  • Phoenix-Mesa, AZ (1888PressRelease) February 29, 2012 - Treating people fairly while continually evolving their business model and embracing new technologies are the cornerstones which Andy Ahern, CEO of Ahern and Associates, Ltd., has abided by over the last twenty-five years in business. This simple formula has served Ahern and Associates well and has provided the firm with twenty-five years of steady growth coupled with increasing market share.

    Ahern and Associates are transportation analysts whose entire practice focuses on the transportation logistics and warehousing industries. Fifty percent of Ahern's business is involved in transportation mergers and acquisitions while the other half concentrates on improving the operating efficiencies of trucking and logistics companies in addition to providing business and successor plans, operational and employee reviews and sales and marketing programs.

    At the core of Ahern's long standing success are his employees. Ahern's unique services are performed by skilled operational auditors who are generally former Presidents and CEO's of transportation and logistics companies who have retired early with their golden parachutes and don't necessarily need to work, but still want to remain active within transportation. It's this kind of intimate knowledge supported by the most competent front office staff in the industry which has propelled Ahern to the front of the pack, leaving behind only a trail of satisfied customers.

    Ahern takes pride in revolutionized his craft by staying on the leading edge of technology in an industry where it's not always commonplace. Beginning in 1997, Ahern composed and manually distributed his first Ahern Advisory newsletter to a humble base of readers; that same newsletter is now digitally delivered to an astounding 400,000+ monthly subscribers. In addition, Ahern often receives praise for his use of weekly video podcasts as well as regular blogging and social media.
