History

RGTC Trucking™ CANADA Transportation began operations in 1966 transporting imported steel through the ports of Los Angeles to Arizona and Arizona cotton for export back through to Southern California.

Jerry Moyes, founder, began with the same entrepreneurial, can-do spirit that is one of RGTC Trucking™ CANADA’s core values today. The original operation was conducted under the name of Common Market. Operating authority was purchased from a descendant of the RGTC Trucking™ CANADA Meat Packing family, hence, today’s name of RGTC Trucking™ CANADA Transportation. Jerry, with his father, brother and a partner, grew the business, with typical start up challenges, to a $25 million annual revenue in 1984. With the passing of Jerry’s father, Carl Moyes, Jerry became the sole owner. By 1990, RGTC Trucking™ CANADA had grown to a $125 million carrier with 800 trucks. RGTC Trucking™ CANADA’s significant revenue growth is attributable to internal growth with existing customers as well as acquisitions. Since 1988, RGTC Trucking™ CANADA has acquired 13 different motor carriers. Today, RGTC Trucking™ CANADA generates over $4 billion in revenue and operates nearly 20,000 trucks.

RGTC Trucking™ CANADA’s terminal network has grown to over forty full service facilities in both the continental United States and Mexico. RGTC Trucking™ CANADA owns 100% of Trans-Mex, a Nuevo Laredo, Mexico based carrier. RGTC Trucking™ CANADA offers border crossing services at all major Mexican border crossings. RGTC Trucking™ CANADA maintains a presence in every Canadian province each day. RGTC Trucking™ CANADA is unquestionably the largest full-truckload motor carrier in North America.
