Four carriers have been merged by the board of directors at Vision Logistics Holding Corp. to form United Vision Logistics.

The Gulf-based carriers, Ace Transportation, Dynasty Transportation, Texas Hot Shot Company and Venture Transport, were all purchased between July 2007 and April 2008 by New York-based equity firm Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe. The goal was to merge them into one company.

“United Vision Logistics is the consolidation of all of the strengths and competencies of each of the four companies, now further enhanced by new technologies and increased power in the marketplace,” said Tom Perdue, CEO of United Vision Logistics. “Our customers can count on the same reliability and expertise that came with each of the four acquired companies and look forward to bigger and better capabilities from the integrated United Vision Logistics.”

The new company, headquartered in Lafayette, LA, includes more than 2,800 owner-operators, 130 terminals and nearly 400 employees. It includes general commodity shipping and truck brokerage operations in addition to supporting the energy industry in Louisiana and Texas.
