TCG names chairman
Transportation Costing Group, a company that provides activity-based cost analysis for the transportation industry, on Monday said Lana Batts will serve as the company's chairman.
A 30-year veteran of the trucking industry and former president of the Truckload Carriers Association from 1994 to 2000, Batts is expected to lead the company's drive into the truckload sector.
TCG was founded in 1982 to provide less-than-truckload carriers with activity-based individual shipment cost models to help them succeed in the then newly deregulated trucking environment, the company said in a statement.
'I started this company with the intention of assisting LTL carriers become more profitable,' said TCG President Ken Manning. 'We recently expanded our product line to include truckload carriers, and Lana's experience in that market sector is exactly what we need to give this new product the same chance at being as successful as our less-than-truckload product.'
