Trucking firm Trimac made the transition from public to private so it could manage for long-term profitability

Drive down any major highway in Alberta, or North America for that matter, and it probably won’t be long until you spot the familiar Trimac logo on the side of a tractor-trailer rig. It shouldn’t be a surprise. According to Modern Bulk Transporter magazine, the Calgary-based Trimac Corporation ranked as the second largest North American bulk trucking company in 2001 (based on revenues). It’s an impressive record for the company that had its beginnings in 1945 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan when Jack McCaig and his partner Al Cameron started Maccam Transport.
