MANSFIELD, Texas

The brokerage divisions of TA Services, P&S Transportation and Blair Logistics have united as one national entity, creating one of the largest flatbed brokerages in North America. The combined TA Services includes over 100 employees across 25 offices and facilities with over 10,000 carrier partners. The brokerage began operating under the TA Services brand name effective April 1, 2015.

The change is seamless to TA Services customers, carriers and employees since all of the businesses previously utilized the same technology platform, operating procedures, and accounting practices. The new organization is led by TA Services’ current president, Scott Schell.

TA Services recently unveiled a new company logo and tagline – The Extra Mile, Every Mile – in addition to a new website. “Everyone at TA Services is truly dedicated to going the extra mile in everything we do,” said Mr. Schell.

TA Services is part of parent company PS Logistics, based in Birmingham, AL. The brokerage is part of PS Logistics’ growth plan to further lead the flatbed transportation industry in all aspects of trucking and logistics services. “TA Services fully complements our asset-based and non-asset services, providing flatbed shippers with the broadest range of best-in-breed solutions for all of their transportation management needs,” said Robert Pike, CEO of PS Logistics.
