January, 2013 - Cavalier Announces a New Partnership!
Cavalier is pleased to announce their partnership with RIST Transportation Ltd. Based in the Northeastern United States, RIST has 11 terminal locations spanning Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. In partnering with Cavalier, RIST Transport brings their extensive network onboard to better serve customers.
Not only does RIST offer expedited coverage to the Northeastern states; they bring a long and proud history. RIST Transport's parent company, Wadhams Enterprises Inc., has provided customers across the United States with excellent service since 1949. Wadhams looks forward to the opportunity to deliver exceptional customer service north of the border.
Steve Wadhams, Owner and President of Wadhams Enterprises said, "We at RIST Transport Ltd., and the Wadhams family, are thrilled to team up with Cavalier Transportation and the Ledson family. The common goals, culture, philosophies, and basic values, could not be more in sync between the two companies. This partnership provides a strong level of accountability and a service commitment that is unmatched by the competition. The territories of both companies complement each other and offer terminal conveniences that make the transfer of freight seamless. This will allow us to expand our service areas for our current customers and entice new customers that are looking for that perfect logistic bridge across our Canada / USA borders."
Two-day service between the Northeast USA and Canada's busiest traffic lane, Ontario and Quebec, is just one of the highlights of the union. This partnership also offers customers freight consolidation, warehousing on both sides of the border and a single point of contact for all service inquiries.
According to Cavalier's Executive Vice-President Sales & Marketing, Brian Ledson, "We are very excited about our new partnership with RIST Transport. Our two companies share a passion for service and excellence. Bringing two family owned and operated companies together is like the perfect marriage. This partnership brings Cavalier a strong presence in Northeastern USA and expands our footprint. We look forward to the opportunities ahead".
