J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. will buy a Houston-based logistics company for $136 million, according to a press release.

The company, Special Logistics Dedicated, has assets that J.B. Hunt says will allow it to enhance its final-mile delivery capabilities. Final-mile delivery has come under the microscope as consumers today expect their goods to be at their doors in a shorter time span, within a day or two.
