Daseke has announced a second carrier has merged with it in just over a month.

Hornady Transportation is the newest member of Daseke, joining Bulldog Hiway Express, which merged with Daseke in July, as the most recent acquisitions by the company. Daseke operates more than 3,000 tractors and 6,000 flatbed, open-deck trailers.

Hornady Transportation of Monroeville, Ala., which also has a terminal in Birmingham, operates a fleet of 230 late-model tractors and 325 flatbed trailers. They operate east of the Rocky Mountains, primarily supporting the building products and steel industries.

“We continue to grow with elite flatbed and specialty carriers,” said Don Daseke, CEO and chairman of Daseke. “They’re cut from the same cloth as our other companies. Hornady is a well-regarded, third-generation family business with an enviable safety record. They care about their people and love this industry. It’s exciting to have them on board.”
