COMPETITION WATCH: Contrans bulks up flatbed operations with Truboy purchase

WOODSTOCK, Ont. — Contrans Group has acquired certain assets and business of Truboy Freight International, an Ontario-based flatbed transportation business.


Contrans plans to blend Truboy into an existing operation – Laidlaw Carriers Flatbed LP – that currently operates from offices in Hagersville Ont.


“Adding Truboy to our existing flatbed operations in Ontario offers the existing Truboy customers a great platform for growth and expanded service capacity; and for the existing Laidlaw operation, this acquisition will extend our reach to a new customer base. This should prove valuable to all parties,” said Stan Dunford, CEO of Contrans.
