Description and history
Asche Transportation Services, Inc., through its subsidiaries, is a diversified transportation services company. The Company operates primarily through Asche Transfer, Inc., Specialty Transportation Services, Inc. (STS), AG Carriers, Inc., and Asche Foliage.

Asche Transfer, Inc. is primarily a temperature controlled transportation company that operates over 325 late model Peterbilts tractors. The subsidiary operates five customer service centers and two equipment service centers located in Shannon and Rockford, Illinois; Apopka, Florida; Atlanta, Georgia; and Springdale, Arizona. Asche Transfer provides transportation services in several specialized markets such as, the pharmaceutical, foliage, and food ingredient industries. Asche Transfer focuses on technology, professional drivers, and niche marketing. Asche Transfer operates primarily from the Midwest to the Southeast and Southwest. Asche Transfer’s strong growth can be credited to strong business alliances.

STS has in place a nationwide network of terminals, connected by computerized communications links and served by a fleet of new, well maintained trailers designed to handle the volume of scrap and waste the industry demands. STS hauls more than 440,000 loads per year for public and private waste companies, as well as large local governments.

AG Carriers markets just-in-time, temperature-controlled services in the full-truckload carrier market, primarily to high-volume customers with predictable movements in traffic lanes. The just-in-time concept stresses the importance of precise delivery times and the need for dependability in order to control inventory levels and limit handling. Full truckload operations typically involve a single shipment occupying the entire carrying capacity of a semi-trailer, moving directly from origin to destination.

The Asche Foliage Division operates from Asche Transfer’s Apopka, Florida facility. This eight-door, 30, 000 square foot facility acts as the central releasing terminal for both Asche Transfer and Asche Foliage’s Florida operations. The Asche Foliage Division consolidates less-than-truckload orders at its Apopka facility then ships the foliage in truckload volumes throughout the continental United States.
