HMB would like to congratulate Hoosier Logistics (“Hoosier”), an Indianapolis-based logistics and supply chain provider, on its successful sale to Direct Connect Logistix (“DCL”), a third-party transportation and logistics service provider.
Founded in 2015 by Rob Likens and Nick Likens, Hoosier is a freight brokerage company with specialization in temperature-controlled transportation services for the food and beverage market. By joining together, Hoosier and DCL will significantly increase their ability to serve customers across North America.
DCL is a leading provider of transportation solutions for customers of all sizes. Since its founding in 2009, DCL has provided specialized freight brokerage services with a strategic focus on temperature-controlled, time and condition critical market segments, including food, grocery, beverage and related industries.
"As we talked extensively with CEO Rich Piontek at DCL about this powerful business combination, we became convinced that DCL shares our corporate values and has a plan that will benefit our employees and our customers as we grow together," Rob and Nick Likens said. "We have worked hard over the past seven years to build Hoosier into what it is today and believe that joining with DCL will help all of us achieve our collective goals."
