New Century Transportation on Dec. 1 acquired Colorado-based Western Freightways, which will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary.
Marc Haney, president of Western Freightways, will remain at the helm of the company. "Our team has enjoyed an excellent reputation servicing our many long-term customers," said Haney. "Our employees' extensive industry knowledge has contributed significantly to Western's profitable growth over the years. We're very pleased to join the New Century team, where we will have access to industry best practices and resources that will foster continued success for our valued customers and our employees."
Harry Muhlschlegel, New Century Transportation chairman and CEO said the acquisition will provide operational synergies and make both companies more competitive.
"We are pleased that both companies share a common model of hybrid 'Load-to-Deliver' LTL service, and a common culture based on premium performance," he said.
