Founder and Chairman
Paul Thompson is the vision behind Transportation Insight. It all began in the fall of 1999 when Paul embarked on creating a full-service, client-focused company providing custom-tailored supply chain solutions. He envisioned a company based on principles of integrity, excellence and community that would transform the logistics industry. Having spent the previous 15 years developing pricing models for some of the largest motor carriers in the United States, Paul was already a recognized innovator. With his passion for giving back to the community through organizations like Samaritan’s Feet and Ten Thousand Homes, it’s easy to understand why Transportation Insight is intensely focused on service to its clients, its associates and its community. Paul holds four executive officer/board-level positions and founded or co-founded six highly successful companies in the transportation/logistics industry. He serves on the board of several non-profit organizations, including Hickory Christian Academy, Appalachian State University’s Walker College of Business and the Charlotte Foundation YMCA. Paul is an Arkansas native with an Industrial Engineering degree from the University of Arkansas. He is also a devoted husband and father of four.
