Paul Brandt, Vermillion bay, Ontario. 1956

Our History

Welcome and thank you for your interest in our company!

In 1951 at the age of 17 Paul Brandt headed to a Northern logging camp looking for opportunity. Paul was given a job as a truck driver. Paul adapted to this job very quickly and within several months, the contractor who had hired him offered to help Paul purchase a truck. Paul continued at this job and by the late 1960’s owned 5 logging trucks.

In 1971 Paul Brandt Trucking was founded and the focus of the new company was hauling farm products into the USA and Western Canada. Paul had the insight to be on the forefront of the industry’s growing demand for change.

In the early 1980’s, Paul Brandt Trucking began the transition to 48’ reefers and dry vans, and later 53’ enclosed trailers. This move greatly expanded our client base and has resulted in exponential growth in our operations. Adapting to changes - often ahead of the times - Paul Brandt Trucking now operates in 48 US States and most Canadian Provinces.

Paul Brandt Trucking is currently owned and managed by Bill Brandt, Kerry Brandt and Tracy Brandt. The three brothers all grew up in the trucking industry, and are all sons of our founder.
