Precision Terminal Logistics (PTL), a subsidiary of Anacostia Rail Holdings and Brown Brothers Harriman Capital Partners, has acquired The Kearney Cos. Inc. (KCO) in New Orleans and Kearney Page Warehouse Services (KPWS) in Savannah, Georgia.
The acquisition was completed Dec. 31, 2021. Anacostia Rail and Brown Brothers will provide additional resources and strategic partnerships to the companies and their clients, representatives from the companies said in a press release.
"The acquisition expands two critical gateways at a crucial time when customer supply chains at ports are backlogged and need enhanced capacity," said PTL President Ray Nixon.
KPWS will be rebranded as The Kearney Cos.–Savannah. David Kearney will remain president of both companies and will continue to be an equity owner.

The facilities are served by the New Orleans Public Belt Railroad (NOPB) that connects directly with BNSF Railway Co., CN, CSX, Kansas City Southern, Norfolk Southern Railway and Union Pacific Railroad.
KCO’s services include commodity warehousing, barge and rail transloading, coupled with full-service ocean container drayage operations and inland freight management services.
