KTG is growing again with the addition of Trailwood Transport Ltd and Nexus Freight Ltd.
Founded in 1984, Trailwood Transport Ltd, is a family operated transportation company that offers domestic and cross-border truckload services, specializing in the automotive industry. Nexus Freight Ltd is a local cartage carrier, servicing Southern Ontario. Their combined fleet of Trailwood’s 112 trucks, 385 trailers and Nexus’s 20 trucks and 12 trailers are a welcome addition to KTG’s growing network.
“Trailwood and Nexus are great strategic fits with the Kriska Transportation Group,” said Kriska CEO, Mark Seymour. “Their culture and results are a welcome addition to the KTG family. Trailwood’s expertise in the automotive industry brings further diversification to our industry mix. The addition of Nexus gives us the local capacity to help supplement our current network needs. We expect to find many synergies and opportunities to help both businesses grow profitably.”
Trailwood and Nexus will continue to be led by General Manager Lorie Thompson and its current management teams. Mark Beckstead, Trailwood’s former owner, will represent the company going forward with a focus on maintaining key customer relationships and growth.
“Becoming part of KTG offers Trailwood and Nexus the opportunity to lower our cost base, bring long term stability to our business and collaborate with other transportation professionals in the KTG family.” Added Beckstead “We’re excited to be part of a group that values our brand strength and who are like-minded as it relates to trucking.”
