Bennett Motor Express Acquires Best Ways Brokerage
ATLANTA, Nov. 21, 2011
Specialized freight carrier Bennett Motor Express today announced it has acquired Best Ways Brokerage, a logistics and brokerage company based in Spanaway, Washington.
"This acquisition will allow us to expand our flatbed and specialized freight capacity in the Northwest, so that we can continue to deliver the highest level of quality service to our North American customers," said Bennett Motor Express President David Lowry. "Best Ways has a strong commitment to safety and the highest performance, so it’s a strategic fit that will benefit both companies."
Founded in 1981, Best Ways operates as a licensed brokerage company delivering flat bed, step deck, specialized, van, rail, and ocean transport. Best Ways has established network of clients in the West and Midwest, and with the acquisition, will now offer an expanded capacity of equipment options for domestic and international transportation.
"We’re excited to add our brokerage and logistics expertise to BME, a company with such a diverse asset base," said Best Ways President Jim Nicholson. "This partnership will put us both in a strong position to provide our domestic customers with a greater diversity in transportation and logistics services."
