BOLTON, Ont. -- Cavalier has announced a new partnership with RIST Transport, which will combine the two carriers’ networks and provide two-day service between the northeastern US and markets in Ontario and Quebec.

RIST has 11 terminals in the northeastern US, covering Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Its parent company is Wadhams Enterprises, which has been around since 1949.

“We at RIST Transport and the Wadhams family, are thrilled to team up with Cavalier Transportation and the Ledson family,” announced Steve Wadhams, owner and president of Wadhams Enterprises. “The common goals, culture, philosophies, and basic values, could not be more in sync between the two companies. This partnership provides a strong level of accountability and a service commitment that is unmatched by the competition. The territories of both companies complement each other and offer terminal conveniences that make the transfer of freight seamless. This will allow us to expand our service areas for our current customers and entice new customers that are looking for that perfect logistic bridge across our Canada-US borders.”

The companies say they’ll offer two-day service between the northeastern US and Ontario/Quebec. They also plan to offer expedited overnight lanes. The partnership also will include freight consolidation services and warehousing on both sides of the border.

Brian Ledson, executive vice-president of sales and marketing with Cavalier said “We are very excited about our new partnership with RIST Transport. Our two companies share a passion for service excellence. Bringing two family owned and operated companies together is like the perfect marriage. This partnership brings Cavalier a strong presence in northeastern US and expands our footprint. We look forward to the opportunities ahead.”
