To add value for our customers by providing sustainable supply chain solutions.
Nortrans was founded in 1992 with a single delivery van and a simple mission: to work hard and provide an honest, reliable transportation service for businesses across the Okanagan Valley. We operate in this same spirit today, staying true to our roots and the customers and community that grow alongside us.
Through a commitment to integrity and building long-term partnerships, Nortrans has built a genuine culture and a loyal customer base spanning forestry, building supplies, e-commerce, and heavy-industrial. With terminals in Kelowna and Chilliwack BC, our footprint covers all of Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest, while our third-party logistics division serves all of Canada and the continental United States. Today we operate the largest fleet of china top curtain side and roll tite trailers in Western Canada, as well as flat deck, 3PL, and mid/final mile divisions.
We’re proud of our story and are excited for what’s next. With a focus on driver wellbeing, sustainability, and growth into diverse business areas, we’re committed to leading the transportation and logistics industry into a new era while providing the same trusted service we’ve put our name behind since the beginning.
