Canada’s Top 100 truck fleets topped by TFI International

by Today's Trucking

TORONTO, Ont. — Today’s Trucking magazine has updated its annual ranking of Canada’s top 100 truck fleets by size, and there’s a familiar name at the top of the list.

TFI International, based in Montreal, remains the largest trucking operation in the country.

CN, which acquired TransX in March 2019, holds the second position. Mullen Group, Day&Ross, and Trimac round out the Top 5.

Data was collected through an extensive telephone survey throughout January and February this year, and incorporates additional insights into offered services.

The rankings themselves are based on total equipment counts, and are not affected by layoffs and furloughs initiated during the Covid-19 economic downturn that began after the data was collected.
