TFI International (T-Force Parent Company) has acquired Hot Line Freight System. With their 14 terminals, 200 employees, 100 tractors, and 200 vans, they provide one to two-day service in the Midwestern USA: Wisconsin. Minsesota, Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, South Dakota, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio
 
TFI got to them before Knight Swift
Knight swift has coverage there they need northeast and southeast coverage if abf settles their contract and he gets them i am curios if he renames tforce different name after sale to dump whats left of the former company
like hes starting fresh with abf sells the former ups now tforce to knight swift the coverage they need food for thought buying that company i bet he will shutter union terminals in their area

Knight Swift would never buy a union company. Also knight swift doesn’t need a southeast carrier.
 
What usually happens when a non union company gets bought by a union company is the non union employees( having no rights under contract) are let go if the companies merge.
Since this company is ltl and very small, tfi probably purchased them for their property, and plans to consolidate more terminals in the Midwest. The trucks are all white, so it looks like an easy rebrand. I suspect we will be hearing about some Midwest consolidation in the coming year.


It is more truckload than ltl, based on their website.

They are a lowball freight rate hauler , so they move a lot of cheap freight & get ready to run hard !!
 
Hotline is Non-Union , so expect more freight to got o them , like the old CF & CCX scam deal many years ago !
Strange gambit, buy a large union carrier, and then but a tiny non union regional carrier, and try to make it all non union. TFI should have just bought one of the many non union ltls, man, TFI executives are really 🔩. Not really, probably just purchased them for the real estate.

If you read the article in freight waves they need coverage on the whole east coast from top to bottom maine down to Florida thats why they went after pit duiye and ward with no success

Freightwaves ? They just repost other news reports, and add a few lines of speculation.

AAA Cooper covers from Florida Thru North Carolina and west to Texas. So they need Virginia north and west to Indiana.
 
With 14 terminals, 200 employees, 100 late model tractors, and 200-53’ air ride logistic trailers, Hot Line Freight is one of the premier Midwest Regional LTL companies & freight carriers providing excellent service to Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
Take a look at some of their terminals- some 12 - 16 door terminals, nothing most carriers would want. One terminal's address is actually MME(knight/Swift co)
