Quantix continues to acquire truck assets, expanding the company’s liquid and plastic transportation business.
The Houston-area-based company announced Wednesday that it has acquired five trucking companies and signed on a new agent, LD McCloud Transportation Inc. The deal adds more than 140 trucks to the company’s fleet of 1,054 engines and 758 drivers.
The new trucks will help the company serve customers around the Gulf Coast, including Houston; Port Allen and Baton Rouge, Louisiana; and Meridian, Mississippi. LD McCloud Transportation has Texas offices in Dallas, Corpus Christi and San Antonio.
“Quantix continues to expand its services in Texas and the Gulf Coast regions, and these new assets strengthen our ability to do so,” said Chris Ball, CEO and president of Quantix, in a statement.
The five transportation companies acquired by Quantix include Dobbins Enterprises LLC, C&S Express Inc., Chancelor Transportation LLC, T&K Chancelor Enterprises LLC and Templet Transit LLC.
In October, Quantix acquired G&W Tanks, an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) tank transportation provider.
Quantix, formerly known as A&R Logistics, was acquired by Chicago-based venture capital firm Wind Point Partners in 2019. Under the ownership of Wind Point Partners, A&R Logistics has rebranded as Quantix and has acquired 13 companies in the last two years.
