This commitment has put us at the forefront of important advancements in technology and safety, and Challenger has received recognition on numerous occasions for our efforts in the areas of safety, efficiency and business excellence.
Since starting this company in 1975, I have seen significant changes in the transportation industry that have reshaped the parameters of our business. Technological advancements continue to take us in exciting new directions by allowing us to improve operating efficiencies and provide enhanced services to meet our customers increasingly diversified transportation needs and improved operating efficiencies. Today, we offer a full range of transportation, logistics and integrated services to Canadian, US, and Mexican markets.
As part of the company's strategic plan for managed growth and development, the Challenger Group of Companies has grown to include Elgin Motor Freight, Cam Hiltz Trucking, MCX and Lodwick Transport.
