TFI makes a US Acquisition - Schilli Corp.
« on: March 07, 2019, 03:26:56 AM »
I don't recall seeing pictures of this carrier.
Charlie?
Paul?

TFI International Inc. (TSX: TFII, OTCQX: TFIFF), a North American leader in the transportation and logistics industry, today announced that a wholly-owned subsidiary of TFI International has acquired Schilli Corporation (“Schilli”). Founded in the early 1960s and based in St. Louis, Missouri, Schilli specializes in the transportation of dry and liquid bulk and offers dedicated fleet solutions and other value-add services throughout the Midwest, Southeast and Gulf Coast regions of the United States.

With its more than 400 employees, Schilli operates 22 facilities across its service region and has a fleet of over 340 tractors, including independent contractors, and more than 500 trailers. TFI International has a leading market position in Specialized Truckload in Canada, and this acquisition expands this business line into the United States. Schilli will operate as a standalone business unit within TFI’s Specialized Truckload group, with Bob Schilli, Jr. and John Koons continuing in their roles.

Schilli was one of the in house carriers for USG and National Gypsum sheetrock plants at Shoals , Indiana .
This immage would be one of their new trucks . The trailer # 48795 indicates it is a 48' trailer .
The truck is loaded with 8 paper rolls used for backing on sheetrock board .
Rolls are loaded sideways like giant toilet paper rolls and would weigh 48,500 to 49,800 pounds .

  Did TFI buy them from Daseke? Daseke is swallowing them fast in the US, around 17 carriers and their subsidiaries so far. About $1.6 Bln USD in sales last year.

I'm shocked at how many of the bigger or well known flatbedder names they have under their umbrella. Could have just as well been a list of fallen flags.  Maybe technically so, at least partly.

Finally, Transforce acquires a company that uses plain nondescript rigs.

Look at all those national names. I'm surprised this is the first I've heard of Daseke.
