Bennett Motor Express Tops List of North America's Largest Specialized Transport Companies
Marks fourth consecutive year on ACTTRANSPORT50
ATLANTA, Jan. 3, 2011
Specialized freight transporter Bennett Motor Express (BME) has taken the third spot on American Crane & Transport’s (ACT) magazine’s list of the top 50 largest specialized carriers in North America. This is the fourth year BME has landed as one of largest haulers of heavy and oversize freight on the ACTTRANSPORT50.
In 2009, BME ranked fifth in overall size and freight capacity on the annual list. The recent rise in ranking reflects the company’s continued investment in equipment to meet increased customer demand. With nearly 600 tractors and 1,200 trailers, BME has the one of the largest privately-owned specialized fleets in the US.
"Many of the industries we serve-from wind to air and space-look to us to provide the right equipment to safely move, high-value cargo," said BME President David Lowry. "ACT’s ranking just reaffirms that we are committed to making an investment in the people and the equipment to keep providing quality service."
The annual ACTTRANSPORT 50 is generated through 100s of surveys submitted from transportation, rigging and lifting companies. The survey ranks companies in two ways-first by fleet size and then by maximum transport capacity. Visit www.khl.com for the complete list.
