Service Advantages

Direct Service

Most shipments are picked up at point of shipment, line-hauled and delivered by the same truck. Handling and transferring of shipments is kept to a minimum. This is an important advantage to shippers with freight that is subject to damage due to handling.

Service Coverage

We are licensed for all Canadian provinces and the continental United States. Utilizing our own fleet and a network of associated carriers we can provide competitive rates and service anywhere in Canada and the United States. If we are not positioned to give you the best service we will tell you that as well.

Transit Times

Generally count on 500 miles per day plus loading and unloading time. This is comparable to or better than general over the road service.

24/7 Dispatch and Customer Service

Live personnel to answer your call during normal business hours, after-hours office phones are forwarded to an on-call person.

On-line Dispatch and Invoicing

On-line customer access to information and documentation.

Satellite Tracking and Communications

All trucks are satellite and cell-phone equipped so we always know your shipment status.

Local Alberta Service

We have local drivers and equipment in Calgary and Edmonton to provide cost effective pickup and delivery service.
