C.R. England acquires 3PL company Carson Transport

| 6/30/2005

C.R. England Inc., an 85-year-old refrigerated trucking company, recently strengthened its logistics division by buying Carson Transport Inc., a third-party logistics company specializing in refrigerated less-than-truckload service for perishable food manufacturers.

“This is an ideal company to help us launch our LTL service,” said Sean Snow, C.R. England vice president, in a press release.

Previously, C.R. England did not offer shipping for partial loads. Now, the company will offer coast-to-coast delivery of refrigerated LTL loads within five business days.

C.R. England acquired northern California-based Carson Transport’s ongoing operations and selected assets, though terms of the sale were not disclosed. Carson Transport has operated for more than five years in the refrigerated load-consolidation business.
