Well known for assisting in closing deals with some of the transportation industry’s largest companies, the trucking consulting firm of Ahern and Associates, Ltd., also has a special division reserved for assisting small to medium sized carriers in expanding operations and adding lines to further meet the needs of their customers. So, when a small operating company in California chose to expand their footprint, they called upon Andy Ahern, CEO of Ahern and Associates, who has developed a reputation as the “go-to” person within the transportation industry for quickly locating acquisition targets within trucking, logistics and warehousing.
Ahern immediately went to work to assist them in enhancing their business model in a very short amount of time. As with previous assignments, Ahern quickly zeroed in on Straight Shot Express, a small, but profitable Arizona trucking company running predominantly LTL Van and primarily intrastate Arizona on a “hot shot” basis—all criteria which matched the needs of Ahern’s client.
Over the last few months, Ahern has successfully closed several acquisition assignments for transportation companies of all sizes, from the 1-10 carriers up to companies which generate upwards of 25 billion dollars in annual revenue. Ahern and Associates’ pace for 2012 has already surpassed their record breaking 2011 and shows no signs of slowing given the steep interest in consolidation and expansion within transportation.
“The purpose of our services is to establish long-term relationships, build upon those relationships, and assist our client companies with their planning process, so that they can continue to grow and increase their shareholder value,” explained Ahern.
