APL Logistics has appointed Dave Howland as its new vice president of land transport services.
Howland joins from Schneider National, where he served as vice president of rail management.

In his new role, Howland will concentrate on expanding APL Logistics North America domestic transport capabilities, focusing on land transport services and the link between customers' international and domestic cargo movements.

"We're moving forward to re-position APL Logistics in the domestic intermodal markets and in building greater coverage in our land-based transportation services to better serve our international, contract logistics and domestic customers," said Jim McAdam, APL Logistics president.

Prior to joining Schneider, Howland was a manager in intermodal rail and truck brokerage with C.H. Robinson and Burlington Northern Santa Fe.

APL Logistics said it plans to significantly increase the company's involvement in the U.S. domestic rail business.

Howland will be based at APL Logistics' North America headquarters in Phoenix.
