Mark-It Express Logistics LLC announced today that it has acquired the operating assets of Sava Transportation Inc. ("Sava") based in Maywood, IL. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The Sava acquisition is the second transaction announced by Mark-It in 2020 having previously acquired Spirit Trucking in January and it marks another notable step in its expansion.
Sava, led by its President, Robert Kondic, has built strong customer loyalty and a well-regarded reputation over its 22 years of operations. Sava’s expertise within the intermodal industry lies primarily in the movement of international containers, and its acquisition will broaden Mark-It’s existing customer base.
The acquisition will add 20 trucks to Mark-It’s growing fleet. With a combined total of nearly 200 trucks, Mark-It will be able to continue to provide additional capacity and enhanced solutions to drive value for customers, drivers and supply chain partners.
Tony Apa, President and Founder of Mark-It, emphasized that “the acquisition allows us to offer more flexible and robust solutions to our customers. It also brings us continued diversification of our customer base, increased market share, and the potential for more growth.” Sava’s employees will transition to Mark-It’s terminals in Lemont and Chicago, Illinois.
Robert Kondic commented “much has changed in the course of twenty two and a half years in business and I felt it was the correct time to combine our years of experience and align ourselves with a progressive and well-capitalized company with great prospects for future growth. Tony and I share the common business principle that customer service is the foremost priority above all, and we will continue the practices that have allowed us to be successful. With aligned corporate ideology, it is with excitement and a bright outlook for the future that I look forward to working alongside Tony and the team at Mark-It Express Logistics.”
Apa said, “Even in these uncertain times, we are focused on our plans and goals previously set out and will continue to grow both organically and through future acquisitions.”
