DEVON, Alta. -- St. Cloud, Minn.-based Anderson Trucking Service (ATS) moved into the Alberta trucking market last month with the acquisition of Waylon Transport.

ATS said it eyed Waylon Transport as a good fit because of its proximity to roadways, rail yards and the Edmonton International Airport. Waylon Transport has established itself as an international and domestic transport provider while also serving the needs of Alberta’s oilfield. It runs 22 trucks and 40 trailers as well as a freight brokerage business.

“We are excited about the service possibilities for our customers that can be provided by the combined efforts of Waylon and ATS, and are pleased to welcome Waylon to the Anderson Family of Companies,” announced Brent Anderson, vice-president of heavy haul and wind energy services with ATS.

Blaine Campbell, general manager, added: “I am very excited about the new and expanding path the company is taking, and am looking forward to the upcoming opportunities and integration of the companies while maintaining Waylon’s identity and the high level of service we are known for.”

Dave Iwanicka, founder of Waylon Transport said “It will be rewarding for me to see that Waylon Transport will continue to grow with the Anderson group.”

Good for Dave Iwanicka, in the 80's I put together their Operating Authorities.

Nice to see that my efforts helped to get them this far.
