Financial terms were not disclosed.
As part of the transaction, Manitoulin has acquired all of the LTL division’s employees and assets.
Manitoulin President Don Goodwill described Hi-Way 13 as “a major player in a geographic pocket of Alberta that we want to have a stronger presence in.”
He also praised the company’s customer service and safety record.
The purchase is Manitoulin's second Alberta-based LTL acquisition in four months. In September, the company announced it acquired the LTL and van freight business of Edmonton-based Westcan Freight Systems.
Manitoulin, based in Mississauga, Ontario, offers expedited LTL and truckload services, heavy haul, international freight forwarding, customs brokerage, logistics and warehousing.
