A&R Logistics acquires Luckey Trucking.

A&R Logistics, a North American provider of supply chain services for the chemical industry, acquires Luckey Trucking, a provider of dry bulk, liquid bulk, dry van transportation, warehousing and logistics services to the chemical industry. The acquisition of Luckey expands A&R’s fleet of specialized tractors and trailers.

Headquartered in Streator, Illinois, Luckey reportedly operates a trucking terminal, tank wash and over 250 railcar locations on the BNSF and Union Pacific Railways. The company also operates a warehouse providing logistics services for customers. Luckey also operates through a network of six affiliate terminals located in Iowa, Ohio, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. Throughout this network near key routes and ports in the North American chemical supply chain, Luckey provides over-the-road dry and liquid bulk transportation services to North American chemical producers and diversified industrial companies. The company also offers dry van trucking, rail transloading and warehousing and packaging services. Key members of the Luckey family and leadership team will remain with the company and join the A&R team.

This represents the fifth add-on acquisition for A&R under Wind Point Partners ownership, following the additions of Blue Water Plastic Transport in June 2019, Plantgistix in November 2019, First Choice Logistics in February 2020 and L.T. Harnett in August 2020. A&R's reportedly will continue to focus on acquiring companies that provide dry and liquid bulk transportation, warehousing and logistics services to producers and distributors of chemicals and plastics.
