Dunavant Enterprises Starts Leasing Group

By Bill Dries for Memphis Daily News

Memphis-based Dunavant Enterprises has formed a leasing entity that leases all types of transportation equipment to its logistics customers.

Dunavant Logistics Leasing Group is headquartered in LaPorte, Texas, and is led by Carlos Rodriguez, who comes to the position of director of business development and equipment leasing from being maintenance and repair director of Dunavant Trans Gulf Transportation LLC for six years.

Dunavant chief operating officer Richard McDuffie said the move into leasing stemmed from the issues Dunavant’s logistics clients face with maintenance on aging chassis.

“Our customers specifically requested chassis and trailer offerings in conjunction with our warehousing, trucking, drayage and global logistics management services,” McDuffie said in a statement.
