Silicon Valley-based RK Logistics Group Holdings, Inc., recently announced it has expanded its network with the acquisition of New York-based On Time Trucking.

A local trucking and logistics company based in Farmingdale, New York, On Time Trucking has more than four decades of experience serving the Tri-State area providing regional less-than-truckload freight delivery, with specific expertise and capabilities in high-value, local interline services encompassing New York City’s five boroughs, New Jersey and Long Island. 

“On Time Trucking is one of the Tri-State’s most successful trucking and logistics firms, with an excellent reputation for reliable, cost-effective service throughout the five boroughs,” said Joe Maclean, chairman and chief executive officer of RK Logistics Group Holdings. “This is a highly strategic acquisition for RK that allows us to offer lithium-ion battery and material storage services to support our energy transition customers on the East Coast.”

Maclean also said On Time Trucking’s founder, Daniel Leitgeb, will continue leading the company as its president, ensuring a smooth transition, and maintaining the exceptional service standards that have defined the brand.

“I am thrilled about the opportunities that joining RK Logistics brings to On Time Trucking. With our shared commitment to excellence, I am confident that this partnership will lead to further growth and innovation in the logistics industry,” said Leitgeb. “I look forward to continuing to provide our clients with the outstanding service they have come to expect from On Time Trucking.”

An asset-based company, On-Time Trucking operates an extensive fleet of tractors, trailers and straight trucks, supported by a team of 100 employees and a modern 60,000 square foot, 40-dock-door warehousing facility in Farmingdale. On Time Trucking’s portfolio offers a variety of logistics, inventory support and local and regional delivery services. These include consolidation and distribution, general warehousing, pick and pack, labeling and fulfillment, and expedited, white glove and lift-gate service for same-day, next-day, or deferred volume truckload and LTL shipments.
