KANSAS CITY — American Logistics Company (ALC) today announced several key developments related to the company’s growing ALC Schools student transportation division. The announcement was made today at the 44th annual conference and trade show of the National Association of Pupil Transportation (NAPT)—the nation’s premier school transportation conference.
The company is now managing student transportation programs for 300 school districts across the country. As well, the company has appointed Gregg Prettyman to the position of executive vice president of the ALC Schools division, following a reorganization that will allow ALC to put forward new and additional dedicated resources to technology development and customer service for school districts.
Prettyman—a 10-year ALC veteran and current member of the executive management team – alongside his team, has been instrumental in helping develop and optimize the ALC Schools alternative student transportation model. This team has worked diligently and effectively to direct ALC’s response to start-ups and to scale alternative student transportation programs across the country.
“Our revamped ALC Schools division underscores our commitment to our valued individual school and school district customers,” said Gregg Prettyman, executive vice president, ALC Schools. “We are very proud of our 99% customer retention rate. ALC Schools will continue to ensure and deliver the highest level of customer service and technology to serve the students we transport,” he said.
With more than 20 years of experience, ALC is recognized as the leader in alternative student transportation solutions and route-optimization technology for school districts. ALC’s Schools division has been and will continue to supplement districts’ transportation programs using SUVs, minivans, wheelchair accessible vans and sedans to assist in transporting ESE/special needs students, McKinney-Vento, ESSA, and out-of-district students, as well as hard-to-serve and multi-district trips.
“While many vendors are jumping into the alternative student transportation market, ALC has been the true pioneer and most trusted leader in the space,” said ALC CEO Craig Puckett. “Our focus on school districts is a staple of ALC and we will continue to innovate. As the student transportation landscape evolves, we’ll continue to lead in providing best-in-class technology and logistical solutions for safe, reliable, and high-quality student transportation for school districts across the country.”
