Much has changed since 1958 when founders Frank and Gerry Arnold saw an opportunity to expand the family farm with the transportation of grain. “It’s exciting to see Arnold Bros. reach the 60 year mark,” stated Gary Arnold, Executive Vice President. Incorporated in August 1958, this family business now employs five generations with the youngest employee being 21 years old and the oldest over 80.
“The company has far surpassed what Frank and Gerry envisioned back in the ‘50s,” said Gary. “Arnold Bros. Transport hauls a variety of goods throughout Canada and the US due to the multiple types of equipment we have available. We work with dozens and dozens of industries, with a loyal and long-standing customer base that relies on the quality of our service and our people.”
Arnold Bros. Transport Ltd. has evolved over the years into various forms of trucking operations from hauling farm machinery on flat beds and agricultural products in the early days, to operating with dry van and refrigerated trailers in the present. Throughout the years, the company has always stayed focused on being a single source truckload company, servicing both Canada and the US.
The company is headquartered in Winnipeg and provides services to a variety of Fortune 500 companies as well as rural small business operators; each one being a significant part of the carrier’s growth. Arnold Bros. Transport has offices in Milton, Calgary, and Edmonton and yard Locations in Vancouver, Regina, Saskatoon and Montreal.
Arnold Bros. Transport Ltd. continues to be a family owned and operated business that values relationships with customers, employees, owner operators, and suppliers. It has always strived to be innovative and to be a leader in the transport industry.
A private Gala celebration for staff, owner operators and vendors took place October 6, 2018 at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. “You don’t reach the 60 year mark without focusing on quality, investing in your future and appreciating your employees,” concluded Arnold.
