CAMBRIDGE, Ont. — Challenger Motor Freight has announced it has purchased certain assets of the special commodities business of Sandrock Specialized Carriers.


Sandrock is an Ontario-based carrier that specializes on over-dimensional transportation.


“The addition of the Sandrock business is a significant moment for both our companies,” said Dan Einwechter, chairman and CEO of Challenger Motor Freight. “With the addition of their equipment and expertise, we look forward to expanding our special commodities division to provide Challenger’s innovative transportation solutions to a wider range of customers as well as our combined existing client base. Having Mark Sandrock and his team  join our new division, Sandrock Specialized Transport, will enhance service offers to existing Challenger accounts as well as provide Sandrock’s customer with much broader service offerings from a single source, a true win-win situation.”


“With the challenges in today’s trucking industry, it is often necessary and sometimes inevitable to seek out a larger carrier to provide security and diversity of service, and such is the case for Sandrock,” added Mark Sandrock, president of Sandrock Specialized Carriers. “I take huge pride that I can join a truly great carrier of Challenger’s calibre and build a strong team for the future of both my current and potential customers.”


Sandrock was founded in 1999 and has focused on transporting heavy equipment and over-dimensional freight.
