Is there a winner in the Tri-Line derby?

CALGARY, Alta. — Over the past few days, many of Canada’s top fleet executives have flocked here on a quest to abscond with the biggest jewel from TCT Logistics’ failed crown: the Tri-Line division.

For most it may have been an exercise in futility, however, as industry sources are anticipating an announcement will come from TransForce in the coming days regarding its latest acquisition.

Unfortunately, calls to the Montreal-based fleet’s president and chief executive officer, Alain Bedard, went un-returned — as he was tied-up all day Thursday in high-level strategy sessions with key individuals.

TransForce currently runs trucks under several fleet flags, including Cabano Kingsway Transport and TST Overland. It has a preexisting relationship with the folks at TCT, having purchased the fallen truck giant’s Daily division less than three months ago.
