Canada: Manitoulin Transport buys Duckering’s Transport

Gore Bay, Ontario, Canada: Manitoulin Transport has bought Duckering’s Transport  of Red Deer, an Alberta-based, a less-than-truckload provider.

“Duckering’s Transport has carved out a niche for itself in the Alberta LTL marketplace and earned a reputation for on-time delivery as well as a customer-first philosophy that we share,” said Jeff King, president of Manitoulin Transport.

“It is an important addition to Manitoulin as it instantly increases our direct service footprint with over 100 new direct service points. This, combined with our technology, equipment and best-in-class supply chain processes, means that businesses in the region can connect faster and more easily with customers and prospects across the province and around the globe. This will help them compete and grow in an increasingly competitive world.”

Duckering’s Transport was founded by Clarence Duckering in 1971 and has remained a family-owned business for more than 40 years. It has terminal facilities in Brooks, Calgary, Camrose, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Lethbridge, and Medicine Hat.

This is the latest in a long line of recent acquisitions by Manitoulin Transport.
