TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quality Carriers, Inc.

"Consistent with our previously mentioned strategy to expand our footprint, we are excited to announce our expansion into the Charleston market," stated Randy Strutz, President, Quality Carriers. "When one of our major customers asked us for a solution in this market, we responded by leveraging our existing Boasso intermodal terminal."
