Werner Enterprises Acquires Elite Regional Truckload Carriers ECM Transport Group

ECM Transport

We are excited to announce that Werner has closed on the acquisition of ECM Transport Group (“ECM”). ECM includes two elite regional truckload carriers – ECM Transport of Cheswick, PA with approximately 450 trucks, and Motor Carrier Service of Northwood, OH (MCS) with approximately 50 trucks. Collectively, these carriers operate with a strategic network of 8 terminals and 18 drop yard facilities in the Mid-Atlantic, Ohio, and Northeast markets.

ECM was founded by President Ed Meier in 1988. Ed and his talented leadership team, highly-skilled and tenured drivers and non-driver associates will continue to lead and operate ECM and MCS as standalone business units within Werner. Mr. Meier will also retain a 20% equity stake in ECM Transport group. ECM and MCS have the highest standards of professional drivers, safety, and superior customer service.

We welcome ECM and MCS and their associates to our Werner family and we look forward to a bright future together. To the ECM, MCS, and Werner teams, THANK YOU for being part of our “best in class” truckload transportation and logistics company.
