TRAC names new head of its roadside assistance subsidiary

TRAC Intermodal, the Princeton-based chassis pool management company, has named a new CEO for its roadside assistance unit, it announced this week.

Kenneth Forster will become CEO of FYX Fleet Roadside Assistance, effective Feb. 8. The TRAC subsidiary provides emergency services for the intermodal and over-the-road trucking industries.

Forster, who most recently was president and chief operating officer at MODE Transportation, replaces the retiring Rodney Goderwis, and will report to TRAC CEO Daniel Walsh. The title of CEO is a new one, as Goderwis served as vice president overseeing the FYX unit.

“I’m eager for the opportunity to help FYX build on the impressive reputation it has earned for service excellence and technology leadership,” Forster said in a prepared statement. “Demand in the intermodal and trucking sectors is at an all-time high, which makes this an ideal time to optimize FYX’s many assets and take it to the next level.”

FYX, formerly the TRAC Interstar unit, was rebranded in 2019.
