Strategic LTL Acquisition Fuels Growth: CrossCountry Freight Solutions Expands with Express 2000 Transportation


Bismarck, ND – July 28, 2023 – North American Holdings, the parent company of CrossCountry Freight Solutions (CCFS), a leading provider of Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) transportation services, is excited to announce the successful acquisition of Express 2000 Transportation, a respected LTL trucking company with an impressive history in the industry.

"This acquisition is a significant and noteworthy development for our company," said Eric Bischke, CEO of CCFS. "By bringing Express 2000 into our family, we are uniting the best of both companies to become a stronger, more versatile freight solutions provider. This acquisition not only expands our operations but also reinforces our commitment to achieving universal prosperity."

Express 2000 Transportation and CrossCountry Freight Solutions had already established a working relationship as a limited interline partner, which highlighted the immense potential for synergy and growth. The acquisition is a natural progression of this existing partnership, showcasing the shared values and alignment of missions between the two organizations.

"Express 2000 Transportation has a strong track record of prioritizing customer satisfaction, operational excellence, and a commitment to delivering on promises – values that deeply resonate with our own mission," added Bischke. "By joining forces, we can collectively work towards achieving universal prosperity and continue to exceed our customers' expectations."

The acquisition expands CCFS's footprint with the addition of Express 2000’s three service center locations in Missouri – St. Louis, Springfield, and Kansas City. This geographical expansion enables CCFS to directly serve customers in Missouri, resulting in faster transit times and improved accessibility.

CCFS will work closely with the newly acquired team from Express 2000 to leverage synergies and identify opportunities for growth, further enhancing the value delivered to customers.

"We are confident that this acquisition will present new opportunities for personal and professional growth for all our team members," said Bischke. "It is an exciting time to be a part of CrossCountry Freight Solutions, and we look forward to everyone working together to achieve even greater success in the future."

With the shared vision of universal prosperity, CrossCountry Freight Solutions aims to continue providing exceptional freight solutions to its customers, fostering sustainable growth, and reinforcing its position as a leader in the LTL industry.
