MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — CPC Logistics has moved into the Canadian market, establishing a Canadian company called Logistics Professionals Ltd. and then promptly acquiring Huron Services Group.
CPC specializes in contract truck driver and related logistics services. It will use its acquisition of Huron Services Group to enhance the resources of its existing Canadian operations and to assist in expanding operations in Alberta, Ontario and Quebec, the company said in a release.
“We had been aware of Huron’s outstanding reputation for providing high quality logistics services in Canada. They have been in business for 40 years and their philosophy for customer service and cooperation mirrors ours,” announced John Bickel Sr., president of CPC Logistics. “When this opportunity was presented to CPC we immediately took steps to close the transaction as soon as possible.”
“We are proud to join the CPC Canada family,” added John Thomson, president of Huron Services Group. “CPC’s excellent service and dedication to finding, together with their customers, mutually beneficial solutions to a variety of logistics and transportation issues are values which we have always held as priorities with our customers. We are pleased to be able to call upon the vast and value added services and resources that CPC, as a North American logistics leader, can offer in support of the services we can bring to our customers.”
