Fortigo Freight Services Inc. has a long history of freight service in Canada, dating back to 1975 when our previous company, Fairway Canadian Express Inc. provided dedicated, flatbed, domestic and cross-border LTL & FTL transportation services to its North American customers. Fairway Canadian Express enjoyed a 15 year, exclusive strategic partnership with Watkins Motor Lines before being acquired by them in 2004 and subsequently sold to FedEx in 2006. From these roots, Fortigo Freight Services Inc. was born – a financially stable carrier with a commitment to safety and a social conscience that’s steeped in tradition.
Today, Fortigo is a privately held Canadian company with dedicated fleet services as its core business. Our company is built upon the values and work ethics that are foundational to family operated businesses; a difference you’ll see the moment you partner with us – just ask any of our customers!
We offer our customers the opportunity of concentrating on their core competency by effectively managing the risk associated with their fleet. Fortigo insulates you from the risk associated with your fleet’s cargo liability, insurance coverage and driver compensation. We also reduce your financial risk by eliminating capital expenditures for transportation purchases, maintaining assets and the costs of leasing equipment.
While anyone can assume risk, not everyone can execute timely customer-centric transitioning and service. The Fortigo C.A.R.E. Program (Contingency Active Response Execution) is our proactive approach to customer-specific contingency planning, matched with flawless execution.
We ensure your fleet is always at the right size by matching seasonal highs and lows. We also look after the smaller details like replacing a driver that is on vacation or off duty because of injury. Your fleet is in good hands with the Fortigo C.A.R.E. Program. It’s helped make Fortigo one of Canada’s fastest growing dedicated fleet carriers.
