Mark Bostick, president and chief executive officer of Comcar Industries, announced the creation of a strategic alliance between Midwest Coast Transport Inc (MCT) and Willis Shaw Express Inc (WSE).

“The result of this alliance will be a stronger and more efficient operation that will be best able to compete in the temperature-controlled segment of the transportation industry. By strategically sharing certain services and assets, we will be better positioned to meet our customers’ needs,” said Bostick.

MCT and WSE and their wholly owned subsidiaries/LLCs will continue to operate independently under their current company names. Matt Staniszewski, president of MCT, will also serve as president of WSE. Staniszewski has a sales, operations, and logistics background, having served in a variety of key management roles for Comcar the past 15 years. He previously led WSE for two years prior to being named president of MCT in 2004. He brings a comprehensive knowledge of the temperature-controlled business with a successful track record that includes dedicated services, private fleet conversions, intermodal shipping, and port operations.

Sales and marketing efforts of both companies will be led by Dan Denhof. He joined WSE as vice-president of sales and marketing in March 2009. Denhof has 20 years of leadership experience in the transportation industry, including serving most recently as president of a Florida-based temperature-controlled trucking company.

The logistics and brokerage efforts of the companies will be led by David Saylor, who recently joined the company as managing director of logistics. Saylor brings more than 20 years of logistics management experience to the Comcar network of companies.

Further updates regarding the MCT/WSE strategic alliance will be announced soon.
