Willy’s Trucking Service started out in a shop just North of Grimshaw, Alberta. Bernard would type all the delivery bills before jumping in the truck to do the freight deliveries every morning, while Willy took care of business in Edmonton. At first, things were really slow. We even made a few trips North in a pickup truck!
It was April 2011 when Bernard moved to Grande Prairie to start a branch with daily freight service from Edmonton as well. At this time Willy was still commuting back and forth- weekdays in Edmonton, weekends in Peace River. In June 2011 Willy moved to Edmonton to run the operations from the head office there.
In October of 2011, we bought out a local competitor in Peace River, Alberta which significantly increased our customer base there.
Over time we have hired a number of individuals with experience in the industry, which has been tremendous in assisting the company. We are confident that we are providing reliable freight service in the Peace Region now and for years to come.
