TORONTO, Ont. — Industry veteran Ray Camball has been hired as head of Project Innovation Transport’s (PIT) new Toronto division.
PIT is a project of FPInnovations and is best known for its hosting of the twice-yearly Energotest, which tests the validity of fuel-saving devices and technologies.
PIT currently has 27 members, including some of Canada’s biggest fleets. PIT director Yves Provencher said Camball was chosen to head its Ontario expansion because “he came highly recommended by our members in Ontario.”
Camball has 30 years experience in the trucking industry and is an engineer and MBA holder.
“I am joining, because PIT looks like an interesting group that can make some good contributions to our industry,” Camball told Trucknews.com. “I like the fact that the members dictate the priorities and that the people at PIT seem competent and eager to do whatever they can to help members find practical solutions to the many challenges and opportunities in trucking. The members tend to be industry leaders and innovators and I look forward to working with them to try to find better ways to transport goods.”
Camball said he’s eager to work with fleets to determine which fuel-saving technologies work best.
“I think that the whole industry can benefit from the work that is done to improve fuel efficiency and by giving fleet managers the option to easily access a group of seasoned engineers if they want back-up or a second opinion on tough technical decisions, new products or on problems,” Camball added.
He began his new role Tuesday and is available at 416-705-1881 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
