Minimax Express Transportation Inc began operating on February 11, 1991. With three trucks and ten pup trailers, our mission was to provide consistent, next day, dependable, personalized LTL transportation services between Cornwall, Toronto and Montreal. In 1992 the service area was expanded to include the Ottawa and Brockville market. Kingston, Belleville, Smiths Falls and Perth were later added to complete the coverage of Eastern Ontario.
In 2002 a service center was opened in Toronto. We now have a team of 35 drivers, freight handlers and staff. All deliveries and pick ups within a 100km of the Greater Toronto Area are performed by Minimax employees with Minimax equipment. A year later, in 2003, another service center was opened in Ottawa. There a team of 12 drivers, freight handlers and staff assure a high level of service within the Ottawa area. In 2011 a fourth service center was opened in Drummondville. This service center will increase our market presence in the province of Quebec. From Drummondville we service directly all points in Quebec centre, including Quebec City, Trois-Rivières, Sherbrooke, Beauce and all points in between. Just recently our fifth service center opened in Belleville. This service center will strengthen our presence in the Highway 401 corridor. All points along Highway 401 between Brockville and Bowmanville, including Peterborough will be serviced from Belleville.
We are proud to announce that our 6th service center is now open in Kitchener. From there we will provide direct service to and from southwestern Ontario. The Kitchener service center will better ensure that customers in the area enjoy the high level of service they have been accustomed to from Minimax.
Minimax presently operates 100 power units and 150 trailers. Our head office and main service center in Cornwall is located a short distance from 2 major distribution centres in Walmart and Shoppers Drug Mart.
Minimax is owned and operated by Paul, Yves and Marc Poirier. We will continue to earn your respect through our commitment to consistent, next day, dependable and personalized LTL transportation services. Over 1000 companies depend on it.
