics market. Bruce’s efforts have been instrumental in growing the business from the ground floor to a multi-million dollar asset based logistic company with over 500 employees.
He is an avid cyclist, Cleveland Browns and Ohio State fan and enjoys a relaxing round of golf. His current residence is located in Youngstown, OH where he lives with his wife Cheryl. They hope to retire someday to Orlando where they own a home to be closer to their daughter, Danielle.

Aim Transportation Solutions is the very definition of a family operated business in the Mahoning Valley. Aim is run by Tom Fleming, Chairman and CEO and his two sons Scott Fleming and Geoffrey Fleming, but Aim’s roots reach even deeper into the Fleming family.
In 1903, Tom Fleming’s grandfather, J.V. McNicholas, geared-up the horse and buggy and began hauling meat and luggage from the rail yards in Youngstown, Ohio. A few years later, J.V. McNicholas’ horse and buggy grew into a successful hauling business.
After deregulation in 1980, McNicholas Transportation branched into leasing trucks. Tom Fleming managed this division, known as Aim Leasing Company, and their 25 trucks. In 1982, Tom Fleming purchased the leasing subsidiary - Aim moved to 1500 Trumbull Road in Girard, Ohio, which continues to stand as Aim’s headquarters today.
Aim, one of the largest truck leasing companies in the country employs over 1,200 individuals nationwide, maintains over 11,000 vehicles and oversees upwards of 100 operations. Tom, Chairman and CEO, Scott, President of Aim Services, and Geoffrey, Vice President of Purchasing all work out that very location.
