Bigger Fleet. Wider Reach. Broader Possibilities.

Ensuring the safe transportation of temperature sensitive products across Canada and to and from the USA – over 450,000 shipments and 1.1 billion pounds of product per year, to be exact – VersaCold is more than Canada’s largest temperature sensitive supply chain solutions company, we are your trusted transportation partner.

Whether you’re looking to go 3 blocks or 3,000 kilometres, standard or expedited, LTL or TL, domestic or cross border, we have you covered. Our exceptional food safety and cold-chain assurance ensures the integrity, quality and freshness of your product, and our transportation management system gives you total visibility every step of the way.

Our fleet
Our 700+ tractors and over 1,000 trailers are equipped with state-of-the-art sensors to record temperature information and transit during the movement of goods from point A to point B, and all our equipment and drivers conform to the highest safety standards.

Truckload transportation
Safe and fast. Whether you’re transporting shipments locally, nationally or across borders, our sizeable fleet can meet your needs with both short-haul and long-haul TL services that maintain temperature controlled status no matter where you’re shipping. We offer both Standard and Expedited TL service domestically and north and south cross border.

Less-than-truckload transportation
VersaCold provides LTL transportation solutions for many types of frozen and refrigerated products, with deliveries to all points in Canada and throughout the United States. By consolidating several LTL shipments from multiple suppliers, you can move smaller amounts of product more frequently and more cost effectively. In addition to our Standard LTL services, we also offer our Expedited multi-temperature service with the ability to cost-effectively split fresh and frozen goods in the same trailer. All services are available domestically and cross border, delivering both north and south.

Dedicated contract carriage (closed loop transportation)
When your products are crossing the final mile of delivery, presentation matters. That’s why VersaCold provides dedicated fleets with drivers who wear your company uniform and trucks branded with your corporate logo. This tailored solution can help you reduce your liability, improve regulatory compliance with vehicle and driver safety standards, and redirect capital to your core business rather than diverting it to truck fleets.

Less-than-truckload intermodal transportation
Intermodal transportation delivers even greater economies for your LTL shipments, enabling you to meet your cost and/or timeline objectives. Our fleet will pick up your LTL shipment and then transport it via intermodal rail. Using our LTL intermodal service can save you transportation dollars for those products that don’t require over-the-road service levels.

Direct-to-store delivery (DSD)
Direct-to-store delivery involves close contact with your customer, making it a particularly sensitive service. At VersaCold, we understand this service-sensitivity and have the experience to meet your unique DSD needs. Enjoy local, regional and national delivery services in all points in Canada. Our transport team includes experienced professionals who recognize the vital role they play in representing our clients.
