This Logistics and Trucking Company is a prime candidate for merger or Private Equity Group acquisition. Principal has developed a four prong business model supported by a highly effective management team, back office, and maintenance programs that allow for operational efficiency and unlimited potential for scale.
Company more than doubled its revenue year over year 2021 to 2022, and is on track to double revenue again in 2023. Here’s how they achieved it:
First, The Company owns and maintains an in-house fleet for dedicated routes. Those routes are in place and running daily. However, the synergistic business structure also includes Fleet Maintenance and Logistics.
