Werner Enterprises, Inc. acquired NEHDS for $64 million. NEHDS delivers big and bulky products through a network of 19 cross dock, warehouse and customer facilities.
“The addition of the NEHDS operations, management team, talented staff and strong customer relationships to the Werner family represents a significant step forward in our final-mile delivery program. The combination of award-winning service that NEHDS provides to its clients, along with the comprehensive portfolio of trucking capability, final-mile logistics services and technology will bring the Werner and NEHDS customer base many advantages,” says Derek Leathers, chairman, president and CEO.
- The NEHDS leadership team, drivers, non-driver associates and independent contractors will remain with the business, which will be rebranded into Werner Final Mile.
“With a deep heritage of compassion for all associates, contractors and customers, we are grateful to unite with a likeminded company in Werner that has similar core values to NEHDS. Werner’s technology, logistical expertise and geographic footprint is extremely attractive in partnering together. I am personally grateful for the opportunity to join the Werner team along with our entire management team, associates and contractors,” says Gerry Burdo, founder and president of NEHDS.
