CRST International has formed two new operating companies, CRST Dedicated Services Inc. and CRST Capacity Solutions Inc. The companies will become part of the asset-based CRST Carrier Group, which oversees CRST Van Expedited, CRST Malone and CRST Premier Transport.

CRST Dedicated Services will be headquartered in Eldridge, Iowa, and CRST Capacity Solutions will be headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

CRST also announced several organizational changes. Dave Rusch, previously president of CRST Carrier Group and chief operating officer of CRST Van Expedited, will be moving from day-to-day management of CRST Van Expedited to focus solely on oversight and strategic direction of the Carrier Group.

Mike Gannon, president of Birmingham, Ala.-based CRST Malone, will replace Rusch as president of CRST Van Expedited. Scott Shephard will become president of CRST Malone; Shephard previously was president of Economy Transport, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Universal Truckload Services.
