PACER TRANSPORT ANNOUNCES

FLEET ALLIANCE WITH PARRY TRUCKING

DeSoto, Texas, Feb. 7, 2002 - Pacer Transport, the flatbed, van and specialized heavy-haul trucking unit of Pacer International, has announced an alliance with Northeast regional van carrier Parry Trucking, based in Nicholson, Pennsylvania.

The arrangement provides Pacer Transport, based in DeSoto, Texas, with long-term access to 275 53-foot air-ride van trailers and some 120 additional power units.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to Gerry Angeli, president of Pacer Transport, this expanded access to a young fleet of trucks and vans will further the company's strategic goals by enabling it to provide a more comprehensive service. Parry will serve as the van division of Pacer Transport.

"While we continue to be a leader in specialized trucking services," Angeli said, "our existing customers also value Pacer Transport's growing ability to haul trailer-load freight for them. Increased van capacity means we can support their needs more fully."

Pacer Transport provides services directly to manufacturers, retailers and other customers, and also serves affiliated units within Pacer Global Logistics, the retail division of Pacer International.

"We are pleased to have this opportunity to expand our customer base and our markets to a national scale in concert with Pacer Transport," said Bob Parry, a principal of Parry Trucking.
