TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quality Carriers, Inc. ("Quality Carriers"), the leading North American bulk chemical carrier, has expanded into the Kimper, Kentucky market. "As the leading bulk carrier in North America, when one of our customers asked us to consider affiliating a small bulk carrier servicing their coal customers in Kentucky, we listened," commented Randy Strutz, President, Quality Carriers. "We've partnered with SF Transport Holdings, a family-owned bulk carrier, which services the coal industry in Kentucky and West Virginia." "As a small local carrier, the affiliation with Quality Carriers made sense for us. This gives us access to their large trailer fleet, a nationwide terminal network, and leading technology," stated Jim Slater, President, SF Transport Holdings. "As we want to expand, Quality Carriers is enabling this by supporting our needs for equipment and working capital." "We continue to review other under-served markets and expect to expand our footprint to serve our customers and increase our driver capacity," continued Randy Strutz.
