Flatbed and specialized trucking company Daseke Inc. reported strong growth for the second quarter of 2018, as acquisitions the growing company made during the past 12 months propelled its financial results.
Flatbed and specialized transportation carrier Daseke Inc., which has been in the throes of expansion — adding seven fleets last year and one so far in 2018 — has created a new unit to improve the way it buys, sells and maintains the thousands of pieces of equipment it operates.
Daseke Inc. on April 16 continued its acquisition activity, announcing it will purchase Aveda Transportation and Energy Services, a large North American oil rig moving company based in Calgary, Alberta. The deal is expected to close in June.
The truckload industry continued to struggle in the second quarter and earnings are expected to be down year-over-year for most carriers, based on forecasts from industry analysts and interviews with several fleets.July 7, 2017
