Celadon Trucking Services on Thursday, June 7, announced that it has agreed to purchase a portion of the operating equipment of Hiner Transport, based in Huntington, Ind. The terms and conditions of the transaction were not disclosed.
“As with previous acquisitions, the Hiner deal provides quality customer gains, incremental density in key traffic lanes and access to an experienced driver pool,” said Paul Will, president and chief operating officer of Indianapolis-based Celadon. Will said Hiner had a solid, core group of customers and drivers.
“We expect to fully integrate these groups within our operations in a prompt, efficient manner,” he said. “Further, we are extremely confident in our ability to enhance the service to Hiner’s former customers with our upgraded equipment fleet, additional capacity, leading edge technology and outstanding safety record.”
