MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Link Logistics has been acquired by U.S.-based TransCore in a deal both companies say creates the single largest Internet freight exchange in the continent.
Link will now work side-by-side with DAT Services, which was previously gobbled-up by the growing TransCore. With Link customers offering about 30,000 loads and trucks on a daily basis, the new total across North America will be pushed to approximately 110,000 loads and trucks.
“Industries that feel the ongoing and immediate impact of NAFTA and the Summit of the Americas will demand services that make international trade more feasible and efficient,” says John Worthington, TransCore chief executive officer.
“Today’s acquisition will ease the workload for intermediaries, carriers and their customers on both sides of the border.”
