We are pleased to announce that we have completed the purchase of Best Transfer assets out of Guelph, ON. Best Transfer is a family run trucking company operating both flatbed, and tank operations. Contrans Flatbed Group has acquired the flatbed portion of their business and they will remain in their current location in Guelph, ON. The Guelph operations will be reporting to Steven Brookshaw.
We are pleased to announce that the following staff will be joining us:
The current owner’s sons will be joining our company; Brad Williamson as an operations manager for the Guelph operations and Blair Williamson as a driver trainer for the Guelph operations as well as for our OD division. Brad and Blair have both been in the trucking industry for over 10 years and bring their experience with them as they join our company. Sylvain Lattaro and Lori Oliver will be the dispatchers for this new division and Lisa Haworth will be an office admin working on various administrative functions for the Guelph operations. Our organization is fortunate to have these individuals joining our team and bringing their years of experience to our organization.
Please welcome these drivers and staff and please assist them in any way as they make the transition into the Contrans Flatbed Group
Have a great day
Did you know obstructive sleep apnea and diabetes have a strong correlation? More than 50% of people with diabetes also have sleep apnea. The more severe the OSA, the stronger the correlation of the prevalence of insulin resistance. Effective treatment of OSA has been shown to improve glycemic control in patients with type II diabetes that persists long term.
Recently one of our drivers nominated us for the TCA's annual Best Fleets to Drive For contest. We are very thankful to be recognized this way by one of the guys we have working with us each and every day. As part of the process, we have been required to complete a questionnaire outlining all the different aspects of our company: benefits and compensation, business information, performance and recognition, operational and HR strategies, and work-life balance. Today we will be participating in a telephone interview to expand upon our questionnaire responses and following this our drivers will be asked to take part in an online survey. This online survey will be available to them to complete until the end of the year and we will have a completion target set for us to reach that will be 10-15% of our fleet. Once all these steps are complete, the information will be compiled and we will wait to see if we are a Best Fleet to Drive For...fingers crossed!
Happy Birthday Kevin Gates!! Hope you have a great day!!
