Echo Global Logistics Inc. has acquired Comcar Logistics, a non-asset-based truckload brokerage based in Jacksonville, Fla.
Founded in 2011, Comcar focuses primarily on serving the southeastern and Rocky Mountain regions. It is led by Lane Turner, who will serve as a regional vice president. Douglas R. Waggoner, chief executive officer of Echo Global Logistics, said Comcar was “a good fit both strategically and culturally with our organization,” and will strengthen the company’s presence in the southeastern states and Colorado. Echo is a provider of transportation and supply-chain management services, delivered on a proprietary technology platform.
