Highland Transport

Founded in 1967, Highland Transport is one of Canada’s leading long haul just-in-time truckload carriers. The Company is well managed and provides services for a wide range of industries throughout North America (9 Provinces and 48 State authorities). Highland has terminals in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and Moncton as well as a sales office in Calgary. The Company’s main service area is Ontario, Quebec, Maritimes, and States east of the Mississippi River. In the West, Highland services British Columbia, Alberta, and the Northwestern U.S. The size and strength of Highland has enabled the Company to meet the challenge of a changing marketplace and to remain successful through economic cycles.


Highland operates transportation services in the following two niche areas:

  • Just-in-time general freight truckload carrier
  • Intermodal carrier

By continually reinvesting in the Company and its employees, Highland maintains a strong focus on providing an elite level of customer service. Highland has consistently achieved an on-time performance rating of over 98%.
