Canada’s biggest truck fleets: The Top 100 (1-25)

The Today’s Trucking Top 100 — Canada’s definitive ranking of the nation’s largest truck fleets by size — has been upended by recent mergers and acquisitions. TFI International is purchasing UPS Freight, among others. Bison Transport has been acquired by James Richardson and Co.

And Seaboard Transportation Systems is acquiring Armour Transportation Systems. Fleets throughout the list have added capacity and tucked in new operations. But as much as things change, some things remain the same.

There’s a familiar face at the top of the leader board for 2021.

The Today’s Trucking Top 100 is the definitive ranking of fleet capacity in Canada.
