Greenville, South Carolina-based Dedicated Transport Solutions acquired

January 26, 2022

Greenville, South Carolina-based Dedicated Transport Solutions (DTS) has been acquired by Atlanta-based trucking company Ascend.

Ascend, a dryvan full truckload carrier, earlier this month acquired Jackson, Tennessee-based Milan Supply Chain Solutions and its subsidiary J&B Services. The acquisition of DTS expands Ascend’s dedicated contract carriage business and further broadens the company’s coverage of the southeastern seaboard in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and into Louisiana, Texas and Ohio.

Given the challenging nature and headwinds of the supply chain for shippers, DTS President and Founder Scott Stowers said DTS’s customers “will enjoy the expanded capacity and capabilities of the combined company” post-acquisition.
