CPC Logistics (CPC), Chesterfield, Mo., acquired Quality Driver Solutions, Inc. (QDS), Sacramento, Calif.
QDS maintains 12 branch locations throughout the western and southern United States, and is expected to complement the temporary and flex driver services already provided by CPC under its Consolidated Logistics Solutions (CLS) brand. The combination of QDS and CLS also significantly strengthens and diversifies CPC Logistics' position as a logistics personnel provider.
QDS and CLS will combine under the Quality Driver Solutions brand, and will be based in Chesterfield.
"This acquisition will result in forming one of the top temporary and flex personnel services providers to truck fleets of all sizes," says Doug Crowell, president and CEO of CPC Logistics. "We expect QDS to allow us to grow and be more flexible in serving the needs of our private fleet customers. The leadership and team at QDS have built a strong business with an excellent growth record, and we plan to work with them to continue serving the growing needs of drivers and customers. We are very excited to bring the QDS team and their experience into our family of companies."
"CPC brings Quality Driver Solutions a new vehicle to extend its service offerings and increase the QDS brand visibility to new areas. All of our associates are excited to work with the CPC team to make QDS an even bigger player in this space," says Ernesto Lopez, former owner of Quality Driver Solutions, Inc.
"Adding the QDS team to our existing business accelerates our growth plans and quickly moves us forward several years. The increase in market presence and bringing in the QDS talented staff and leaders is very valuable in our tight labor market. Combining talent with our significant investments in technology creates a great new opportunity for all of us at CPC and QDS," adds Rodney Graham, who will be leading the new combined QDS.
