trucking, logistics and brokerage firm that has contracts with more than 5,000
independent owner-operators is changing its name. Transport Industries Holdings
, is now Greatwide Logistics Services.
Greatwide was formed by the
investment group Fenway Partners, which has bought a number of trucking
businesses in recent years, including May Trucking.
In September 2005, it announced the acquisition of Cargo-Master and the
truckload carrier Dallas & Mavis.
Rather than having its own fleet, Greatwide
manages deliveries by its owner-operators. According to a statement from the
company, transportation services are provided to companies like Wal-Mart,
Target, GM and Ford.
