Did you know the transportation industry is one of the oldest industries in Canada? It’s also one of the most sustainable! The refrigerated transportation industry has remained robust during these uncertain times ensuring that our grocery store shelves remain stocked. While some things are uncertain, the need for safe transportation for our food is not. This industry has a lot of responsibility and we are proud to be a part of it! 

Many are not aware of the countless opportunities that are available in the refrigerated trucking industry. Not only are there driving roles, there are lots of non-driving positions available. Here at Erb Transport, we have many flexible opportunities and room for advancement. We’ve had so many long-term employees that have changed roles or locations in the company throughout their career, and there are many significant employee milestones celebrated each year.
