Boyd Bros. Transportation has acquired Mid Seven Transportation of Des Moines, IA. Mid Seven transports steel, machinery and agricultural equipment using flatbed and drop deck trailers. It uses owner-operators and operates primarily in the Midwest with extended lanes into the South, Northeast and Southwest.

“We are proud to add Mid Seven Transportation to the Boyd family of companies,” said Richard Bailey, president of Boyd Bros. “We plan to operate Mid Seven autonomously as a separate subsidiary. Mid Seven has some of the best owner operators and employees in the industry and we are especially proud of their safety and service culture.”

Boyd Bros. was recently named one of the Truckload Carriers Assn.’s 2012 Best Fleets to Drive For.

“It is exciting for me to see Mid Seven Transportation Company become a member of the Boyd Bros. family of carriers,” said Jeff Simpson of Mid Seven. “Both companies have long histories of operating with integrity, commitment to customer service and placing a high value on their employees and independent contractors.”
