VANCOUVER, B.C. – Speedee Rolls Right has purchased Russell Freightways, a company that provided LTL and FTL services to Vancouver Island and Calgary, Alta.
Russell Freightways’ owner Bruce Russell was looking to make a transition, while Speedee Rolls Right was planning to obtain a better stronghold for deliveries to Vancouver Island, making the acquisition a win for both sides.
The purchase adds 40 units to Speedee’s fleet, and the Vancouver-based company was able to integrate Russell Freightways into its electronic platform.
Speedee Rolls Right’s long-term vision with the purchase is to provide its combined customer base with more multi-modal options and extra coverage.
