Boyd Bros. Transportation recently acquired Mid Seven Transportation in Des Moines, Iowa.

Miller Welborn of Transport Capital Partners was the advisor on the purchase.

"We plan to operate Mid Seven autonomously as a separate subsidiary," said Richard Bailey, president of Boyd Bros.

Mid Seven's revenues are expected to exceed $6 million this year. The company, which uses solely owner-operators, focuses primarily on the Midwest with extended lanes in the South, Northeast and Southwest. Mid Seven's freight includes steel, machinery and agricultural equipment transported by flatbeds and drop deck trailers.
