Pass the maple syrup and cue the theme song for Tim Hortons. AFS has a new location in Canada – and Canada has a new market leader in freight audit and payment.
We’re proud to announce that earlier this month, we acquired DTA Services, Ltd., a leading Canadian freight bill audit, cost allocation and analytics firm.
The acquisition combines the strong platform and team at DTA with the resources and experience of AFS to fuel both companies’ growth in Canada.
“DTA is a strong cultural fit for AFS, with an intense passion for helping clients exhibited by a 102-year history of success and a loyal customer base,” said AFS CEO Tom Nightingale. “With our combined presence and product offering, we have an incomparable opportunity to create value for our customers on both sides of the border.”
DTA will continue serving clients under its established brand as an AFS operating company and will maintain its current team, service offering and location. However, it will do so as a bigger, better, and stronger provider in the Canadian market thanks to the addition of AFS services such less-than-truckload (LTL), parcel audit, parcel cost management, and transportation management. DTA’s core freight audit and payment offering also will be enhanced by visibility into the $10 billion in annual freight spend already managed by AFS.
DTA’s current office in Toronto will become AFS’s newest location, complementing AFS’s seven other offices, which are located throughout the United States.
Great news, eh?
