Atlas Logistics Names New Vice President of Business Development

May 26, 2015
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (April 2, 2015) — Atlas Logistics Inc., a full-service logistics provider and subsidiary of Atlas World Group, Inc., announces today that Matt Van der Linde has rejoined the company as vice president of business development. In his new role, Van der Linde will strategically expand Atlas Logistics’ service offerings to increase revenue and expand operating margins.

For the past year, Van der Linde served as Florida East Coast Railway’s vice president of logistics. Prior to that, he worked as vice president and general manager of Atlas Logistics (formerly known as AWG Logistics, Inc.) from 2012-2014. He also spent over 10 years with The Suddath Companies, holding numerous leadership positions in logistics, relocation and transportation services.

Van der Linde’s areas of expertise include business and strategic development, general management, supply chain solutions development, freight brokerage, carrier development and profit and loss management.

Van der Linde returns to Atlas Logistics during a noteworthy transition period for the company, as it has recently adopted a new brand identity and strategic direction to help to better distinguish the brand. Together with Atlas-affiliated companies, Atlas Logistics now provides a significantly broader suite of padded van fleet, supply chain management, project management and 3PL logistics services to better meet the needs of Atlas customers.

“It is our pleasure to welcome Matt back to our team,” said Phil Wahl, vice president and general manager of Atlas Logistics. “His in-depth knowledge of our company and the overall industry will be critical as we navigate the market during this exciting time of change.”

“Atlas has always been a proven leader in the logistics industry, and I look forward to working with the company’s talented team again,” said Van der Linde. “Together, we will expand our business development efforts to increase revenue in our core service offerings through our agent network, direct sales team and strategic partnerships. Our goal is to become a one-source logistics provider to our clients by providing them comprehensive supply chain solutions.”
