COMPETITION WATCH: Contrans acquires Peter Hodge Transport

WOODSTOCK, Ont. -- Contrans has announced it has acquired bulk trucking firm Peter Hodge Transport.


WOODSTOCK, Ont. — Contrans has announced it has acquired bulk trucking firm Peter Hodge Transport.

The deal is expected to generate annual revenues of about $20 million. Peter Hodge runs 92 highway tractors and 140 trailers and provides bulk hauling using open-top dump trailers and liquid tankers.

“The managers, staff and drivers at Peter Hodge Transport have spent over 40 years building a great company,” said Contrans’ chairman and CEO Stan Dunford. “This is a unique opportunity for us to strengthen our dump and tank hauling presence in Ontario by adding such a well-respected, service-oriented business to our group. For many years, we have operated a similar business in the Great Lakes region, but the shipping lanes and trailer types have differed from those typically handled by Peter Hodge Transport. This is a complementary addition to our service offerings.”

    Peter Hodges Transport always looked like a well oiled machine.If i stayed in southern Ontario and cared to operate still in the United States I might have eventually drifted their way. Contrans I however has left a bad taste in the mouths of excellent ethical folks that I know.Time will tell.
