Logistics provider Pilot Freight Services has acquired franchise stations in “strategic markets” in North America.
Pilot said the franchises, which are in Oregon in Washington, and Oklahoma, will be integrated into its organisation “with no disruption in service offerings or senior management”.
The company said in a statement: “[The franchises] serve a robust domestic and global customer-base, with a particular expertise in perishables freight forwarding. The leadership and employees of the franchises will join the Pilot organisation as part of the transactions.”
Zach Pollock, chief executive officer of Pilot Freight Services, commented: “We are truly excited to welcome these long-term franchises to the Pilot corporate team and are confident these tenured teams will continue to contribute to the long-term growth of the company.”
Pilot has acquired 35 franchise locations over the last four years and completed the acquisitions of Manna Freight Systems in 2018, DSI Logistics in 2021, and American Linehaul Corporation in 2021. The acquisitions were backed by ATL Partners and British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCI).
