By Alan Dorich

When electrical utilities in the Great Plains, Rocky Mountain and Southwest regions need top-notch coal and transportation services, they know they can rely on Western Fuels Association (WFA). “We provide a good value to our members,” Manager-Fuel, Transportation and Technical Services Kenn Gray declares.

“We are experts in coal transportation and procurement,” he continues. “That allows our members to use our capabilities instead of having their own people on staff that may not have as much background in transportation and fuel procurement as we do.”

Angelica Garcia-Dunn didn’t have much experience in the logistics industry in 2003, when she was a branch manager for a well-known bank in Houston. It wasn’t until she became a financial service advisor that she was introduced to a small woman-owned logistics company that specialized in ocean-to-air cargo from Venezuela. 

Garcia-Dunn was offered a sales position with that company, and within a few years she had amassed a strong base of knowledge about freight forwarding that got her another job with a large flatbed carrier and allowed her to open an office for it in Houston. With that experience under her belt, Garcia-Dunn was inspired to go into business for herself, founding AIM Global Logistics in 2009. By 2012, AIM was named the Emerging Business of the Year by the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
