Alterna Equity Partners, a private equity firm headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, has bought Bulk Express Transport, a transportation and logistics services company providing long-haul transportation, collection and loading of waste and other materials.

Bulk’s main service offerings include long-haul transportation services for municipal solid waste, recyclables, aggregates, construction and demolition debris, contaminated soils, ash, sludge and other materials, as well as waste transfer station management, loading and unloading and landfill services. The company serves waste services companies, environmental services companies, recyclers, manufacturing companies and municipalities. Several members of Bulk’s management team will continue to operate the business.

“Our new partnership with AEP and [Steve] Worster will allow us to complete critical business improvement initiatives, including implementing transportation management systems and continuing to expand our fleet and operational footprint,” says Ramon Mijares, Bulk’s founder. “These initiatives will allow the company to accelerate growth while enhancing service delivery to our customers.”
