From a single truckload of potatoes in the 1950s to a fleet of thousands, Day & Ross has grown to become one of the largest transportation companies in Canada. With more than 7,500 employees, drivers, and owner operators, we’re a major player in cross-border, LTL, and Truckload transportation, offering a diversified portfolio of transport and logistics solutions across North America. Our commitment to safety and sustainability is rooted in the family values we share with our parent company, McCain Foods Limited.We’ve been around since 1950 because we believe some principles just can’t be compromised. Call us traditional, but we treat your stuff like it’s our own. So whether we’re delivering precious cargo – like that sold-out shipment of holiday gifts — or a sense of stability for our own team and their families, we’re here for the long haul. It’s tradition.

ESG/Ethical Impact

As a transportation company, we need diesel and gasoline for our daily operations, but we’re committed to doing our part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and finding innovative ways to operate more sustainably. Here’s how we’re taking care of the environment on the road and in the office. On the road. • We’ve been a SmartWay approved carrier since 2009. • We have miles per gallon (MPG) targets for all owner operators to help reduce fuel consumption. • We maximize fuel efficiency by route planning, loading trailers to optimum levels, and using Long Combination Vehicles (LCVs) to reduce our emissions per tonne of freight. • We use technology that optimizes our fuel efficiency, like aerodynamic trailers, low rolling resistance tires, and TIREMAAX® PRO inflation systems. • Our drivers receive pedal management training to learn how to drive efficiently and avoid excess fuel usage. • We’re investing in alternative fuel and electric heavy-duty vehicles, with pilots and evaluations underway. • We’ve developed a new environmental standard for the construction of our terminals across North America. • We’re investing in new terminals with many of the latest environmental innovations: solar panels; geo-thermal heating and cooling for the office; pre-cast wall panels in the dock; LED lighting; electric forklifts, and charging stations for employee vehicles, yard trucks, and one day, local delivery trucks too. • We’re conducting ongoing energy audits across our network, which have led to a reduction of 2.4 million kilowatt-hours annually since 2017.
