Driver contracting firm expands through acquisition

TransForce, a provider of temporary commercial truck drivers to fleets, is embarking on a growth strategy to expand its footprint across the U.S. One of the first steps in that process is the announcement that the company has acquired Superior Driver Source and Superior Driver Source of the Carolinas.

Superior provides commercial truck drivers in the southeastern U.S. with operations in Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina.  Superior’s senior management has joined TransForce and will assume key regional management roles, the company said. 

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Superior is the perfect fit for us. Both companies have a keen focus on providing quality drivers with impressive safety records. This combination has allowed both companies to prosper by providing exemplary customer service and a great working environment for our drivers,” said David Broome, CEO of TransForce. 

TransForce now serves over 40 markets throughout the U.S., serving national, regional and local motor carriers.

“Traditionally, we have pursued a strategy of organic growth. We now plan to accelerate our growth trajectory by acquiring companies like Superior that provide quality professional drivers with safe operating histories to a broad range of customers. Our goals are to increase the number of markets we serve and to be the market leader in each and every market in which we are present,” said Broome. 

In addition to offering drivers in 26 states, TransForce also offers Dept. of Transportation compliance services that include DOT audit preparedness, qualification file services and training, and federal motor carrier regulation education services.
