Overview

With our combination of over 100 late model tractors (a mix of company owned and owner operated trucks), over 200 trailers, plus our ability to deliver North America wide, we can handle your freight! We perform dry van, flat deck and intermodal services from our two offices (Penticton and Delta BC) and multiple trailer yards. Out of our Penticton location we operate a B.C. MOT approved inspection and repair facility, keeping our modern fleet well maintained.

We also operate an office and yard in Delta BC, specializing in intermodal transport, dry van service and cross-border bonded loads. This terminal primarily moves freight out of West coast ports and rail yards delivering throughout BC and AB.
In addition, we operate Penticton Transit Service Ltd. out of our Penticton office. We have run the Penticton conventional transit service since 1977. We also operate the Naramata, Summerland and Osoyoos paratransit service in addition to custom transit service for Penticton. Further to our transit operations, we have provided school bus services for multiple school districts in the Penticton area since 1964.
