  • Industry leader – and Memphis-based company – adds Ohio firm to its family

    A Memphis-area truckload carrier is continuing to grow its national footprint.

    IMC Cos., a national leader in intermodal logistics, announced it acquired Ohio-based TRANSInternational System, effective Oct. 18. TRANSInternational, a family-run intermodal transportation company, was founded in 1973 by Jack Stewart, according to its website. It has nine intermodal freight locations across the U.S., including one in Memphis.

    IMC will merge TRANSInternational’s operations into several of its companies: Ohio Intermodal Services, Intermodal Cartage Company, DNJ Intermodal Services, and Atlantic Intermodal Services.

    “I am impressed with TRANSInternational’s leadership, history, services, values, and team members,” said IMC chairman Mark H. George, in a release. “I look forward to welcoming their team into our family of brands.”

    According to company officials, the acquisition of TRANSInternational not only increases IMC’s truck capacity, but it further solidifies its position as the largest marine drayage in the U.S. and strengthens its presence in the Ohio Valley.

    “Like us, they’re a family organization specializing in container drayage and superior customer service,” George said. “This acquisition enhances our existing national footprint that allows us to handle freight in any major rail or port facility in the nation.” To read more, visit The Memphis Business Journal.
