Savage Expands Supply Chain Services by Acquiring 3PL Company Trans Dynamics

SALT LAKE CITY (Nov. 20, 2014)—Savage, a leading supply chain solutions company, has acquired third-party logistics company Trans Dynamics, an established provider of over-dimensional, intermodal, LTL and specialized logistics services. With offices in Atlanta and Chicago, Trans Dynamics has extensive carrier relationships across the country and works with customers that are small, medium and large volume shippers to manage freight transportation across a variety of industries.

“We’ve provided logistics services for decades, but with the acquisition of Trans Dynamics we’re now entering the third-party logistics market as well,” said Kirk Aubry, Savage president and chief operating officer. “Our focus is on growing the business and increasing its capabilities and efficiency. We intend to build on the excellent service Trans Dynamics already provides and find ways to add value for customers.”

Trans Dynamics has provided logistics services for 30 years, specializing in full-truck shipments via van, refrigerated, flatbed and step-deck equipment. The company serves a diverse customer base, with agriculture and plastics customers making up 30 percent of its current business.

“We are excited about the many new opportunities Savage offers to our customers, and we are committed to continuing to provide exceptional customer service at every step of the process,” said Dave Kreidler, Trans Dynamics general manager. “Our customers recognize the benefit of having a logistics partner that’s small enough to know their individual needs but large enough to grow with them.”
