On Thursday, KLLM Transport Services announced the acquisition of a refrigerated carrier based in Cartersville, Georgia.
KLLM announced the acquisition of Quest Global Inc. as part of the company’s “ongoing growth strategy in the temperature-controlled shipping sector.”
“The acquisition of Quest Global Inc. will enhance KLLM’s premium service offerings now with expedited, temperature-controlled shipping nationwide,” KLLM CEO Jim Richards said. “Quest Global Inc. has been a well-run, safety driven company for years. Their culture and values are a great fit with our family of companies, and we’re thrilled to have them as part of the KLLM family.”
KLLM says that the operation will continue to be run from the Cartersville location but will be branded as KLLM Expedited Services.
“Building Quest Global, Inc. has been my life’s work, and I could not have found a better home than KLLM for the Quest family,” said Jason Dickerson, CEO of Quest Global. “Within five minutes of meeting Jim Richards I knew KLLM was a perfect fit because of their family values, respect for their employees, and dedication to providing the best customer service possible. As a family-oriented company, my goal was to find the best home for our people for years to come, and I look forward to being part of the team to ensure a smooth transition.”
KLLM was founded in 1962 and is headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi, providing various transportation services to customers in the U.S. and Mexico.
