“The acquisition of Connectrans expands our footprint into the Canadian logistics market, which is strategic to our future growth plans, particularly in our Specialty Products division,” said Kevin Spencer, president of KAG Logistics. “It also allows us to continue strengthening our cross-border experience as we serve our current and potential Canadian and U.S. customers that flourish in both marketplaces.”
Connectrans has provided cross-border transportation and shipping solutions for more than two decades. The company boasts an established carrier network with demonstrated expertise in transportation solutions within dry van, temperature control, flatbed, over-dimensional, and intermodal, KAG said.
“By partnering with KAG Logistics, we will be able to offer our customers enhanced capabilities with access to the U.S. marketplace, specialized assets, industry-leading technologies and additional logistics expertise from a strong and experienced leadership team,” said Steve Hodowany, president and general manager of Connectrans.
“We expect an extremely smooth transition as both of our organizations are dedicated to exemplary performance across North America.”
