“Harris has an established name in the Canadian trucking industry with a solid reputation for customer service as well as being a formidable competitor,” said Murray Mullen, chairman and CEO of Mullen Group.

“Today I am pleased to announce that we have acquired another good Canadian company. Over the next few months, we will work with the customers and employees to transition the business of Harris into the Gardewine Group of Companies, the best way to realize synergies.”

  • We need to make all trucking companies that spent over 2 million in new equipment in 2020 or 2021 or in the purchase of other trucking companies to pay back any wage subsidy.. any trucking company with over 10,000 power units or 15,000 employees should not be allowed to buy out another trucking company unless they pay 10 percent of the purchase price into a special fund for parking and housing and treatment of sick or injured truck drivers.
