Roadone continues quest to expand capacity and service capabilities in the U.S.
Randolph, Massachusetts - RoadOne IntermodaLogistics, a leading single source intermodal, distribution, and logistics service company, announces its acquisition of Jarvis Trans Inc., an intermodal transportation company serving the greater New England region including Boston. Daily service is also offered from New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia to all Northeast points. Jarvis Trans has been in business for over 50 years.
The intermodal drayage sector has had to confront numerous issues over the past year including a shortage of qualified drivers; the effects of the implementation of the federally mandated Electronic Logging Device (ELD's); port mandated clean trucks, as well as finding experienced operational staff. "The acquisition of Jarvis Transportation allows RoadOne to address all of these issues. Jarvis' management team of Peter Lawless and Eric Jones have decades of operational experience between them and are backed up with a talented staff. Jarvis' drivers operating newer, clean trucks, that are already ELD complaint, will increase RoadOne's capacity in the Northeast market. This is a great fit for both companies and we look forward to a bright future together," said David McLaughlin, COO, RoadOne IntermodaLogistics.
"If my father was alive today, he would be proud that his company is now part of RoadOne, the industry leader in innovative, intermodal logistics. I certainly am and I know the entire Jarvis Trans team is also," commented Peter Lawless, Jarvis Trans President.
"Jarvis Trans has always strived to provide our customers with the highest levels of efficiency and customer satisfaction. Now, as part of the RoadOne team, we are excited to provide our customers with even more innovative services and with the same emphasis on efficiency, responsiveness and customer satisfaction," said Eric Jones, Jarvis Trans Chief Operating Officer.
"We are pleased to have Peter, Eric and the rest of the Jarvis Team join RoadOne. They have worked hard to build a high-quality service company that will clearly add value to RoadOne's Northeast operations. With the ELD era upon us Jarvis can help us to continue our mission to build the premier intermodal trucking company in the U.S. by providing additional capacity and service in the challenging New York-New Jersey to Boston corridor," said Ken Kellaway, CEO of RoadOne IntermodaLogistics.
