US transportation and logistics company TFI International has announced the appointment of Kal Atwal to the position of executive vice-president (EVP), responsible for the company’s US final mile divisions. Atwal will maintain his current responsibilities as president of TForce Final Mile Canada.
“Kal has been an integral part of the ongoing TForce Final Mile Canada success story, and his promotion to EVP underscores our appreciation for all that he has accomplished since joining TFI just three years ago,” commented Alain Bédard, chairman, president and CEO of TFI. “I am excited at the prospect of Kal bringing to our US operations his extensive industry experience, and confident his expertise will continue to serve as a significant asset to our rapidly growing company.”
Earlier this year, TFI announced the acquisition of select assets of BeavEx and Guardian Medical Logistics (GML), which have been incorporated into its US last mile division, TForce Final Mile.
BeavEx serves the final mile delivery requirements of the financial, healthcare, retail, industrial and manufacturing sectors, offering same-day, next-day and on-demand home delivery services. Its logistics capabilities include final mile, crossdocking and distribution services.
“This is a superb transaction not only for TFI, but for the valued customers of BeavEx and GML who will continue to receive outstanding service and support as part of the TFI circle of customers,” Bédard noted. “For TFI, these select assets are an outstanding fit with our existing network, bringing additional revenues, as well as logistics and e-commerce expertise, route density and geographic reach to TForce Final Mile.”
