C & V Trucking Is Now Part of RoadOne IntermodaLogistics
RoadOne IntermodaLogistics, an intermodal, distribution, and logistics service company, has acquired C & V Trucking of Milford, Connecticut to enhance RoadOne’s Southern New England operations and New York-New Jersey port business.
C & V, with over 30 new trucks and a new terminal adjacent to interstate highways 95 and 91 in Milford, Connecticut, provides a platform to serve manufacturers and retailers that have established distribution centers in the local market. The location also offers close proximity to the port of New York/New Jersey. With this acquisition, RoadOne is the only intermodal transportation provider with terminals and drivers in all key markets in the Southern New England region.
With the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) new Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate due to take effect December 2017, this strategic location in Milford will also help improve RoadOne’s efficiency and capacity and will allow the company to continue to be fully compliant with all Hours of Service regulations. RoadOne has already moved forward with a full implementation plan to install ELDs and driver support systems into every RoadOne vehicle. One-hundred percent of RoadOne’s truck fleet of over one-thousand vehicles will be compliant 12 months before the required deadline.
“RoadOne has the resources necessary to succeed from advanced technology to the safety and compliance standards required in today’s marketplace,” said Keith Grogan, Service Center Manager, RoadOne IntermodaLogistics.
“With the addition of C & V Trucking, we’ve bolstered our distribution network and drayage service capabilities in the northeast,” said Ken Kellaway, CEO of RoadOne IntermodaLogistics.
“The acquisition of C & V Trucking combined with its intermodal experience will enhance and improve our overall operations in the northeast region,” said David McLaughlin, COO of RoadOne IntermodaLogistics. “ In addition, C & V’s strategic location is essential to our ELD rollout in the northeast.”
