PS Logistics Continues Expansion with the Acquisition of Clay’s Transport, Inc. and Clays Logistics LLC 11.10.2022

The transaction marks PS Logistics’ fifth acquisition of 2022, further establishing the company in the Southeast by adding new terminal in Brookhaven, MS.

November 10, 2022 – (BIRMINGHAM, AL) – P&S Transportation LLC (“P&S”), a PS Logistics subsidiary, announced today that it has purchased all substantial transportation assets of Clay’s Transport, Inc. and Clays Logistics LLC (“Clay’s”), a privately-owned interstate trucking and brokerage company that specializes in flatbed shipping in the southeastern United States.

Headquartered in Brookhaven, MS, Clay’s maintains a fleet of 35 tractors and 50 trailers. Clay’s primarily hauls general flatbed freight, including lumber, metals, and steel – types of freight in which P&S also specializes.

“Clay’s brings great freight synergies to both our companies as well as our customers,” said Mr. Scott Smith, Chief Executive Officer of PS Logistics. “It also further establishes our driver base in the Southeast and adds our first trucking terminal in Mississippi to our growing national network.”

The acquisition will provide Clay’s, its customers, and its drivers with additional capacity, new service offerings, and increased economies of scale.

Organizationally, Clay’s will be managed by Mr. James Waldrop as a separate division of P&S under the leadership of Mr. Houston Vaughn, P&S’ President and COO. Clay’s will continue to operate under the “Clay’s Transport” brand name.

“P&S will be a great partner for our business,” Waldrop said. “Both of our companies are committed to our drivers and their success, and we share a positive culture that creates an ideal environment for everyone to grow and prosper.”

The Clay’s acquisition continues PS Logistics’ acquisition strategy of partnering with families and owners within the flatbed trucking segment. Since 2016, PS Logistics has successfully acquired 26 trucking and brokerage operations. Financial terms of the Clay’s transaction were not disclosed.
