MCDONOUGH, GA., (September 4, 2019)– Bennett Motor Express, LLC (Bennett) is pleased to announce the addition of a new agent, Contractors Cargo Company (CCC), a Los Angeles, California-based family-owned and operated company specializing in super heavy haul transportation.
With the addition of CCC as an agent, Bennett will be able to offer new super heavy haul capabilities in its Heavy Haul division. In North America, CCC is able to move freight from 100,000 pounds to more than 1 million. The logistics to handle a freight load of this magnitude is a crucial component in the process of transporting cargo through sea ports and cities.
Contractors Cargo Company formed in 1933, in Los Angeles, California. In 1962, current Chairman, Jerry Wheeler purchased the business and it remains family-owned; Wheeler’s son, Gerald, President, his sister, Kim and daughter Erica are actively involved in the business. The company also has an additional office location in Houston, Texas. Over the years, Contractors Cargo Company has handled several historical super heavy haul projects, including the United States Space Shuttle Challenger in 1982 and the London Bridge in 2015.
The transportation service territory for CCC is all of North America, specializing in the Western United States, Western Canada and Northern Mexico region. The super heavy haul freight is delivered to and from the U.S. gulf ports, Midwest inland locations and U.S. West Coast maritime industry including cities like San Diego, Long Beach, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
“We’re excited to add our expertise in super heavy hauling and work with Bennett, an established company that specializes in hauling heavy, over-dimensional and unusual freight. This was an effortless decision that will allow us to move forward in providing additional super heavy hauling coverage and serve customers at the highest level,” said Gerald Wheeler, President of Contractors Cargo Company. “We love working with another family-owned company that shares some of our same core values and has a long history in the transportation industry like we do.”
“This relationship will allow us to expand our efforts in not only super heavy haul transportation but our territory reach to include more of the West. We continue to look for partnerships like this one to deliver the highest level of quality service to our North American customers,” said David Lowry, Bennett Motor Express CEO. Contractors Cargo Company is a pioneer in the super heavy hauling industry with a rich history and solid reputation for many years, so it’s a strategic fit that will benefit both companies.”
