Family road trip marks Mackie’s 90th year

WHITBY, Ont. -- Ross Mackie has 84 years of memories with Mackie Transportation, and in June he hit the road to make a few more. Founded in 1928 the company was just six years old when Ross was born. Now in its 90th year the fleet has been run by five generations of the Mackie family. To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the company four generations of Mackie’s piled into a Peterbilt 578 and drove from Whitby to Seattle with a full load, and stops in Manitoba and Vancouver along the way.
