LSO, a regional parcel carrier based in the southern US, has announced the acquisition of Express Courier International (ECI), a same-day carrier in the south east and mid-south regions of the US. Through the acquisition LSO expects to create a larger regional parcel carrier providing shipping solutions spanning across 13 states in the southern US.
“At LSO, we are pleased to join forces with ECI as we expand our service area across the south eastern US,” said Rick Jones, Chief Executive Officer of LSO. “The powerful combination of ECI and LSO provides us the rare opportunity to deliver a unique set of product and service offerings – from same day to day-definite guaranteed deliveries – to our customers that you just can’t find anywhere else.”
LSO and Express will provide customers with a regional express solution offering a combination of on-demand, scheduled/ routed, distribution, warehousing and day-definite guaranteed products.
The combined companies are backed by Atlanta-based private equity firm Eagle Merchant Partners.
