HeavyTorque Issue 7: Sterett Heavy Hauling

A HEAVYWEIGHT IN HEAVY HAULAGE

US FIRM STERETT HEAVY HAULING HAS GROWN DRAMATICALLY SINCE IT WAS FOUNDED 65 YEARS AGO, AS OWNER AND CEO TRES STERETT EXPLAINS TO MARGO COLE.

The announcement last month that Kentucky-based Sterett Heavy Hauling had acquired Florida firm Arlington Heavy Hauling signifies the scale of Sterett’s ambitions within the US heavy haulage market.

Arlington is one of the largest specialised haulers in the Southeast of America, with expertise in moving large, oversized machinery and construction equipment throughout the US but with a particularly strong emphasis on Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina. Sterett also works anywhere in the US, Canada and even South America, but the bulk of its work tends to be within an 800-950km radius of its six bases in the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana and Missouri.

The acquisition significantly increases Sterett’s geographical reach but a key factor in the decision to buy Arlington was the Florida firm’s presence at the port of Jacksonville. “This acquisition will allow Sterett companies to establish a presence in a port city which presents significant new opportunities,” explains Sterett CFO, Mike Carroll. “Arlington is approximately two miles from the Port of Jacksonville and currently employs port-approved drivers. A port presence will present Sterett with opportunities to transport heavy and large loads to their final destination using its fleet of hydraulic platform and other trailers.”

It will also help Sterett achieve its ambition of offering turnkey solutions for moving and lifting heavy loads.
