Bensenville, IL – January 25, 2016 - Central States Trucking (CST), founded in 1980, and currently one of the fastest growing trucking companies in the Midwest (12 National Offices, with over 750 total Employees and Drivers), has acquired Ace Cargo, LLC. The combined entity will become the largest and most complete Intermodal Drayage Service Provider in the state of Indiana and greater Indianapolis market.
All of the management, office staff, and drivers of Ace Cargo will transition to CST and will continue to provide the same high level of service to the Indianapolis shippers and receivers as they have done since 1997. CST expects to further increase its existing driver base in this location to over 110 drivers in the coming months due to new business brought on by this transaction.
In addition, the transaction will provide an opportunity for CST to expand upon their local Indianapolis intermodal services. Ron Vales, SVP of CST stated “Ace Cargo was the dominant local Indianapolis service provider with a long standing reputation for outstanding service. We look forward to offering many of those customers even more service options through our existing infrastructure”.
David Benbenek, President of Ace Cargo, added, “Joining the CST team is a great fit for both our customers and employees. I have no doubt that our existing customers will benefit from CST’s tremendous Chicago supply-chain infrastructure and ability to better service the greater Indiana marketplace”.
