CAMROSE, Alta. — Manitoulin Transport has announced the purchase of Hi-Way 13’s LTL division.
Hi-Way 13 is based in Camrose, Alta. and marks Manitoulin’s second acquisition of an Alberta-based LTL trucking company in the last four months.

Hi-Way 13 freight will be moved under the Manitoulin Transport banner beginning today.
“There are three key reasons for this purchase,” said Don Goodwill, president, Manitoulin Transport. “First, Hi-Way 13 is a major player in a geographic pocket of Alberta that we want to have a stronger presence in. Second, their reputation for quality, customer service, and their stellar safety record are all characteristics Manitoulin holds dear. Third, like Manitoulin, Hi-Way 13 has built strong relationships with customers over several decades, which we greatly value and intend to build upon.”
“In recent years Manitoulin has made numerous strategic acquisitions to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers,” added Gord Smith, chief executive officer, Manitoulin Group of Companies. “Customers acquired in the past have been very pleased with the fact that they moved to a company that can provide comprehensive support for their supply chain through technology, a diverse range of equipment, the capacity to help them grow and expand into new areas, and the ability to manage their shipments to and from any place in the world. We believe Hi-Way 13 customers will feel the same way and will welcome the breadth of service Manitoulin can provide them.”
