GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Britton Transport, a US subsidiary of Bison Transport, has acquired Scott’s Express and Scott’s Transportation Services, located in Grand Forks, N.D. Scott’s is a nationwide trucking and truck brokerage company, specializing in agribusiness throughout the US and parts of Canada

"The acquisition of Scott’s expands and builds upon Britton’s customer relationships and capabilities as a logistics service provider in the Red River Valley,” said Dave Britton, president of Britton. “Scott’s has a long tradition of service excellence among agricultural shippers within the valley and will continue to service its customers with Britton’s support. We are excited about the opportunity to serve Scott’s long-term customers with Britton’s asset-based capabilities.”

Brad Seymour, president of Scott’s, will continue with the company in the transition of ownership and servicing of Scott’s customers. He says, “I have known Dave Britton for over 25 years and have a high regard for the way Britton does business. We are very pleased to be joining forces with Britton and I feel it gives our employees and our customers a platform to grow in the years ahead.”

Founded in 1952, Scott’s was initially operated as a filling station, but soon after began sourcing trucks on behalf of local potato farmers, becoming the first truck brokerage in the Red River Valley. Today, Scott’s continues to service the potato and specialty crop sector.

Financial details concerning this transaction have not been disclosed.
