Transpro buys Trans-Send

by MM&D Online Staff

Transpro Freight Systems has purchased Trans-Send Freight Systems Ltd. The additional fleet and human resources immediately expands Transpro’s USA footprint. Trans-Send’s president, Lisa Carwardine, will stay on with Transpro Freight and assist with the transition as the two operations merge.

Trans-Send shares a similar “family owned” culture with Transpro and both organizations have very low employee turnover. Frank Prosia, president of Transpro Freight said, “Bringing our two companies together was a very good fit on both sides. We share a similar history and common values. The industry will continue to consolidate. At Transpro Freight, our objective is to bring higher efficiency and expanded offerings to our clients.”

Trans-Send specializes in cross border truckload services and offers both single and team driver service. Core markets include the shipment of high value goods between the Greater Toronto Area and Austin, TX, Memphis, TN, Nashville, TN, Charlotte, NC, Cincinnati, OH and Huntsville, AL. It also offers freight management services. These services will be integrated into the Transpro Freight Systems offering over the next few weeks.

“Our family has 25 years of history that went into building this company. We have a great team and wonderful clients. By joining the Transpro Group, we can continue that journey, share our success and continue to serve our customers with a personalized, quality service under the Transpro Freight Systems banner,” said Carwardine/
