Highways & Skyways of NC Acquired By Givens Transportation

We are pleased to share the sale of our client, Highways & Skyways of NC, Inc., to Givens Transportation, Inc. The acquisition closed August 1, 2023.

Highways & Skyways of NC (H&S) located in Greensboro, North Carolina is a full-service logistics management company. The company’s business was created to help a business get dependable, excellent shipping from the loading dock to the customer site.

Their Greensboro terminal is strategically located along the I-85/I-40 corridor allowing them to hold a tremendous geographic advantage for companies looking to quickly distribute their domestic and imported goods. Nearly 99% of the nation can be serviced within two days from H&S locations by ground.

Founded in 1957 and located in Chesapeake, Virginia, Givens Transportation, Inc. (Givens) is a family-owned and operated logistics provider offering customers a single-source solution for warehousing and distribution, transportation, packing and crating, and air freight services.
