Awards Show What Becomes Possible With Persistence


One pillar of excellent performance, as any successful business owner will tell you, is persistence. Many of the 2018 LCT Operator of the Year Award winners who accepted their awards on stage March 13 at the annual LCT Awards Celebration draw on this quality.


Take the winners in the fleet categories as examples; they have applied over and over again. Brett Barenholtz and Kevin Cronin of Boston Car Service/Above All Transportation achieved a rare tie with Mosaic Global Transportation in San Jose, CA. in the 51+ vehicle category.

Inside the Merger of Boston Car and Above All Transportation

August 2015 by Susan Rose

THE WINTER OF 2015 WAS ONE FOR THE BOOKS. Every few days within a six-week period, a fresh storm would dump new snow on major Northeastern cities like Boston, crippling transportation and creating a major travel headache. Beantown is no stranger to snow or cold, but this was exceptional. By mid-March, more than 110 inches had fallen (the average is 44 inches), easily shattering the record. There were numerous times where Boston Logan Airport simply closed while roads, despite best efforts, were reduced from three lanes to one. The white stuff fell so fast and furiously on the thousands of miles of highways and city streets—with no melting between storms—that had to be trucked to “snow farms” where massive mountains of snow and ice mixed with road debris were managed. The last of it, incredibly, melted in July.


While the extraordinary New England weather was making headlines, Brett Barenholtz of Boston Car and Kevin Cronin of Above All Transportation were quietly discussing their own breaking news: a merger. Boston has a lot of large chauffeured transportation operations, most of which maintain a healthy camaraderie between companies, so it wasn’t a surprise to learn that they shared a similar company culture that might just blend well.
