One of Celadon Groups subsidiaries has purchased select assets of the truckload business of Tango Transport, a Louisiana-based carrier.

The move is aimed at growing Celadon’s business by adding density the company’s primary traffic lanes and as a way to gain experienced drivers. Celadon expects the acquisition to provide Tango’s former customers with improved service through an upgraded equipment fleet, technology and more available assets for dispatch.

"Based on our evaluation of the business, we believe Tango has quality customers and drivers, with the majority of their customers overlapping our current customer base,” said Paul Will, Celadon chairman and CEO. “We expect to integrate the acquired operations promptly.”

Through its subsidiaries, Celadon group provides long-haul, regional, local, dedicated intermodal, temperature controlled, flatbed and expedited freight services in the U.S.
