TFI Buys Normandin Transit

TFI International purchased Normandin Transit, a provider of less-than-truckload and truckload freight services in the United States and Canada.


Normandin, headquartered in Napierville, Quebec, operates a fleet of more than 300 tractors and 1,000 trailers. TFI is based in Montreal.

Normandin’s Danielle and Andre Normandin will continue to lead the carrier as a stand-alone unit within TFI’s LTL segment.

“The acquisition of Normandin strengthens our position in the important cross-border market,” TFI CEO Alain Bedard said.

TFI ranks No. 10 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in North America. In 2017, the company generated revenues of $4.7 billion with 57% from Canada and 43% from the United States. TFI operated 7,058 power units, 24,617 trailers and 9,074 independent contractors at year-end 2017.
