CEO Comments

Bradley Jacobs, chairman and chief executive officer, said, “Our strategy is to scale up our operations through acquisitions, cold-starts and organic growth. Our first acquisition is Continental Freight Services, a 32-year-old company based in South Carolina with a loyal customer base and excellent employees. Continental is a good strategic fit because we can scale it up quickly by adding salespeople and carrier capacity.”
