CANADA CARTAGE EXPANDS FINAL MILE DELIVERY SERVICES WITH THE ACQUISITION OF MACKIE MOVING SYSTEMS
Canada Cartage has acquired Mackie Moving Systems, one of Canada’s leading providers of specialized transportation, home delivery and household moving.
Established in 1928, Mackie Moving Systems is an Atlas Van Lines agent and the operating company for CRST Specialized Transportation in Canada. Mackie provides first and final mile delivery solutions, home and office delivery, household goods moving, and warehousing and distribution services on a national scale.
“We are excited about the acquisition of Mackie Moving Systems and look forward to helping their team to grow throughout Canada and the United States”, said Canada Cartage President & CEO Jeff Lindsay. “Mackie has a very solid customer base, many long-term staff and drivers, and an outstanding safety and service record. This acquisition accelerates our growth in home deliveries, household goods, warehousing, and specialized transportation, which are segments where we see exciting opportunities in the coming years. It’s great that two Canadian companies, with a combined history of over 200 years of success in the transportation industry, can come together to write their next chapter.”
Added Mackie CEO Scott Mackie, “Canada Cartage has a stellar reputation for delivering excellent customer service, so we feel very confident that our customers will continue to receive the same type of service for years to come. Their resources, national coverage, and the cultural fit between our two organizations were very important factors in our decision to join Canada Cartage.”
Scott and Norm Mackie will continue to be actively engaged in the operation of the business along with employees, drivers and contractors. The business will continue to operate under the Mackie Moving Systems brand. The Mackie senior management team will work closely with Gerald Nakano, Senior Vice President of Canada Cartage’s Final Mile division, as the two companies come together as one team.
