    I can't believe how cheap it is to ship to Western Canada (from Ontario). It costs about the same to send a skid to Vancouver as it does to send one to OH...

    Bison does a very good job for us when we ship road and they will do a full load price + drops.

    Also are you talking road or rail? We ship everything by rail it is the only way to go once you understand the travel time.

    This is interesting...

    Western Canada is an EXTREMELY competitive market.

    With that much competition comes a vast variety of service levels.

    We use JR Hall, Caneda, Highlight and QuikX Road, Schroeder as our expedited partners.

    There are a ton of parners that are a little easier on the wallet. QuikTrax, Direct Right, CFF, NFF, Clarke, CCT and many others.

    My advise... Choose a partner that has a network of terminals that can support anything extra that your shippers don't tell you about when booking the shipments (straight truck, lift gate, appointments etc.).

    J&R Hall = hands down - they are typically more expensive, but certainly the service level speaks for itself

    Morning all,

    We are looking to expand out Western Canada LTL Carrier base and are looking for some good referrals. There are a lot to choose from but wondering what ones stand out with the board members? Thanks in advance all.
    PR.
