KJM Capital, LLC, an Orlando, Fla.-based private equity firm, announced plans to roll out a family of regional, refrigerated truckload carriers under the Cold Carriers brand name.
Cold Carriers will be the master brand that presides over the sub-brands of its three, initial operating carriers—Gantt Trucking, Interide Transport and Sunco Trucking.
Cold Carriers plans to strategically expand its nationwide transportation network and capabilities by acquiring additional refrigerated truckload carriers in 2017. While the regional carriers will continue to operate under each of their brands, each has been integrated onto a common transportation management platform, designed to deliver a seamless customer experience to shippers and producers throughout the continental United States.
Cold Carriers offers full truckload, temperature-controlled transport services with a combined fleet of over 450 tractors and 700 refrigerated units, providing transportation needs to blue chip shippers nationwide. All of the fleet consists of late-model tractors and trailers that are compliant with ELD regulations.
This move comes on the heels of KJM Capital acquiring Interide Transport, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Blue Sky Logistics, Smithfield, Utah, in December 2016.
