CCP Client 'CO335'
Nationwide Freight Transportation and Logistics
Company with State-of-the-Art Technology

Clayton Capital Partners is pleased to exclusively represent CO335 (the “Company”) in the sale of its business. Located in the Midwest, CO335 is a nationwide freight transportation and logistics company with state-of-the-art technology.

Customized Technology and Automation – The Company utilizes a robust Trucking Management Software (TMS) system in combination with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). The TMS system allows CO335 to use the latest computing technology and automate a significant amount of work. The software can track numerous KPIs, generate reports and provide real-time information for each area of the business. By connecting the TMS with EDI, communications with its customers are streamlined.

Focus on Driver Recruitment and Retention – In an industry with a scarcity of drivers, the Company excels at attracting and retaining these crucial employees, consistently beating industry average turnover rates. CO335 has become an employer of choice because of its focus on drivers.

Customer Diversity and Longevity – The Company serves customers in a wide variety of industries including grocery, packaging, consumer goods and retail. This diversity of customers and goods carried makes the Company resistant to downturns in any one industry. CO335’s customers are spread across the U.S., giving the Company a wide geographical reach. In addition, the Company has built long-term relationships with customers based on its exceptional service and capabilities.

Large State-of-the-Art Fleet – CO335 maintains one of the newest fleets in the industry including over 650 tractors, replacing them every three years. Newer vehicles mean the best performance, fewer breakdowns and repairs, along with high driver satisfaction. The Company fields top-of-the-line models optimized for aerodynamic performance, living space and fuel efficiency. Investing in the reliability of its vehicles ensures fewer inconveniences to valued customers and drivers. In addition, the Company owns over 2,900 trailers. Having so many more trailers enable drop and hook capabilities nationwide.
