Pride Group Logistics (“PGL”), known as one of North America’s most sustainably minded, reliable, and fastest-growing truckload carriers, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Arnold Transportation Services. Based in Grand Prairie, Texas, Arnold Transportation operates a fleet of 414 tractors and 1,400 dry vans within the U.S.
“The acquisition of Arnold Transportation Services will allow us to expand our U.S. domestic transportation offering to new and existing customers. We look forward to providing Arnold with many additional resources that will help grow the fleet and continue to provide safe and high-quality transportation services to customers. I am also happy to announce that Michael J DelBovo will remain President of Arnold Transportation Services,” said Aman Johal, Vice President of Pride Group.
“Arnold Transportation Service is ‘the Original Regional Carrier.’ We are a full-service asset-based truckload carrier headquartered in Grand Prairie, Texas. Arnold’s heritage dates back to the 1930s, at which time we established a strong foundation in Safety and Regional Service. Today, we provide Truckload Services Dedicated Solutions and Logistics Support. Our operations are strategically concentrated in the South Central and Midwest states. A family-owned and operated venture, Arnold operates in regional markets for customers who require a flexible, performance-driven carrier.” – Michael J DelBovo, Arnold Transportation Services President.
PGL is committed to growing the service offering of Arnold by adding new equipment into the fleet as well as plans to add a refrigerated division to the company in 2022. The acquisition will bring up PGL’s total fleet of transportation assets to 805 trucks and 2,600 trailers.
“We understand the growing needs of the industry and the need to continue to grow and scale up our business to do our part to keep the supply chain moving for our customers. This acquisition is an exciting step in our company history, however, it is just one of the many steps that we will be taking to ensure the longevity and ongoing high-quality service our clients have come to expect. As a client-focused company, we will work to continue to grow to meet the needs of our current and future clients amid disturbances due to lack of equipment and personnel by investing in our biggest asset — our team. In this way, we can continue to grow the Pride Group Logistics family strategically,” said Johal.
