RANDOLPH, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 13, 2016) - RoadOne IntermodaLogistics, a leading single source intermodal, distribution, and logistics service company, announces today the acquisition of C & V Trucking of Milford, Connecticut to enhance RoadOne's Southern New England operations and New York, New Jersey port business.
C & V, with over 30 new trucks and a new terminal adjacent to route 95 and 91 in Milford, Connecticut, provides a solid platform to service manufacturers and big box retailers that have established distribution centers in this growing market. This location also offers close proximity to the port of New York/New Jersey. With this acquisition, RoadOne is the only intermodal transportation provider with terminals and drivers in all key markets in the Southern New England region.
With the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) new Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate due to take effect December 2017, this strategic location in Milford will also help improve RoadOne's efficiency and capacity and will allow the company to continue to be fully compliant with all Hours of Service regulations. RoadOne has already moved forward with a full implementation plan to install ELD's and driver support systems into every RoadOne vehicle. One-hundred percent of RoadOne's truck fleet of over 1000 vehicles will be compliant 12 months before the required deadline.
"Great service was the cornerstone of C & V Trucking's business model for the past 38 years, as it is at RoadOne. I'm pleased to join the RoadOne team to continue that tradition and be an integral part of the company's future growth. RoadOne has the resources necessary to succeed from advanced technology to the safety and compliance standards required in today's marketplace," said Keith Grogan, Service Center Manager, RoadOne IntermodaLogistics.
"With the addition of C & V Trucking, we've bolstered our distribution network and drayage service capabilities in the Northeast. We are confident Keith's extensive intermodal experience and strong financial background will contribute greatly to our strong growth in this critical region," said Ken Kellaway, CEO of RoadOne IntermodaLogistics.
"The acquisition of C & V Trucking combined with the intermodal experience that Keith and his team has will enhance and improve our overall operations in the Northeast region. In addition, C & V's strategic location is essential to our ELD rollout in the Northeast," said David McLaughlin, COO of RoadOne IntermodaLogistics.
