Expanded-Metal Supplier Forms Trucking Company
Tuesday, November 22, 2005
Expanded Solutions, LLC, Oklahoma City, OK, has formed its own trucking company, Expanded Logistics Solutions, LLC, in an effort to rein in high transportation costs.
“Because of the Department of Transportation change in hours-of-service rules and elevated fuel cost, transportation has become an alarmingly high part of our cost of doing business,” explains Vic Johnston, Expanded Solutions manager of logistics. “The formulation of a separate company with the authority to haul for hire will enable us to back-haul all of our own steel and also the inbound freight for others.”
Expanded Solutions provides expanded metals, security mesh, mini-mesh and expanded grating to North American customers via manufacturing plants in Oklahoma City and Wewoka, OK.
