    Central is a much better ran company than Vitran. Debt free and much better leadership.

    I was going to make a new thread for this because I think it's important information for you guys but screw it.

    When I worked at CT they had the guy that was in charge of all dock operations there one night. He was bitchen about nobody using load bars. I quote : " If there is a manager here telling you to do something different or something you don't think it's right, let me know, call me, I'll fire all of them before I ever get rid of one driver".

    The announcement:

    The President of Vitran Express U.S., Chris Keylon, announces the sale of the company to an acquisition company owned by Matthew Moroun. Mr. Moroun is a member of a long standing transportation company whose interest include LTL, TL, Flatbed, Third Party Logistics and warehousing.

    Chris Keylon’s comments, “I’m very excited about this acquisition. I look forward to the stability and consistency that we now have, and personally I’m excited to remain with the company. This should be a great relief to Vitran employees and customers as now we can complete many of the positive initiatives we have been pursuing.”

    Like the Moroun’s other companies, Vitran is firmly on a plan for stability and growth. It will not only need the hard work of all of its employees to service their existing customers, but also to support our growth initiatives.

    We will be in touch shortly to establish what we plan to be a long and fruitful relationship for all involved.
