Intermodal transportation provider Celtic International has launched Celtic Xpress, a new division that will offer expedited highway freight services and less-than-truckload shipping within North America. The announcement was made by Richard P. Hyland, president and chief executive officer of Celtic International.

Celtic Xpress is an agent-based freight service that utilizes small fleets and individual owner-operators to move truckload, LTL, van, flatbed and specialized shipments. Celtic Xpress will operate out of the Celtic International headquarters in Orland Park, Ill.

Logistics industry veteran John O’Toole will head up Celtic Xpress as senior vice president. He will be assisted by Wendall W. Ladner and Thomas F. O’Donnell as assistant vice presidents of business development.
