Nolan Transportation Group announced that the LTL freight brokerage company, FreightPros, has been acquired and positioned as NTG’s LTL solution under the brand “FreightPros powered by NTG.” FreightPros was originally acquired in December of 2019 by Transportation Insight, sister company to NTG, and has since been optimized to bring class-leading LTL solutions to NTG’s diverse shipper network.
Founded in 2009 in Austin, FreightPros provides best-in-class freight services combined with deep expertise in the LTL brokerage market. As a result of the acquisition, NTG will strategically align brokerage models and leverage synergies to strengthen its multimodal service offering.
“NTG will leverage the FreightPros network and expertise to complement our historical strength in full truckload shipping,” said Geoff Kelley, president of NTG. “FreightPros brings an innovative model and established relationships that allow us to further expand our footprint across multimodal solutions for our customers with more efficient processes and competitive rates.”
A challenge within the industry, LTL is a highly sought-after service requiring labor-intensive planning, strategy and execution. The FreightPros platform transcends the industry-standard LTL brokerage model through innovative customer onboarding and discovery matched with advanced technology that drives carrier performance insights. Through this service model, FreightPros can connect shippers to reliable, longstanding LTL carrier partners and serve as an extension of the customer’s logistical team.
“The whole team couldn’t be more excited to join forces with NTG and drive a united culture that leads the industry in service and scale,” said Chris Clever, SVP of LTL solutions at FreightPros. “Through this integration process, there has been good synergy on all sides, and we’re looking forward to streamlining opportunities and optimizing all of our operations for our customer networks.”
With a shift in the industry and high demand coming from e-commerce, combining the resources of NTG and sister company Transportation Insight with the expertise of the FreightPros’ team will create a more comprehensive go-to-market service offering to bring to existing and prospective clients.
