About Us

Mactrans – a 3PL Logistics Company

At Mactrans Logistics, we provide Third Party Logistics (3PL) services across North America.  We are non-asset based which means we are not pressured to fill our own truck.  Instead, we find the most appropriate carrier, mode, and shipping method to best suit your needs.

You will work with one of our dedicated transportation experts, whose carrier and distribution experience presents a new perspective when analyzing your day-to-day shipping procedures.  Shippers are turning away from traditional shipping methods to true, full-service logistics providers for answers. And we have responded with more than standard freight services. Mactrans Logistics has literally reinvented transportation to suit each customer’s exact requirements.

Company History 

Mactrans Logistics started operating in January of 2009. It was founded by its current President and Owner, Joel MacKay.  From its humble beginnings of 3 employees working in a small office Mactrans now has a team of over 30 employees and sales agents working from its offices in Toronto, Montreal, Moncton, and Calgary.

Joel attributes Mactrans’ growth over the last decade to the fact that “we have assembled a great team of people that care about our company, customers, and carriers.  On the customer side we are grateful for the business we receive and work hard to develop customized transportation solutions.  On the carrier side we pay quickly and are respectful of our carrier base.  They are the backbone of our business and everyone who works for Mactrans understands that.”  Joel adds “I’m so proud of what we have accomplished over the last fourteen years and can’t wait to see what the next decade brings for Mactrans.”
