Armour Transportation Systems, a less-than-truckload carrier based in Atlantic Canada, acquired Way's Transport, a trucking operator in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition gives Armour two additional terminals in western Newfoundland, doubling the number of its facilities in the province.
Armour, which has 26 terminals, connects shippers in Altantic Canada with the central provinces of Ontario and Quebec and the eastern U.S. Armour has a truckload subsidiary, Polestar, and an express division, Armour Courier Services.
The Moncton, New Brunswick-based carrier has more than 4,000 trucks, tractors and trailers. Way's Transport operates more than 150 pieces of equipment.
Marvin Way, whose father Clyde Way founded Way's Transport in 1976, will stay on to run the business, according to a statement published by the Canadian Press.
