TORONTO, Ont. — Online grocer, Grocery Gateway, has purchased a truck fleet from Direct Right Cartage Ltd. (DRC).

Grocery Gateway bought the Direct Home Delivery division of DRC for an undisclosed price. They also purchased Skulogix, a Toronto-based software and electronic transaction service.

Grocery Gateway president, Al Sellery, says that his company will now be able to run two separate truck fleets, noting that Grocery Gateway trucks generally run in the evening as opposed to Direct Home trucks which usually run from 9 to 5.

“We’ll be able to help in their peak periods with our trucks and they can help in our peak periods with their trucks,” explains Sellery.

Grocery Gateway has $40 to $45 million in annual sales and has recently expanded into Hamilton. However, the company is still losing money.
