"Having closed our sixth recent acquisition, we will continue the momentum and execution of our plan to become one of the largest asset-based logistics providers headquartered in Indiana," said Kalvin Cook, Online Transport CEO. "This will require Online to continue to pursue strategic acquisitions with other dry and refrigerated freight carriers and logistics providers."

"The integration of a fleet that has been consistently recognized as the Carrier of the Year with MasterBrand Cabinets, with our fleet that was recognized as the 2022 Toyota Carrier of the Year, is going to create one of the most highly-skilled truckload companies on the road today."
