Daseke adds Steelman companies

July 7 - Texas, USA-based Daseke has added the Steelman Companies to the Daseke group of companies.

Operating throughout the Midwest, Steelman Companies has two distinct areas of expertise.

Steelman Transportation carries flatbed and heavy haul freight, while Group One specialises in transporting roll-on powersports and industrial warehousing as well as offering 10-wheel drive-away services, according to a statement from Daseke.

"A key objective of our decision to go public in February was to enhance our ability to build North America's premier flatbed and specialised transportation company," said Don Daseke, president and ceo of Daseke.

"We are the largest owner of equipment with over 3,600 trucks and over 7,500 flatbed and specialised trailers, yet Daseke still accounts for less than one percent of our USD133 billion market segment. We have now completed three mergers in just over two months and we're proud to be executing as promised."

Daseke is comprised of 12 operating companies including Smokey Point Distributing, E.W. Wylie, J. Grady Randolph, Central Oregon Truck Company, Lone Star Transportation, Bulldog Hiway Express, Hornady Transportation, The Boyd Companies (including Boyd Bros. Transportation and WTI Transport), The Schilli Companies, Big Freight Systems and now, The Steelman Companies.
