Wilder, Ky., April 23, 2010 - RWI Transportation LLC, an asset-based logistics company that provides regional and national truckload, LTL, expedited, and warehousing services, announced today that it is opening an office in Denver. The office, which will offer both dry and refrigerated services, strengthens the company's ability to cover the Western region of the United States.

"The Denver office will allow RWI Transportation to strengthen our capabilities in the Western United States and lay the groundwork for opening a terminal there this fall," said Richard Bauer, RWI executive vice president. "Our goal is to make sure we're able to help our shipping customers strategically manage the freight flowing through their supply chains. This new operation gives us added abilities to manage their freight moving anywhere between California and the East Coast and also places us in a good position to penetrate the Pacific Northwest marketplace."

The new office will be managed by Brian Carr, director of logistics. Carr has nearly 20 years of experience in transportation and logistics in the Denver area. Most recently, he managed 3PL activity for the western region as general manager of the M2 Logistics Inc. office in Denver and branch manager at Schneider National Inc.

Carr is joined by west region sales manager Bill Weaver, an industry veteran with 24 years of transportation and logistics experience in a variety of modes. Prior to joining RWI Transportation, Weaver contributed to the growth of a number of companies, including M2 Logistics Inc., Schneider National Inc., and P&O Containers.

RWI Transportation is an affiliate of the Castellini Group of Companies which forms one of the largest distributors of fresh fruits and vegetables in the United States.

"We're excited to be able to leverage RWI's assets and bring equipment into this market," said Carr. "Having the support and resources of the Castellini Group will give us a solid foundation as we build our presence in this market. We're looking forward to introducing local customers to RWI's high level of service excellence."

RWI also has offices in Wilder, Ky., Bloomington, Calif., Tampa, Fla., and Fayetteville, Ark.
