Vitran Express inks two new key accounts, adds 1000 trailers to its fleet

by Canadian Shipper

Vitran Express, a wholly owned subsidiary of North American transportation and logistics provider Vitran Corporation Inc, has announced two new clients have joined its customer base.

Avery Dennison, a provider of pressure-sensitive technology and self-adhesive solutions for consumer products and label systems, and North America’s largest distributor of educational materials, Pearson Education, both signed multi-year freight distribution agreements with Vitran. Financial terms were not disclosed.

These new additions, as well as the Company’s existing clientele, will be able to tap into Vitran’s new purchase of 1000 “Pup” trailers from Indiana-based Wabash Trailer, the largest trailer acquisition in the company’s history.

“We believe that despite the challenging North American economy, our Company will put these trailers to good use based on current and expected levels of demand,” said Rick Gaetz, Acting President of Vitran’s US LTL operation
