  • IMC Companies buys intermodal company, expands national footprint

    IMC Companies has acquired TRANSInternational System, an intermodal company based in Worthington, Ohio, that operates intermodal freight terminals in nine U.S. cities, including Chicago, Atlanta, Cleveland and Memphis.

    “I am impressed with TRANSInternational’s leadership, history, services, values and team members,” Mark H. George, chairman of Memphis-based IMC Companies, said in a release. “I look forward to welcoming their team into our family of brands.”

    IMC will be merging TRANSInternational System’s operations into its companies Ohio Intermodal Services, Intermodal Cartage Company, DNJ Intermodal Services and Atlantic Intermodal Services.

    The acquisition will add 200 TRANSInternational System owner-operators to the IMC Companies team, significantly increasing truck capacity, bolstering its presence in the Ohio Valley and further solidifying its position as the largest marine drayage company in the U.S., according to the release.

    “Like us, they’re a family organization specializing in container drayage and superior customer service,” George said. “This acquisition enhances our existing national footprint that allows us to handle freight in any major rail or port facility in the nation.”

    IMC’s other companies include Gulf Intermodal Services, H&M Intermodal, IMC Chassis Services, Progressive Transportation Services and Pacific Drayage Services, which it launched on the West Coast on Aug. 19. To read more, visit The Daily Memphian.
