November 29, 2021

Werner Enterprises (CCJ Top 250, No. 13) on Monday announced it has acquired Monroe, Connecticut-based NEHDS for $64 million – a move that expands the Omaha, Nebraska-based mega-carrier’s final mile capacity.

NEHDS operates a fleet of over 400-plus delivery trucks primarily in the Northeast and Midwest U.S. and delivers primarily bulky products with a two-person delivery team performing residential and commercial deliveries through a network of 19 cross-dock, warehouse and customer facilities.

“The addition of the NEHDS operations, management team, talented staff and strong customer relationships to the Werner family represents a significant step forward in our Final Mile delivery program,” said Derek Leathers, Werner chairman, president and chief executive officer. “The combination of award-winning service that NEHDS provides to its clients, along with the comprehensive portfolio of trucking capability, final mile logistics services and technology will bring the Werner and NEHDS customer base many advantages.”
