Container Trucking Association of Ontario Sign Unprecedented Deal With Industry

Brampton- The Container Trucking Association of Ontario (CTAO) has finalized a historic agreement at 6:30pm on September 16, 2015

This unprecedented settlement, which was reached with container trucking CEOS after 9 days of tense and difficult negotiations. includes a fair percentage increase in rates for the first time in over a decade and is unprecedented in the North American Container Trucking industry.

This agreement which has been signed by both parties addresses wait times at terminals, and it reflects today’s inflation rates. This was the result of a collective desire to get the drivers back on the road.

“Both parties came together in good faith and we thank the CEO’s who have signed today, we applaud your leadership, courage and cooperation.”

Patrick Rhodin,
CTAO President
