East Coast Warehouse & Distribution (“East Coast Warehouse”), a leading temperature-controlled logistics provider to the food and beverage industry, announced today that its sister company, Safeway Trucking Corporation (“Safeway”), has acquired the assets of Allied Brothers Intermodal, Inc. (“Allied”).
Allied is a full-service drayage provider serving the Northeast region of the United States for over 45 years. Its trucking operation accommodates both local and long-haul drayage capabilities with service to and from the Ports of New York and New Jersey, as well as local rail ramps. Its customer base aligns well with that of Safeway, focusing on food and beverage, candy and confectionery, and retail verticals.
“The acquisition of Allied will strengthen and increase Safeway’s overall driver capacity at a time when driver recruitment and retention is a top priority,” said East Coast Warehouse CEO Jamie Overley. “Their service offering and footprint dovetails with that of our organization. We are confident the combination of our companies will benefit our customers.”
Safeway is one of the nation’s largest container drayage providers, offering fast, reliable, and cost-effective drayage, full truckload, less-than-truckload, transportation management, and final mile delivery services across the contiguous United States.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
