Calhoun Truck Lines, a leader in intermodal shipping and trucking transportation throughout the Midwest, is pleased to announce the hiring of regional transportation veteran Dennis Figgins to head up its Omaha terminal. Dennis will be responsible for improving Calhoun’s position in the Omaha market in 2013.
Dennis Figgins brings a unique skillset to the management group at Calhoun. He is well-known throughout the Midwest intermodal transportation industry, and has a long history with trucks and transportation. He has been in the transportation industry for over 25 years and has spent the last 13 in the intermodal marketplace.
Dennis started with one truck when working as an owner-operator for Nebraska Furniture Mart in 1986. He later became a fleet owner, transferred to the intermodal transportation business in 1999, and moved into an office management position a year later.
Since 2000, Dennis worked as Terminal Manager and Regional Manager for Omaha-based Mason and Dixon, one of Calhoun’s larger competitors in the Midwest. He was involved in sales there, as well as overseeing multiple terminals for the firm.
“I’m extremely excited to have Dennis aboard with our company and I know that he’ll be a great addition to our management team”, said Brent Bois, owner of Calhoun Truck Lines. “I like the fact that Dennis once held the position of owner operator. That helps bring a different perspective to an environment where good owner operators are hard to find. Dennis’ well rounded background in the intermodal industry and his knowledge of the Omaha market puts us in a great position for growth in 2013,” said Bois.
This is the second appointment for new terminal heads for Calhoun Truck Lines in recent weeks. The company announced the appointment of another industry vet Enrique Segoviano for its Chicago terminal in recent weeks.
Calhoun Truck Lines has four trucking operations (Detroit, Chicago, Minneapolis, Omaha) throughout the Midwest. Each operation is fully equipped to handle your business’s intermodal trucking needs. Calhoun is dedicated to delivering high levels of service that consistently meet customers’ expectations. We maintain a professional work environment for our employees and are committed to a safety conscious truck fleet to share the roads with fellow motorists.
