TFI International acquires D&D Sexton

Dec. 2, 2021
The acquisition adds 150 company drivers and owner operators, close to 40 non-driving employees, and more than 120 tractors and nearly 400 refrigerated and dry van trailers.

TFI International has acquired D&D Sexton (D&D). Based in Carthage, Missouri, D&D has been a family-owned business for more than 40 years, specializing in refrigerated transportation and serving a long-standing customer base with both long-haul over-the-road services as well as local and shuttle operations.

“D&D is an excellent strategic fit with the organization, culture, and business model of our CFI operating company, adding strategic capacity and valuable, long-standing customer relationships to its temperature-controlled business,” stated Alain Bédard, chairman, president, and CEO of TFI International. 

D&D has more than 150 company drivers and owner-operators and close to 40 non-driving employees. Operating more than 120 tractors and nearly 400 refrigerated and dry van trailers, D&D generates annualized revenues in excess of $25 million. The acquired business will operate within TFI International’s CFI group of companies. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“In addition to an overlapping refrigerated freight network, D&D brings significant experience in local and shuttle operations,” Bédard said. “We see multiple near-term opportunities around costs, routes, and pricing to enhance profitability, as well as longer-term opportunities to optimize equipment and the capacity network design, taking D&D to the next level of excellence. We extend our warmest welcome to the entire D&D team and look forward to their many upcoming contributions to TFI International’s continued growth.”
