Trucking Acquisitions

We’re very excited to take on this additional assignment and are confident that we will find a company which will align perfectly with their strategic goals.

These days, the term transportation acquisitions is quickly becoming synonymous with Ahern and Associates—the nation’s top trucking, logistics and warehousing acquisition consulting firm. Leading the transportation industry in the recent surge which has seen regional carriers continue to expand their operational footprints through strategic acquisitions, Andy Ahern and his firm has again been engaged to assist another privately held carrier with their expansion plans.

After assisting in closing four additional transportation acquisitions in the past nine weeks, Ahern’s office is proud to announce an immediate need for another one of their clients. Ahern’s client is a $200MM to $300MM carrier looking to expand their primary traffic lanes in:

  •     The southeast, southwest and Midwest.
  •     They are looking to acquire an asset or non-asset based company that is a regional carrier.
  •     Minimum revenue size will be $40MM plus,
  •     Maximum revenue size will be $100MM
  •     This client specializes in dedicated contracts to a specific industry, but;
  •     They are looking to expand their customer base to non-dedicated contracts.

Marginally profitable companies are accepted as long as they have a good client base, a good driver base and management is willing to stay.

Ahern and Associates has long been recognized as an industry leader not only within the field of transportation acquisitions, but also through helping struggling companies improve profitability and operating efficiencies. Ahern has been credited with having a large impact on the recovery of numerous transportation companies as a whole through his work with transportation acquisitions by not only assisting trucking companies in expanding their operational footprint, but also by preparing smaller companies to be well positioned for integration into larger organizations.

“We’re very excited to take on this additional assignment and are confident that we will find a company which will align perfectly with their strategic goals. Even though we’ve completed dozens of successful acquisition assignments in 2012, we never take our clients’ trust for granted,” explained Ahern.
