Valley Cartage Acquires Additional LTL Business

Posted on Tue, Jun 26, 2012

Valley Cartage Company, Inc., headquartered in Hudson, WI, announces that it has added the less-than-truckload (LTL) business, formerly handled by Lawrence Transportation Company, to its roster of accounts.

Valley Cartage will begin providing LTL service to customers formerly served by Lawrence Transportation’s LTL division beginning June 30, 2012. In a letter to its customers, Eric Lawrence, President of Lawrence Transportation Company, stated that “there are other companies, such as Valley, that simply do a better job than we are able to do, and have made a large investment in their technology and fleet in order to provide you with excellent service.” After exiting the LTL sector, Lawrence will focus mainly on its core truckload and protective services business.

Todd Gilbert, President of Valley Cartage, stated “Lawrence Transportation is a first class organization that has a fine reputation in the industry. We certainly appreciate the opportunity to provide service to their LTL customers and look forward to building new relationships with them through the Valley Family of Companies.”
