Our goal is to provide our customers with the highest quality of “hands on” personalized service for their transportation requirements. 


We provide truckload (TL) and less than truckload (LTL) service to and from most points across North America using our own fleet and a network of associated carriers to points beyond our regular transportation areas.

Our drivers are independent owner-operators with an extensive amount of experience in the transportation industry and a vested interest in you, the customer.

Why LOADSAFE

Direct Service

Most shipments are picked up at point of shipment, line-hauled and delivered by the same truck. Handling and transferring of shipments is kept to a minimum. This is an important advantage to shippers with freight that is subject to damage due to handling.


Service Coverage

We are licensed for all Canadian provinces and the continental United States. Utilizing our own fleet and a network of associated carriers we can provide competitive rates and service anywhere in Canada and the United States. If we are not positioned to give you the best service we will tell you that as well.


Transit Times

Generally, 500 miles per day plus loading and unloading time. Comparable to or better than general over the road service. 


Service Ratio

Our on-time delivery record is very close to 100%.

Rates
