Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
Leading trucking and transportation consultation firm Ahern and Associates, has announced an extremely successful start to the month of June, with two major transactions closed within the first week. With these two deals, CEO Andy Ahern continues to demonstrate his value as a leading business consultant and luminary for the trucking and logistics industry.
As North America's leading trucking and transportation management consulting firm, consultants at Ahern and Associates specialize in mergers and acquisitions of trucking and logistics companies, as well as the restructuring and evaluation of existing carriers that seek to increase operating efficiency and improve profitability.
Both of the acquisitions announced this month were new customers. The first wanted to extend its operating model by purchasing a freight brokerage company. The client’s revenues exceeded $100 million when they made the decision to engage Ahern and Associates, who had previously provided consulting services to the client in the past. With a proactive acquisition program, Ahern & Associates was able to assist the client in establishing a plan to avoid mistakes that are often associated with mergers and acquisitions.
The second client was a mid-sized trucking company looking to expand their operating footprint within a specific geographic area. Partnering with Ahern’s extensive experience, the firm was able to assist in establishing a comprehensive acquisition program for the client. Andy Ahern, Founder and CEO of Ahern & Associates explains, “A successful acquisition program must also be an integral part of a company’s overall strategic plan. Acquisitions can support a number of important strategic goals, including growth, diversification, product or market expansion and access to technology.” Ahern was able to assist the client in establishing those goals and objectives to close the deal as a success.
