Newark, N.J.-based truckload carrier SalSon Logistics has expanded its fleet with the addition of 50 Freightliner Select 2007 or newer tractors.

"It's an exciting time at SalSon because we're growing and are able to offer more than ever to our customers," said Travis Smith, SalSon executive vice president. "These 50 additional trucks represent our commitment to servicing customers. We want to accommodate the increased business from our existing transportation partners and the addition of some key new partners."

The new trucks will be used in the company's expanding truckload segment as well as its load-to-ride (LTR) and dedicated fleets.

The company is a full service truckload, dedicated contract carriage, LTR, and warehouse provider. The truckload division is located in Conley, Ga.

Earlier in the summer, SalSon, a SmartWay Partner, added 60 new Wabash Duraplate HD trailers to its fleet.

"We're ready to service any customer needs right now," said Smith. "We foresee even more growth on the horizon and we'll be well prepared to handle it."
