Celadon Canada to Be Merged Into Hyndman Operations

Company to be focused on one operation throughout Canada

Celadon Group, Inc., one of North America’s premier transportation and logistics companies, has announced the merger of their Celadon Canada operations into the Hyndman brand. While the official effective date for the merger is July 1, 2015, the companies are currently in the process of taking the necessary step to become one entity.

“We have come to realize the strength of the Hyndman name in Canada,” commented Paul Will, president and CEO of the Celadon Group. “Hyndman has always promoted and supported a family atmosphere for their drivers and staff. This merger reinforces that core value of the company.”

The Celadon Group first established its operations in Canada with the purchase of Gerth Transport Ltd. in May of 1998. In 2000, the name was changed to Celadon Canada. Two years ago, Celadon acquired Hyndman Transport (1972) Limited and operated Hyndman as an entity separated from Celadon Canada. Later in 2013, the Celadon Groups acquired both Hoss Carthage and Yanke Transfer and merged these companies into its operations in Canada.

“Our success over the years stems from the strong loyalty and dedicated service of our driver fleet,” stated Mike Campbell, president of Hyndman. “In addition, we have always been fortunate to have great relationships established with our many customers throughout Canada.”

Hyndman will continue to operate one of the newest company trucking fleets in Canada. In addition, Hyndman owner operators will continue to have access to the newest trucks and secondto- none leasing packages.

“We will remain focused on providing each and every one of our customers with unparalleled service,” added Campbell. “And our drivers will continue to benefit from our unrelenting focus on technology and safety.”
