Bulkmatic, a large dry bulk transporter in North America, and Bulk FR8 LLC, a liquid bulk logistics and freight management company, have announced that they are starting a joint venture to provide truckload capacity solutions for dry bulk shippers.
The new company, Dry Bulk FR8, brings together industry expertise, technology, and safety-focused operations in the area of pneumatic tank truck management and brokerage.

President of Bulkmatic, Chris Kavas, said: “We have provided dry bulk trucking and rail transload services for more than 50 years. We are happy to announce that we can now offer brokerage services by working with one of the best liquid bulk brokerages in the business and become a one-stop transportation solution for our customers.”
