BirdDog Logistics acquired Churchill Transport Group and its affiliate CTG Financial.
Andover, Mass.-based BirdDog said the purchase was an important strategic addition to its freight management business. Privately-owned Charlotte, N.C.-based Churchill extends the company’s ability to deliver services.
"The addition of Churchill further strengthens our position in the transportation market and advances BirdDog's objective of helping our customers effectively purchase and manage freight across all modes of transportation,” said Richard Piontek, president of BirdDog Logistics. “In addition, Churchill customers will now have access to BirdDog's Transportation Spend Management services, including contract negotiation, freight bill audit and payment, and information management."
"Combining teams and uniting our capabilities is a great growth opportunity for Churchill and will greatly benefit our customers and employees," said Derek Skea, president, Churchill Transport Group. "We are excited to join the BirdDog team and look forward to continued growth and success."
BG Strategic Advisors acted as Churchill's financial advisor on the transaction.
