    Olympus Partners just purchased Superior, with Heniff! If any of you have signed up for Superior Bulk Logistics email, you have received this email already. I don't know how to 'attach' things on this forum, if anyone knows how to do that, and got the email, please post. So, what will Superior be, Heniff? Still SPCR? Guess we'll know by 2nd week of Jan. However, from the email, it says we will run separately for the 'immediate future'. Guessing by the end of next year things will change? They said the only change will be in dispatch, tank washing, and a few other minimal things. But, managers, terminals will all remain the same(both companies).

    It's going to be interesting to see what happens at Kingsport. Heniff and Superior each have a terminal there, right next to each other

    Superior isn't struggling at all. The original owner, who started the company as a hobby, died a few years ago. His children want to cash out, and this is how they chose to do that.

    true, however, with a 'combined fleet' of 2100 tractors, seem they are going to give QC (biggest bulk carrier) a 'run for their money'. Not to mention, attitudes may change. Mega Fleet comes to mind, here. Hopefully not, but we'll see. This will go from your name to just a number!

    Any town with both terminals will see some management changes.

    I remember a dispatcher and office girl who moved from Superior to Hennif in 2008 or so. Took some business with them I was told. Likely some bad blood there.

    if you've seen the Heniff terminal in Greensboro(Express Tankwash), which I'm sure you have loads of times, I'm pretty sure they will use High Point and kick that rathole to the curb! lol

    yeah, they do. It used to be a Miller terminal, since Heniff bought them a year or 2 back, guess they changed it to a Heniff terminal.
