About Saia LTL Freight
Established in 1924 in Houma, LA, Saia is a less-than-truckload (LTL) trucking company. The company was founded by a produce dealer named Louis Saia Sr. upon finding more scope in the delivery industry than the sales one. Saia Sr. started the organization with a single-family car whose rear seats were removed to make more space for loading couriers. He worked hard for the next 45 years, making the company a huge hit in Louisiana and Texas. By 1986, the company had become the largest regional LTL carrier, with 25+ different terminals across 5 Southeastern states, over a thousand employees, and nearly $50 million in earnings.
In a major turn of events in 1987, Preston Trucking acquired Saia, and six years later, when Yellow Corporation purchased Preston, Saia automatically came under its authority. In 1995, Saia merged with Smalley Transportation and gained access to all 11 Southern states. After a few more acquisitions and mergers in 2006, Saia finally began trading on the NASDAQ.
A year later, Saia acquired The Connection Company and Madison Freight Systems, Inc. and gained over a billion dollars in gross revenue, making it the first in its entire working history. To expand its services and reach, five years later, the company purchased The Robart Companies and ventured into the truckload service and third-party logistics industry. In 2015, Saia made another acquisition in the same industry and took over Dallas-based LinkEx Inc.
Currently, Saia serves 190 terminals with a team of approximately 12000 employees and provides all kinds of transportation and logistics services to its customers.
