ABF ACQUIRES SMART LINES TRANSPORTATION GROUP

ABFL

ABF Logistics has purchased Smart Lines Transportation Group, a truckload brokerage firm based in Oklahoma City, for $5.17 million on Jan. 2.

Smart Lines, founded in 2003, has 24 employees and approximately $18 million in annual revenue, primarily serving the food, energy and industrial segments. The acquisition will expand ABF Logistics into the Oklahoma City market.

ABF Logistics is the third-party logistics arm of ArcBest Corp. and a sister company to less-than-truckload carrier ABF Freight.

“The purchase of Smart Lines Transportation Group is an important step in our strategy to grow the emerging businesses at ArcBest and provide a variety of supply chain services to our customers in the way they expect,” said ABF Logistics President Jim Ingram.

Greg Roush, who founded Smart Lines and served as president, has been named branch director of the Oklahoma City location, now officially known as ABF Logistics.
