Atlas World Group, Inc. has hired Matt Van der Linde to serve as vice president and general manager of its AWG Logistics
, which will provide customers with a broader suite of logistic services.
The Evansville, Ind.-based firm said Van der Linde will also oversee the Atlas Specialized Transport Group, an asset-based, less-than-truckload carrier of AWG Logistics.
