Trappers Transport acquires Plett Trucking

by Today's Trucking

Trappers Transport has expanded its cold chain logistics business with the acquisition of refrigerated transporter Plett Trucking.

Plett Trucking was founded in 1968 as Landmark Transfer, growing into a national transportation provider. The two Manitoba-based companies have worked together since the 1990s.

Plett adds 40 power units and 60 refrigerated trailers to the Trappers fleet.

“Their strong track record of reliable refrigerated service and their extensive knowledge of the clients they serve, perfectly complement our existing operations and align with our long-term goals,” said Dan Omeniuk, CEO of Trappers Transport.

“By integrating both operations, we will be able to provide an expanded range of services and provide even greater value to our customers. Together, we will continue to provide an exceptional customer experience, deliver real-time load transparency, and adhere to the highest food safety and security standards.”

  • It was a well kept secret from the drivers who work at Plett Trucking many were very disappointed and have already left Plett trucking to drive for different companies.

    Had there been more transparency maybe these 2 companies might have been able to retain these experienced drivers. Business is Business and sadly it effects more then the bottom line it effects the drivers who create this bottom line for Trucking companies.

    I am currently still working for Plett trucking it will be a wait and see what happens situation for me.
