AFS, the leader in transportation cost management solutions and a member of the 2013 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private businesses in the US, announces the purchase of Nashville, TN-based TracBack Solutions Inc. The acquisition was finalized on September 30, 2013.
“Over the past 12 months, our company has achieved some great goals including our inclusion as one of the fastest growing companies in America. We look forward to presenting our newest customers with more ways to reduce their shipping spend,” said Brian J. Barker, Founder and CEO of AFS. “With this acquisition, we add exceptional talent and nearly $100M of shipping volume into our portfolio.”
The TracBack Solutions name will become AFS as we open our newest sales office in the Nashville market. Customers will be introduced to the value of the AFS audit and analytics platform, with the next step being a review of additional mode optimization potential.
“After talking with Brian and his team for the past year, I could not be more satisfied with our decision,” said Chris Cochran, principal at TracBack Solutions. “Our valued customers will love this decision too when they see how AFS can help with LTL and other modes.”
February 2014 will mark the 32-year anniversary for AFS, a shipping cost management partner who increases client profitability and efficiencies through specialized consulting and analytics services. Based in Shreveport, LA, AFS has over 1,300 clients in North America and 19 operations and sales offices throughout the US. See more at www.afs.net.
