Selland Auto Transport (“SAT” or the “Company”) is a medium-sized auto carrier with a leading market position in the Western United States. Headquartered in Seattle, WA, the Company operates out of 11 locations strategically located along major trucking lanes, railroad depots, customer plants, and dealerships. SAT serves a diverse customer base which includes over 15 leading foreign and domestic automobile manufacturers, with relationships averaging over 20 years in length.
