INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Indianapolis-based FitzMark Inc. has acquired Logistics Made Simple, a flatbed-focused logistics firm headquartered in Tennessee. The transportation company says this acquisition adds 80 employees and two offices to its operations.

FitzMark says both Logistics Made Simple locations will operate under the FitzMark name.

“Combining forces with Logistics Made Simple adds a significant vertical to our platform of services,” said Scott Fitzgerald, owner and president of FitzMark. “Their knowledge and experience in flatbed transportation coupled with our expertise in the dry van and reefer division set FitzMark up to outpace our competitors by adding significant depth to our arsenal of transportation solutions.”

This is FitzMark’s second acquisition in two years and the company hopes it will help grow its carrier network and service offering within the transportation and logistics industry.

FitzMark is a transportation firm that provides service in logistics for more than a decade. Over that period, FitzMark says it drove strong organic growth and completed two strategic acquisitions: Reliable Source Logistics in early 2019 and Logistics Made Simple in 2020, expanding its workforce and service capabilities.

“Our customers will benefit from the resources that will be added to an already incredible customer service experience. The knowledge we will be able to share will be a key differentiator for FitzMark,” said JD Davis, president of Logistics Made Simple.

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
