[ August 16, 2019   //   ]

RoadOne IntermodaLogistics, a leading single source intermodal, distribution and logistics services company throughout North America, announces the launch of RoadOne LogisticSolutions (ROLS), a full-service drayage brokerage division. With its headquarters in Tampa, ROLS will provide end-to-end drayage brokerage and related logistics services enabling RoadOne to continue its national intermodal network expansion efforts and better serve its customers’ supply chain requirements.

Josh Harris will head up this new, neutral brokerage division along with a knowledgeable, highly capable team with over 20 years of experience building national transportation brokerage companies. ROLS will enhance RoadOne’s 2,000 truck assets with unlimited capacity from the company’s trusted, high-quality partner carrier network in North America. Today, changing market dynamics due to e-commerce makes it critical for shippers to have timely logistics services to reach customers more quickly and reliably.

ROLS will be backed by an industry-leading technology platform that provides real-time visibility to shipments including geofencing and analytics, so customers and internal teams know the status of their cargo at any given time.

“The introduction of ROLS is critical to serving the changing needs of our customers’ supply chains that require speed to market, flexibility and ease of business,” said Ken Kellaway, CEO of RoadOne IntermodaLogistics. “ROLS strengthens our position as a single source provider with increased capacity and comprehensive intermodal logistics solutions.”

“Launching ROLS is an important step in delivering greater reliability, transparency and visibility to our customers’ drayage and related logistics needs in an environment fraught with ongoing market and infrastructure challenges. In addition, ROLS serves to bring greater efficiency and supply chain performance improvements to global supply chains,” said Kendall Kellaway III, Vice President, Commercial at RoadOne IntermodaLogistics.

RoadOne delivers port and rail container drayage, terminal operations, dedicated truckload services, transloading, warehousing and distribution solutions across the United States and Canada. As a leading national intermodal drayage and logistics provider, RoadOne has over 60 locations, 2,000 trucks and multiple service brands and solutions including First Coast Logistics and United Global Logistics, all acquired as part of a strategic effort to expand RoadOne’s service capacity and geographic coverage.
