New additions grow company’s warehousing, logistics, distribution and trucking businesses in Texas

Phoenix Logistics recently acquired Sam Dunn Express (SDX), a regional asset-based trucking company, along with the assets of Sam Dunn Enterprises, a warehousing, logistics, distribution and fulfillment firm in Longview TX.

SDX will become part of Phoenix National Transportation, a newly formed trucking business, the company said.

“Phoenix National Transportation is an exciting new venture for the Phoenix companies; its addition is the next step in providing even more comprehensive services for our valued clients and partners,” said David M. Marks, president and CEO of Phoenix Investors. “The Longview property expands our growing portfolio of industrial real estate in Texas.”

Phoenix National Transportation will provide regional and other over-the-road transportation services in Northeast Texas and nearby states, catering to the food, beverage and alcohol industries. Sam Dunn will be absorbed by Phoenix Logistics and become its tenth location offering distribution and fulfillment services for local and regional customers.

Phoenix Logistics offers services such as inventory management and monitoring, cross-docking and transloading, case picking, reverse logistics and vendor management. To accommodate these services, the 700,000-square-foot facility in Longview boasts 36 dock doors and two rail spurs that split into nine interior tracks.

“Phoenix Logistics is pleased to announce this new acquisition and is grateful to Sandra Holms and Sam Dunn Jr. for their years of experience and excellence building the business,” said Robert Kriewaldt, Phoenix Logistics’ senior vice president.
