Greatwide Logistics acquires Camrett

Greatwide Logistics Services, a Dallas TX-based provider of non-asset-based transportation and third-party logistics services, has acquired Wytheville VA-based Camrett Inc. and related companies.

Privately held Camrett provides dedicated contract carriage services to clients across a variety of industries including grocery, wholesale, retail, and automotive. Key customers include The Kroger Co, Pepsi Bottling Group, Gatorade, Crown Cork & Seal, Cardinal Glass, TRW Steering Gears, and Volvo Logistics.

Camrett will be integrated into Greatwide's Dedicated Transport business unit, which is the largest of Greatwide's business units and the second-largest dedicated contract carriage provider in the United States.

Founded in 1995, Camrett has grown from a single-location dedicated contract carriage operator to one that serves customers in multiple terminals in Virginia, Indiana, and Georgia. The company has approximately 90 company drivers, operates a fleet of about 80 tractors, and in 2007, generated roughly $16.5 million in revenue.
