Schneider Logistics, an international logistics provider and part of the Schneider National enterprise, announced Monday, Aug. 29 that it had completed its acquisition of American Port Services, a U.S. provider of port transloading/deconsolidation, warehousing and distribution services.

The deal, terms of which aren’t being disclosed, links the resources of the nation’s largest full truckload provider with American Port Services’ transloading and port dray operation.
