LGT acquires Jason Thomas Trucking
The acquisition of Hastings, Nebraska-based Jason Thomas Trucking boosts LGT Transport’s growth in the agricultural sector, officials said.
“Jason Thomas Trucking shares our same commitment to drivers and customers,” said Pam Spaccarotella, chief executive and founder of LGT Transport. “We believe together, we will create an even greater extended offering for our customers.”
LGT Transport did not disclose the price of the acquisition.
As part of the transaction, Jason Thomas Trucking drivers and operational employees will join the LGT Transport team. LGT Transport will also acquire eight tractors and 11 trailers.
The current team of Jason Thomas Trucking drivers will continue to operate out of Hastings to maintain a location for customers of liquid fertilizer transportation.
