Dedicated Transport Holdings, a privately held company headquartered in Cleveland, has acquired All Star Transportation, with locations in Clearwater, Fla., and New Castle, Del.
All Star Transportation provides liquid bulk trucking services to water treatment plants throughout the U.S.

"We are excited about this acquisition because it fits our growth strategy which calls for Dedicated Transport Holdings to acquire a number of mid-size trucking companies over the next several years," said Frank Wagner, president and CEO of Dedicated Transport Holdings. "We also were able to retain good employees with a great work ethic."

All Star Transportation, LLC, as the company will be known going forward, will retain its management team and its 40 drivers. Dedicated's growth plan calls for hiring an additional 20 drivers over the next year.
