Trucking firm, James R. Brooks Co., sold to Roadrunner

When one of the major shareholders of the James R. Brooks Co. was interested in a lifestyle change, Capital Alliance arranged for the company to be acquired by a larger transportation firm. The James R. Brooks Co. was a provider of intermodal transportation and related services to the ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach and Oakland. The firm transported primarily fresh produce including citrus, vegetables, fruit and nuts. The selling shareholder received cash for his stock in the firm. The acquiring company, Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc., is a transportation and logistics services provider offering a full suite of solutions, including customized and expedited transportation management solutions, intermodal solutions, and domestic and international air freight services.
