Canada Cartage buys Cam-Scott Transport

by Today's Trucking

Canada Cartage has announced its acquisition of Whitby, Ont.-based Cam-Scott Transport, expanding its temperature-sensitive service offerings.

The deal includes 150 tractors and 250 reefer trailers. Cam-Scott specializes in food and beverage deliveries in Ontario and also owns a 24-door cross-dock facility, maintenance shop, and office in Whitby.

“Cam-Scott is very successful and growing transport company,” said Canada Cartage president and CEO Jeff Lindsay. “Their specialization in temperature-controlled fresh, frozen, and dry goods is a great fit with Canada Cartage’s customer base in the grocery and retail food and beverage sectors. Combining our two companies will help us to grow in these important market segments.”

“I know that Canada Cartage is a great fit for both our staff and our customers as we bring the companies together,” added Cam-Scott president and owner Glenn Weddel. “It will provide more opportunities for our employees, and additional services across Canada for our customers.”

Weddel will stay on for a time to ensure a smooth transition, and general manager Stephanie Chandler will remain to oversee day-to-day company operations.

Left Lane Associates represented Cam-Scott in the transaction.

  • I’m not sure about Canada cartage taking over CAM SCOTT unfortunately Canada cartage has a bad reputation for hiring a warm body just to fill seats.

  • Excellent purchase by Canada Cartage, I have witnessed them grow from when they were next door to me on the Queensway!

  • Canada Cartage is already owned by United Arab Emirates and with all the other companies being purchased and operated by CC pretty soon it’ll be a whole different story for the trucking industry. Driver shortage will be a much bigger problem for alot of drivers.

  • Merger of small companies into bigger ones kills the fair competition. Corporate acquire the small companies create monopoly then left you with no choice. This is not good for the small business owner and ends up making owner into employee. Beware of this

  • Can’t wait for this one to shake out
    TFI vs The Emirates.
    After what TFI did to we O/Os at Highland.
