Fastrax Transportation

Edwards Transport

The Day & Ross Transportation Group, a wholly-owned division of McCain Foods Limited, announced today the closing of an Agreement for the acquisition of G. Edwards Enterprises Ltd. (“Edwards”), a Saskatoon based truckload carrier.

“Day & Ross is committed to the growth of its business throughout North America for the benefit of our current and future customers, and this acquisition will place us closer to that goal,” says John Doucet, president and CEO. “With the addition of Edwards we are able to make a number of enhancements across our group of businesses. We gain a modern terminal in Saskatoon which opens up new lanes in Western Canada for our truckload network and we gain capacity to grow our LTL (Less than Truck Load), small package and dedicated businesses. We are also fortunate that Jeff Edwards will join the management group of Day & Ross, further strengthening our team. As an owner and key decision maker at Edwards, Jeff’s knowledge and enthusiasm for the business will be a significant asset as we work to leverage the full potential of this new opportunity.”

Entrepreneur Garry Edwards established Edwards Transport in 1977 and has led the growth of the Company in Western Canada on a reputation of meeting clients’ individual needs for general truckload services. Today, Edwards reliably delivers produce, meat and other fresh and frozen food for its customers. Day & Ross plans to integrate the Edwards terminal within its Fastrax division, uniting the capacity of both businesses for future growth.
