Riels joins ATA Board of Directors


Alan Riels of Dedicated Logistics, Inc. is the newest member of the Arkansas Trucking Association Board of Directors.

Riels is the president and CEO of Dedicated Logistic, LLC, a Crossett-based freight carrier with over 60 trucks.  At the Nov. 3 ATA Board of Directors meeting, Riels was nominated and affirmed to fill the vacant position, previously held by the late Wayne Smith of Wayne Smith Trucking, who passed in May 2017 after serving on the board for over 20 years.

Riels started Dedicated Logistics in June 2002 with his mother Ruth Riels. He is a graduate of University of Arkansas-Monticello and also owns Mechanical Solutions, a truck repair shop in Crossett.
