TRAC Intermodal buys road service repair provider

TRAC Intermodal, the largest provider of chassis in the U.S., has acquired Interstar Fleet Services, a provider of emergency road service repair service.

The companies will combine their nationwide vendor networks into TRAC Interstar LLC, which will offer round-the-clock  services for chassis, trucks and trailers.

A Florence, Kentucky, call center uses proprietary software to field service requests, locate the closest available Interstar repair technician and manage the repair process.

“Having a national emergency road service operation will enable us to quickly respond to emergency situations and get our driver customers and their equipment back on the road,” said Keith E. Lovetro, president and CEO of TRAC Intermodal.

“Joining forces with TRAC Intermodal will offer increased opportunities to provide effective solutions for our customers, growth opportunities for our employees and additional business to our highly qualified national vendor network,” said Rodney G. Goderwis, president of Interstar Fleet Services.

TRAC has an active fleet of about 278,000 chassis, with 600 marine, 160 domestic and 60 depot locations in North America.
