Greer has over 25 years of industry experience and most recently served as the president of BNSF Logistics. He has also held senior leadership roles with Ryder Logistics, FedEx, Greatwide Logistics Services, and Newgistics.

Omnitracs is focusing on emerging industry trends, such as big data analytics and artificial intelligence, and the company said it expects Greer’s industry background and technical knowledge to be invaluable in achieving those plans.

“The shipping and logistics industry is experiencing rapid change with the opportunities created by new, data-powered technologies,” said Greer. “Our infrastructure and talent make us uniquely capable to lead the industry in the development and deployment of new products and technologies that will grow our company and unlock tremendous value for Omnitracs’ customers.”

The company also recognized Graham’s contributions to Omnitracs, which acquired a number of companies, developed new products, and built "a culture of growth and customer service" during his tenure.

“I am proud of all we have been able to accomplish over the last four years, and I am confident that Ray is the perfect CEO for the next stage in Omnitracs’ growth,” said Graham. “His technical expertise, understanding of the market, and his vision for the future of shipping and logistics will build on the strong leadership position Omnitracs has built in the market, taking the company to new heights.”
