INDIANAPOLIS - Aug. 11, 2022 - PRLog -- Backhaul Direct, an industry-leading, locally-owned 3PL provider announces its acquisition of Indiana-based Bakers Express and DNK Express—giving them direct access to a fleet of 250+ pieces of equipment and enhancing their ability to effectively address all supply chain needs across North America and beyond.

"By further investing in our asset division, we continue to meet the ever-changing demands of our customers facing capacity constraints. Combining Backhaul Direct's contracted business with Bakers Express and DNK's dedicated business model and customer service driven operation make this acquisition a key component to our overall growth strategy," said Backhaul Direct President and CEO Greg Harris.

DNK Express and Bakers Express are proudly managed by President Dave Kimack—a local transportation expert, helping to drive business in the region, through decades of knowledge, experience, and leadership.

"We are thrilled to be part of an acquisition that will play a pivotal role in streamlining the local and regional supply chain," Dave said. "These additional assets will help alleviate painful supply chain shortages and slowdowns."

This acquisition comes as the company relocates its headquarters to the northeast corner of Indianapolis from downtown, amidst a planned workforce expansion, which will bring new jobs to the northern Marion County/southern Hamilton County area.

Additional manpower, in addition to these newly acquired assets, will allow Backhaul Direct to increase shipping capacity and capabilities—helping shippers move more goods—faster, easing critical supply chain backlogs and delays.

"We are excited to add this additional service offering to our clients under the Backhaul umbrella of companies," said Jared Palmer, Backhaul Direct's Chief Strategy Officer. "This is the first of many acquisitions we plan on making over the next five years in the supply chain solutions arena."

Bakers Express is a dedicated regional private fleet, delivering retail, automotive, and manufacturing services, including spotting, shuttling, drop trailer, and over-the-road—and holds USEPA SmartWay Transport status, reinforcing a commitment to environmental sustainability.
