Tim Stout, President
Founded in 1982 by Harry Stout III, two generations of family management and an exceptional employee base, Stout’s Transportation is driving the future of motorcoach 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/tour operation has been built on talents, skills, and team of a well-seasoned staff, a cutting-edge fleet and customer-focused culture to position their brand at the head 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 area including New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Their predominantly Van Hool fleet consists of 76 vehicles: 38- to 56-passenger motorcoaches for tour and charter excursions; 29-passenger shuttle transport vehicles; 16- to 20-passenger para-transit specialty vehicles for private contract service, DOT approved, school and transit buses.
“Success in business requires learning as fast as the world is changing. The best way to do that is to leverage the expertise of others. The SBDC is an assemblage of experts; in consulting, training, advising – and in all facets of business; Marketing, financing, operations, economic research. We have only touched the surface of the resources. They are invaluable and we hope to leverage their resources for many years to come.” – Tim Stout
“Our team is very creative in their sales and customer service strategies,” continues Tim. “Our main goal is to create an unparalleled customer experience, by looking at new ways to improve our service and expand our market reach.” Since 2015, Stout has worked with SBDC consultants for counsel and training for design of financial recordkeeping and reports; financial report analysis using Quickbooks, marketing using digital media/website design, catalog design, marketing, positioning branding and extensive marketing research for their Industry / geographic / demographic / and psychographic markets as well as the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry.
The SBDC at TCNJ has served as a “go to” feedback resource for Stout’s Transportation on operational issues from marketing of new transportation to acquisition, industry software to financial operational issues. Stout’s Transportation has positioned itself as a leader in the transportation industry prepared for the next 60 years of growth and expansion. An excellent article published on July 10, 2017, gives an excellent overview of the company, which is very compelling.
