A Forward Air® Company
Central States Trucking (CST) Expands Market Leading Position with Purchase of Multi-Modal Transport Inc. (MMT).
Oak Brook, IL – July 25, 2018 - CST, founded in 1980, and currently one of the largest intermodal drayage companies in the United States (22 National Offices, with over 1,500 total Employees and Drivers), has acquired Multi-Modal Transport Inc. (MMT). MMT represents the seventh acquisition that has been completed by CST since it was acquired by Forward Air Corp. (FWRD).
All of the management, office staff, and drivers of Multi-Modal Transport will transition to CST and will continue to provide the same high level of service as their customer base have enjoyed for many years. CST expects the existing growth in the Minneapolis market to continue and plans to further add both driver and operating resources to satisfy our customer’s strong demand in this market.
The MMT opportunity provides CST with an expanded footprint in the Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Wisconsin markets, along with access to several strategic customer relationships. “MMT has an outstanding service reputation in the drayage market and aligns perfectly with CST’s continued growth vision,” said Ron Vales, SVP of CST. “We are pleased to welcome Rick Lacher and his entire group to the CST team.”
I would like to personally welcome all of our new staff members, drivers and customers into the CST family and certainly look forward to working closely with everybody in the years to come.
