Less-than-truckload carrier Wilson Trucking Corporation announced it has signed a Letter of Intent with Central Freight Lines, Inc. of Texas whereby Central Freight Lines will buy certain assets of Wilson Trucking and expand Central Freight Lines’ service territory into the Southeastern US. The transaction is expected to close by March 31, 2017.
“This is very good news for the many loyal customers of Wilson” said C.L. (Chuck) Wilson, chairman and CEO of Wilson Trucking. “Central Freight Lines has been in business for over 90 years just like Wilson Trucking and I’m confident Wilson’s customers will be quite impressed with the many service offerings of Central Freight Lines.”
Both are large carriers, ranking among the top 30 largest LTL in the United States and Canada. Both are over 90 years old.
Don Orr, President and CEO of Central Freight Lines, said “This is an important move for Central Freight Lines. It allows us to fulfill our strategy of being the premier coast-to-coast Sunbelt LTL provider in the industry. We look forward to adding Wilson’s customers to Central’s list of highly satisfied customers.”
