LOS ANGELES, Aug. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Total Transportation Services, a leading provider of drayage and over-the-road trucking services is pleased to announce the acquisition of Tri Pak, Inc. (“Tri Pak”), a transloading, warehousing, and logistics company which has been servicing clients around the Port of Tacoma for over three decades.
The acquisition expands TTSI’s geographic footprint from Southern California, Stockton and Virginia to the Pacific Northwest. Tri Pak provides transloading, value-added warehousing, drayage, long-haul and brokerage trucking services. With Tri Pak servicing clients from six facilities in the state of Washington, this expands TTSI’s services and capabilities in one of the most important logistics markets in North America.

We are very excited to welcome Tri Pak to the TTSI family. This acquisition expands our presence into the Washington market where we can now service TTSI’s existing clients out of the Ports of Seattle and Tacoma.”
