In addition, A&A’s Midwest presence enables us to more effectively cross-sell our truckload services because of their superior service and solid, long-term customer relationships. A&A’s principal former owners will remain in place and are excited about the growth opportunities we collectively envision.”

“A&A’s operating network and high-quality fleet are an excellent complement to our existing Truckload Services platform and will provide immediate growth opportunities in our refrigerated offering,” said Brian van Helden, president of Roadrunner’s Truckload & Logistics business segment.
