When COVID-19 became apparent in Canada, all of us – governments, associations, industries, businesses, communities, families, individuals – had to figure out our place in an ever-changing world caused by unprecedented circumstance.
While some industries were forced to close their doors to weather the storm, others became defined by how they could provide for and serve communities throughout the country and all over the world. The trucking industry was one of them.
Private fleets adapted to the changes, enforced their safety measures and worked hard to ensure that sectors were served, deliveries were made and shelves were stocked – all while ensuring that every single employee, operator and driver, on or off the road, was safe and cared for.
Private Motor Carrier had the opportunity to connect with two members of the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) – Lino Rollo, Chief Financial Officer of Roma Fuels Ltd., and David Zavitz, Chief Administrative Officer of Canada Cartage – and hear their stories of how each company rose to the occasion to operate as an ‘essential service,’ keep their team safe and continue to serve others through a time of uncertainty.
