ST. LOUIS, MO – JANUARY 25, 2021 – Associated Couriers, LLC has acquired Specialty Freight & Courier, an on-demand and medical logistics company in Florida. Founded in 1997, Specialty Freight & Courier developed its expertise in regional same-day, final-mile, and next-day transportation services. They currently have offices in Jacksonville, FL and Tampa, FL.
This acquisition allows Associated Couriers to expand regional same-day, last-mile, and next-day transportation services across Florida and neighboring Southeastern states. According to Associated Couriers, LLC CEO Matt Silverberg, “Associated Couriers had a need to service our current customers in the Florida market which triggered our search for an acquisition. Specialty Freight & Courier is a great fit as their core values revolve around providing exceptional customer service. In addition, their focus in the medical sector aligns strategically with the future growth of our network. We couldn’t be happier to welcome all of their employees as they bring a unique skill set in the on-demand specialty that we are hoping to build upon networkwide.”
