Redwood Logistics (Redwood) has announced the appointment of Scott Cousins as the company’s new chief technology officer.
In his new role, Cousins is tasked with designing, developing and supporting the technology solutions required to drive Redwood Logistics’ operating excellence, innovation and growth, the company said.
Cousins is expected to provide the experience and leadership needed to continue Redwood’s development of technology services for the freight management industry, Redwood said.
