Nolan Transportation Group (NTG), a North American non-asset truckload freight brokerage and provider of third-party logistics services, has acquired Eagle Transportation, a Mississippi-based freight brokerage specialising in temperature-controlled shipping.
 
This acquisition reflects NTG’s continued nationwide expansion as a logistics provider with services across transportation modes and with sensitive freight. NTG will add the team at Eagle Transportation who should bring enhanced temperature-controlled capabilities and expertise to NTG customers nationwide. The Eagle team will continue to manage existing customer and carrier relationships.
 
“Eagle Transportation is a trusted, well-managed brokerage with an exceptional reputation for quality and on-time service,” said Kevin Nolan, founder and chairman of NTG. “The acquisition of Eagle takes us another step, solidifying our position as a leading freight brokerage platform in North America.”
 
This acquisition broadens the capabilities of NTG in the segment of temperature-controlled truckload and supply chain management and services. Eagle brings cold-chain shipping expertise with an emphasis on service levels, audit capabilities, quality management, communication and transparency.
 
“We share the NTG vision to connect shippers and carriers while delivering exceptional service and meeting quality expectations at competitive rates,” said Tory Bass, president of Eagle Transportation. “We look forward to joining with NTG as we continue to grow and serve our customers.”
 
As a freight brokerage firm, NTG provides multimodal freight services through a wide-ranging network of partner carriers, offering transportation at competitive rates. Eagle will continue serving its legacy customers and carriers while introducing a broader range of service offerings and logistics from NTG. NTG operates as a sister company to Transportation Insight, a non-asset provider of enterprise logistics.
 
Transportation Insight has just acquired Meridian Logistics of Austin, Texas. The acquisition continues Transportation Insight’s core M&A strategy of buying well-positioned transportation and logistics businesses with a base of clients that have future growth opportunities.
