Anderson Trucking Service on Wednesday, Oct. 10, announced its purchase of the assets of Waylon Transport of Devon, Alberta, Canada, located near Edmonton. Terms were not released.

“We are excited about the service possibilities for our customers that can be provided by the combined efforts of Waylon and ATS,and are pleased to welcome Waylon to the Anderson Family of Companies,” said Brent Anderson, vice president of Heavy Haul and Wind Energy Services at ATS, based in St. Cloud, Minn.

Waylon, which operates 22 trucks and 40 open trailers along with a freight brokerage, was founded in 1982 as an intraprovincial carrier. The company handles both international and domestic distribution needs, as well as transportation of Alberta oil field equipment and supplies. Its proximity to roadways, railroad yards and the Edmonton International Airport provides easy access for loading and unloading both imports and exports, ATS said.

“I am very excited about the new and expanding path the company is taking and am looking forward to the upcoming opportunities and integration of the companies while maintaining Waylon’s identity and the high level of service we are known for,” said Blaine Campbell, Waylon general manager.
