Welcoming D&D Sexton to the CFI family

TFI International, Inc. announced this week the acquisition of Carthage, MO-based D&D Sexton. D&D has been a family-owned business for more than 40 years, specializing in refrigerated transportation and serving a long-standing customer base with both long-haul over-the-road services as well as local and shuttle operations. 

With this news, we welcome more than 150 D&D Sexton company drivers and owner-operators along with approximately 40 non-driving associates to our CFI family. As we continue to invest in building our temperature-controlled capabilities, the addition of D&D offers new possibilities for growth with significant experience and more than 120 tractors and 400 refrigerated and dry van trailers. And as another Missouri-based truckload carrier with a family-first culture, we are certain that our newest additions will find a great fit in our organization, culture, and business model.

This news follows the recent reorganization of CFI into one company with five distinct services—including our new temp-control service—and represents an expansion of our temperature-controlled fleet by 50%.
