BURFORD, Ont. – TFI International has acquired Keith Hall & Sons Transport, a family-run hauler of liquid and dry foods and general freight.

TFI’s latest addition generates about $30 million in annual revenue, and has more than 100 full-time company drivers as well as about 20 part-time company drivers and owner-operators. It runs nearly 120 company tractors and more than 200 trailers, including tanks, vans and reefers.

The company also runs a food-grade tank washing facility at its Burford, Ont., facility.

“Keith Hall & Sons fits exceptionally well with our food grade transportation business and we welcome the entire KHS team to TFI International,” said Alain Bédard, chairman, president and chief executive officer of TFI International. “KHS hauls similar products to our various tank companies and we expect to create significant synergies. As our third acquisition within specialized truckload this year, KHS is another strategic addition to the growing TFI family of operating companies and we are pleased that KHS and its team continue their rapid growth as part of our organization.”

  • Hello Brian, Recently I learned that your amazing business has been sold which made me sad after watching the unbelievable expansion over the decades. I remember your Dad coming to pick up our Jersey milk after he purchased the blue truck from Don Gurney. Awhile later you started coming and I’m sure I told you that you were too young and should stay in school like any school teacher would think. I recall Leif offering to make a corsage from dandelions for your girl friend’s prom. Our children were young then and your Dad was amazed at how Alison would sleep in the playpen while he pumped milk. He remarked that he wished Kevin would sleep like that.
    Your Dad , you and the rest of the family are to be commended for the great growth in the company. I will miss seeing your trucks on the highways even though I don’t go too far anymore.
    After living 50 years at the farm Leif’s knees were bothering him so we moved to Burgessville in 2011 and our grandson moved into the house after graduating from Ridgetown. I believe your Dad brought you up to see the milking parlour that Greg and Michele built. This year they tore down the original barn and built a huge heifer barn in its place. I wish I knew how many cement trucks have been to the farm since 1962. They are still using the two trucks that they acquired from you.
    You probably heard that Leif passed away Feb. 2017; he had a bad fall and had a brain hemorrhage. I was sorry to hear about your wife too. Hope you are in good health and I wish you all the best in the future.

    Regards Marilyn
