BELLEVILLE, Ont. – International Truckload Services (ITS) has announced its acquisition of Mortrans Transport.
The deal includes 45 trucks and 65 employees.

It’s a great opportunity and the economy is strong and it’s a really good fit,” said ITS president and chief operating officer Rob Haggarty.
“It’s a local family business joining another local family business. And, it’s a great opportunity to grow the trucking market in the Bay of Quinte area and beyond.”
