OUR STORY

Taking to the water for the first time 75 years ago, we’ve been innovating ever since. Known primarily for our successful navigation of the Canadian Arctic, we forged complex routes through unknown waters, always staying true to our purpose of doing things the right way for our clients. Now, 75 years on, we have grown to become Canada’s largest ocean-going bulk shipping company, mastering a multitude of complex routes on both the Great Lakes and the Arctic. With our arsenal of more than 65 owned vessels, we offer a seamless shipping experience for our customers. We’re proud to represent the highest standard of global service possible.
