Mike Burton Named President of MEDLOG USA

Posted May 16, 2024

In 2003, Mike Burton was part of a team that acquired C&K Trucking and Mike became the company’s President. Over the years, C&K Trucking grew in size and completed several acquisitions to better serve their customers. The acquisitions included AV Logistics, Skyline Express, and recently acquired Pacific Green Trucking. Each has built an independent reputation for providing safe, timely, and efficient intermodal transportation and/or providing expert management and programs to help customers control costs.

Now, there is a new chapter with the acquisition of our companies by MEDLOG USA, an MSC Company. With this change, the MSC board of directors appointed Mike Burton as President of MEDLOG USA. We sat down with Mike to better understand this change, MEDLOG, and what it will mean for customers and employees.

Congratulations, Mike! How do you feel about your new appointment?

I’m proud to be able to help shepherd into this exciting new future as MEDLOG USA. I’m also grateful that MSC appointed someone with a personal history and deep knowledge of all our companies to lead the transition. I am excited to apply my years of experience to help the our team ensure a seamless experience for our valued customers.

Who is MEDLOG?

MEDLOG is the independent transport and logistics provider of MSC, with more than 80 locations worldwide. The company specializes in multimodal transportation, including road, rail, barge, and ocean services, and is one of the world’s most geographically comprehensive supply chain providers. MEDLOG USA is now the parent company’s inland transportation arm in North America and will oversee all our companies.

How will being part of MEDLOG USA  impact the customers of the C&K Holdings companies? 

MEDLOG and their parent company, MSC, bring vast resources to our team!  MEDLOG offers an ever-expanding network of container storage facilities to enhance our ability to provide greater efficiencies to our customers. In return, we offer them a well-established North American network for seamless port drayage, innovative technology, and a loyal customer base. The important thing to know is that although our name will change, we remain dedicated to providing customers with the resources and expertise they need to be successful. 

When will this change take place?

The MEDLOG USA name will replace the current names of each our respective companies in the near future. While our name may change, our longstanding mission to our customers will remain unchanged. There is a five-year plan in place right now, with a full rollout of the MEDLOG brand. We anticipate completing the brand rollout in Q1 of 2025.
