Growing Payne: Winnipeg carrier acquires two fleets

WINNIPEG — Payne Transportation plans to purchase two carriers in an effort to develop the Winnipeg-based fleet’s Specialized Division and compliment both the Open Deck and Dry Van Division.

Payne, which operates as a separate division within the Mullen Group, has entered into agreement to purchase Ger-Ed Transport of Winnipeg, and GVT Transport of Winkler, Man.

A closing date of June 30 is projected for both acquisitions.

“We are pleased to add two quality carriers into our fold,” stated Tom Payne Jr., president of Payne Transportation in a news release. “We look forward to working alongside Wayne Mackelson and Howard Hildebrand and their teams as we strengthen our position in the market while continuing to meet customer’s expectations.”
