DMT Trucking, a subsidiary of Birmingham, Alabama-based PS Logistics (CCJ Top 250, No. 37), has acquired Broken Bow, Oklahoma flatbed operation Daryl Thomason Trucking. 

Founded with one truck in 1978 by Daryl Thomason and his wife Shelly, Daryl Thomason Trucking has amassed a fleet of 108 trucks and 167 53-foot flatbed trailers. The transaction bolsters PS Logistics’ operations in the Southwest and provides additional terminals in Broken Bow and Nashville, Arkansas.

“We are proud to welcome Daryl Thomason and his great company to the PS Logistics family” said Scott Smith, chief executive officer and co-founder of PS Logistics. “We look forward to working with their great flatbed drivers and operations group, while continuing their top-notch customer service.”

The combination of Starke, Florida-based DMT Trucking and Daryl Thomason Trucking provides PS Logistics with further inroads to the 53-foot trailer market and the ability to enhance its over-length service to existing and future customers, the company said. 

“I have known the PS Logistics team for many years, and I am happy to be partnering with them,” said Daryl Thomason. “Over the last four decades, we built a successful flatbed trucking operation serving outstanding customers with dedicated employees and we will strive to continue that tradition with the same commitment to excellence.”

PS Logistics has acquired and integrated 22 trucking and logistics operations since 2014, including five this year.
