The company has opened an office in Portland within the Oregon Trucking Association premises, and appointed five Portland-based staff. Rob Paasch, Ed Prisco, and Jeff Bowden have joined EROAD Inc. as senior sales executives, while Angela Melville and Jennifer Allbritton have been appointed to administration/customer support roles.
The company’s launch of its commercial service in Oregon follows a favourable audit of its solution by the Oregon State Government.
EROAD Inc. has a number of Oregon-based customers who have been using the company’s weight mileage tax solution since taking part in an EROAD pilot in conjunction with the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon Trucking Association in 2012-13. The company has formed a marketing alliance with the Oregon Trucking Association.
“We’re very pleased to be launching in Oregon with such an outstanding team,” EROAD Inc. President, Brian Michie said. “We look forward to working with and supporting the OTA and Oregon motor carriers from our Portland base.”
