Adam Amorose Joins RoadOne IntermodaLogistics, Enhances Safety Commitment

– New Safety VP to drive safety initiatives including 2016 ELD implementation –

Randolph, Massachusetts, December 16, 2015 – RoadOne IntermodaLogistics, a leading single source intermodal, distribution, and logistics service company, announces today that Adam Amorose has joined RoadOne as Vice President of Safety. In this position, Adam is responsible for the safe and efficient operation of all RoadOne drivers, as well as the driver recruiting and retention programs. He is also responsible for all FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) and all Department of Homeland Security requirements such as CSA (Compliance, Safety and Accountability) scores, safety audits, and C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) certifications.

Adam comes to RoadOne with over 15 years of experience in transportation and distribution safety management and has interacted with multiple Fortune 500 businesses. In the past, he has added significant value to safety management, risk and compliance programs at companies such as USA Truck, Greatwide Logistics Services, and UPS.

At RoadOne, Adam will lead the company’s ELD (Electronic Logging Device) program for all RoadOne trucks, which will be completed by the end of 2016, a full year ahead of the date that ELD compliance officially goes into effect, which is December 18, 2017. The purpose of the FMCSA’s (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) ELD rule is to improve safety on U.S. highways. ELD’s synchronize with a truck engine to automatically record driving time to simplify recording a driver’s hours of service (HOS). RoadOne is proactively instituting the ELD program ahead of the deadline to ensure they’re 100% compliant and the program is effectively in place to protect their customers’ shipments.

Adam will continue to build on RoadOne’s work to achieve first-rate FMCSA CSA driver scores. CSA is the FMCSA’s safety compliance and enforcement program that collects roadside inspection and crash information for large truck and bus carriers.
“Safety is a critically important aspect of our business. We are pleased to have Adam join us to further enhance our current programs and bring increased attention and excellence to our safety initiatives, compliance and risk management. I’m confident Adam’s professional expertise will be a valuable contribution to RoadOne’s ongoing growth and S3-single, source solution vision,” said Ken Kellaway, CEO of RoadOne IntermodaLogistics.
