OAKVILLE, Ont. – The Tandet Group has completed its fourth acquisition. The company announced today that it has acquired Connell Transport based in Hamilton, Ontario.
Connell operates a fleet of 60 power units and 80 trailers and services the elevated temperature bulk industry. According to Tandet, this acquisition creates great strategic synergies within Tandet’s bulk logistics business, and gives the company Ontario terminals in Oakville, Mississauga, Cambridge and Sarnia, with a western focused terminal and rail transfer operation in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
“Tandet has positioned our investments to service customers with direct delivery services, through our dedicated and bulk trucking operations, as well as indirectly through our freight management operations” indicated Scott Tilley, president of the trucking divisions. “Our acquisitions have allowed us larger scope and more flexibility to address customer needs. Our other operations, which include standby power generation, leasing, intermodal transfer services and tractor-trailer repair services, have also grown organically in 2015 through great service.”
The company acquired Bonneau Freight just this past June and ShipNorthAmerica in January. In April, it acquired the customer base of Emergency Breakdown Services (EBS) located in Mississauga and merged that operation into the Group’s T-Fleet Services operation. Now servicing over 200 customers through a staff of over 45 employees, T-Fleet supports fleets that operate in excess of 30,000 vehicles, 24/7 throughout the year.
