Nortrans Freight Management acquires Chilliwack-based Micra Transportation Services

Nortrans Freight Management has acquired Micra Transportation Services, a company which operates a fleet of roll tite and curtain side trailers, and specializes in third-party logistics across North America.

The acquisition increases the size of Nortrans’ fleet to 85 trailers and 65 power units and adds to Nortrans’ existing fleet of curtain side trailers.

“We’re excited to announce that Micra will be joining the Nortrans family in the coming weeks. Their deep experience in third-party logistics and fleet of specialized equipment will help us better serve our existing customers and expand into new markets across Canada and the U.S. Over the past 11 years, Micra has earned the reputation as a leading transportation service and has built a set of values and culture which align with our own,” says Derek Norman, founder and president of Nortrans.

Craig Penner, founder and president of Micra, will remain with the business and will act as a key member of the Nortrans team, continuing to serve Micra’s existing customer base.
