Nation’s leading trucking, logistics and warehousing acquisition consultants continue momentum with nine new closed acquisition assignments.

/EINPresswire.com/ Phoenix, AZ, June 28, 2012— Having previously set new benchmarks for acquisition volume in 2012, Ahern and Associates, Ltd., the transportation industry’s top acquisition and operations efficiency consulting firm, enters into the second half of the year by further adding to their pace with nine completed assignments.

A “market maker” of sorts, CEO Andy Ahern leads the company charge by tapping into his broad base of contacts and colleagues within the transportation industry, deriving exclusive information for his clients which often results in a perfect acquisition match and a closed deal. While not business brokers, Ahern and his team are transportation analysts and consultants who have the unique ability to walk sellers through the acquisition process from start to finish—often times a very emotional experience.

Additionally, Ahern is also called upon to improve the overall operating efficiencies of a trucking, logistics or warehousing company. Many times he transforms businesses from the grips of potential bankruptcy to a profitable, thriving company. Not going unnoticed for their outstanding work, Ahern and his team have received the highest of praise from their most recent closed assignments:

Recently, Ahern sold Purple Plum Logistics to Echo Global Logistics. Sam Freni, the President of Purple Plum Logistics stated,”Selling a company that has been built over time is, both, extremely personal and stressful; however your patience and commitment help me to keep things in prospective and on track.” Additionally, he expressed appreciation by saying, “I would like to thank you for the hard work and dedication throughout Purple Plums’ acquisition.”

Senior Management at Milan Express described the process, “Our first face-to-face meeting was just a few months ago when we requested you assist us in selling the LTL business of Milan. In just a short amount of time we had numerous companies expressing interest. You confirmed our thoughts as to your knowledge of the transportation industry and we found you to be very direct and very sincere in dealing with us – you also kept us focused”

The management at D&E Transport showed appreciation by stating, “Thank you so much for assisting us with the most important decision of our lives. My wife and I feel extremely fortunate to be associated with you and your firm.”

The Christianson Transportation management team declared, “Andy Ahern and Ahern & Associates have always delivered exactly what they have promised.”

Management at Century Carriers explained, “We finally decided, Okay, we will give Ahern a try, and wow, what a difference. He had to listen and do exactly what he said, and some of the things we already knew, but it took Andy explaining it to us, coming in with a staff working one on one with us. He has great connections and will turn your business completely around if you only take that one chance and listen.”

Southwest Freight Lines management stated, “I really appreciate your knowledge of the industry. You have provided valuable insight during these hard times. It is always good to have someone from the outside give us an honest overview.”

Reynolds Logistics’ team stated, “Your consultant, Jim Moore, was able to pick apart my entire operation to find areas where we could significantly increase our bottom line. At the end of the week I was very pleased that we had used your firm to help us increase our profitability”

Management at Plains Transportation exclaimed, “We are a better company because of you and your staff.”

United World Wide’s management proclaimed, “Your team operates with a high degree of professionalism and we have found your assistance both refreshing and informative.”

In a recent letter from Norco Corporation, their management team stated, “The report you delivered was insightful and well presented. More importantly, it displayed knowledge of the value of trucking operations that is unparalleled in the industry. In my opinion, there is no one that has your knowledge and hands on experience when it comes to placing a value on transportation entities… you know your stuff”
