Third Acquisition Expands HTL Freight Offerings Into Less-than-Truckload Shipments
Charlotte, NC & Lake Zurich, IL, SEPTEMBER 7, 2022 – In keeping with its vision to be a leading 3PL and freight solutions company, Charlotte-based third-party logistics brokerage, HTL Freight, has acquired Lake Zurich-based 3PL, ATTS Logistics. This transaction follows HTL’s acquisition of drayage and transload specialist Matchmaker Logistics in November 2021.
This acquisition expands HTL Freight offerings into less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments, a $40-billion-plus market annually. Founded in 1999 by Greg & Sharon Hatz in the greater Chicago area, ATTS has a proven track record and a robust service offering including partial, LTL, and air. Mr. and Mrs. Hatz along with the entire ATTS team will become part of the HTL Freight family.
The acquisition expands HTL Freight’s footprint across North America, allowing the company to offer additional freight solutions to shippers, while its strong network of carriers will benefit from increased asset utilization due to the expanded types of loads accepted.
“This acquisition increases our capabilities, our service offerings, and gives us a presence in the robust Chicago freight market,” said HTL Freight CEO Onu Okebie. “Strategically, this positions HTL as a true one-stop-shop and allows us the opportunity to fulfill our customers’ LTL needs.”
“This move to be a part of the growing and dynamic team at HTL Freight creates the opportunity to do more for our customers and our employees,” jointly stated by Greg & Sharon Hatz. “We are excited to see what the future holds under the HTL Freight umbrella.”
HTL Freight’s state-of-the-art technology platform matched by its people’s deep shipping industry experience remains the company’s success factor. “We are impressed by the business that Greg and Sharon have built, and the high quality of client relationships the ATTS team have nurtured. We plan to introduce workflow efficiencies and reporting through our state-of-the-art technology platform, which will strengthen those relationships even more,” says HTL Freight CFO Brian Boland.
