CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, JANUARY 23, 2019 – Redwood Logistics (“Redwood”), a strategically-integrated North American logistics company, announced today that it acquired LTX Solutions (“LTX”), a provider of less than truckload (“LTL”) freight management and transportation supply chain solutions based in Atlanta, Georgia. Redwood is owned by company management and CI Capital Partners. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The transaction provides Redwood with an attractive opportunity for growth in the Southeastern U.S. market, and Redwood plans to continue to invest in LTX’s current management team to increase its presence in the region.

“Redwood’s core competencies have set the benchmark for integrated third-party logistics providers, and the addition of LTX expands and amplifies what makes Redwood special,” Redwood CEO Mark Yeager said. “What drew us to LTX was not only its market expertise and past success, but its people. LTX’s passion for its customers, entrepreneurial spirit, deep interest in personal and professional growth, and desire to cultivate an uplifting and energetic environment aligns seamlessly with Redwood’s core values.”
“The union of LTX and Redwood is a natural next step in our collective evolution, and we are excited to provide more value and depth to our customer base,” LTX’s McDaniel added. “We are thrilled to realize the combined value of our resources.
