Founded in 1982 by Harry Stout III, two generations of family management and an exceptional employee base at Stout’s Transportation are driving the future of motor coach travel in the Northeast. Company President, Tim Stout, along with brothers, Shawn, who heads business development for the medical transportation division, and Harry, Stout’s safety director, manage the 100-plus employee, family-owned business. This ground transportation and tour operation business has been built on talents, skills, and a team of a well-seasoned staff, augmented by a cutting-edge fleet and a customer-focused culture that positions their brand ahead of their competition.
The 60-year Trenton-based Stout’s has locations throughout the state of New Jersey and serves key markets within the tri-state New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania area. Their predominantly Van Hool fleet consists of 76 vehicles: 38- to 56-passenger motor coaches for tour and charter excursions; 29-passenger shuttle transport vehicles; 16- to 20-passenger para-transit specialty vehicles for private contract service, and DOT-approved, school and transit buses.
Since 2015, Stout has worked with the NJSBDC at TCNJ consultants, receiving assistance and training in a wide range of areas and services, including: Financial recordkeeping design and reports; financial report analysis using QuickBooks; digital media/website design and marketing; catalog design and marketing; company branding; and extensive industry/ geographic/demographic/psychographic market research. The NJSBDC at TCNJ is proud to have served as a “go to” feedback resource for Stout’s Transportation on operational issues from marketing to financial operational issues.
As the business evolves, Stout’s leadership continues to focus on best business practices and technology improvements that will enhance operational efficiencies. Their latest implementation of the Zonar fleet management mobile platform is critical in helping the company remotely monitor fleet and driver performance, and enhance fleet maintenance. Additionally, the system supports automated processes, effectively reducing paperwork and record storage, which are also key priorities within Stout’s “green culture.” Their state-of-the-art 8,000-square-foot office building features energy-efficient utilities and an environmentally friendly heating system utilizing waste oil as fuel.
With a strong and growing infrastructure, healthy market share, and sales and marketing efforts focused on new and emerging markets, the company is actively seeking growth, and the timing is perfect for acquisition. Stout’s Transportation has positioned itself as a leader in the transportation industry, well prepared for the next 60 years of growth and expansion.
