Daseke Inc., a provider of flatbed, open-deck and specialized trucking capacity, announced a merger with R&R Trucking, a specialized transporter of defense and commercial AA&E (arms, ammunitions and explosives) cargo. This marks Daseke’s fourth company addition since May 1.
“R&R Trucking is highly specialized, transporting the nation’s most sensitive cargo. Fewer than 20 companies in the United States are approved to provide transportation for the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy. They are also one of the very few companies approved by the Department of Defense to own and operate high security terminals,” said Don Daseke, president and chief executive officer of Daseke Inc. “We took Daseke public in February of this year to accelerate our vision of building North America’s premier flatbed and specialized transportation company. We continue to attract top-tier companies to join us as we build upon our national scale and further enhance the synergies throughout our unique transportation network.”
