Quality Carriers Expands in the Chicago Market

TAMPA, Fla., May 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quality Carriers, Inc. ("Quality
Carriers"), the leading North American bulk chemical carrier, has expanded its
presence in the Chicago market.

"Recently, we announced expansion in Denver, West Texas, Houston, Indianapolis
and Pennsylvania," stated Randy Strutz, President, Quality Carriers. "As we
review the market and meet with our customers, we have found the need for
expanded capacity in the core chemical market of greater Chicago. As a result,
one of our existing independent affiliates agreed to expand their Midwest
presence by opening in Channahon, IL, a suburb of Chicago."

"As an independent affiliate of Quality Carriers, we already have well
established terminals in Cincinnati, Lima, Barberton, and Southpoint, OH;
Institute, WV; and Morton, IL. The Chicago market opportunity is an attractive
one as it helps us round out our Midwest presence. This gives us another
market for driver recruiting and enhances our ability for lane efficiency,"
commented Jody Mangeot, President, Linmoore Investments.

"This has been an exciting start to the year. We still have many other markets
under review and plan to continue our network expansion," continued Randy
