EXECUTIVE SUMMARY S-744
INTERMODAL CONTAINER STORAGE AND LOGISTICS COMPANY
This long-established and well-respected firm began as a local trucking business and expanded to become one of the Midwest’s leading intermodal providers. Known for its logistical expertise and superior customer service, the Company has steadily grown and evolved over the past three decades to become a top tier competitor in the movement of freight across the country and around the world.
Currently, the Company is operating as a licensed freight broker and a cargo container depot. Dedicated to the storage, maintenance, and repair of intermodal ocean cargo containers, the Company holds one of only two county-issued permits to “store and stack” these containers, making it one of the only providers of these services within a 35 mile area. From its modern facility and container yard, the Company not only provides a full menu of storage and repair services for its clients, but also offers full freight logistical support “from the ramp to the customer’s door.”
The container yard represents a significant asset for a potential buyer. Situated on 18.9 acres near major interstate and rail centers, the fully paved yard has a state-of-the-art security and surveillance system, a 6-bay repair shop manned by container industry certified personnel, a spacious office building, and a fully computerized billing and equipment control systems. The facility is U.S. Customs bonded and hazardous materials approved. For the past several years, the Company has contracted the operation and management of its yard to an outside expert -- a firm that is well-known in the intermodal industry.
The owner is pursuing other business and personal interests out of state, and feels the time is right to sell this Company. With its strong competitive edge, solid reputation, and exceptional assets, this Company is an ideal strategic acquisition candidate for a company already in the intermodal industry, or a trucking, railroad, or steamship firm looking to expand its options. A “hands on” buyer with stronger financial and personnel resources can easily take this firm to the next level.
