EDMONTON, Alta. – It’s a golden year for Westcan Bulk Transport, as 2014 is the 50th anniversary of the company’s creation.

Currently a division of RTL-Westcan Group of Companies, WestCan Bulk Transport was founded as 14-truck asphalt hauler in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in 1964. Today, it has more than 500 trucks in its fleet (including 77 owner/operators) and 1,650 trailers. The liquid and dry bulk commodities hauler now operates out of 16 locations across Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and the Northwest Territories, and it serves over 500 clients across the energy, mining, agriculture and construction industries.

“We are extremely proud of our successes over the past 50 years, through economic recessions and other challenges, and we know that we could not have done it without the loyalty of our customers and the tireless dedication and innovation of our employees”, said Grant Mitchell, president and CEO of RTL-Westcan. “The fact that we have so many long-time employees who have been with us for 10 years or more is a testament to the continued strength of our team and our organization”.

Since November, RTL-Westcan has been owned by tank truck transporter and logistics provider The Kenan Advantage Group.
