Grounded in our history
Before the advent of the internet, cell phones, TVs, or even cars, two young Canadian boys from meager beginnings, who’d never before crossed paths, discovered they had a shared vision: starting and growing a delivery service so they could support and feed their families.
They set out in different parts of Canada to deliver newspapers as a source of income for their families. However, E.H. O’Brien and H.H. Marshall were anything but average paperboys. They were entrepreneurs, and from the humblest of beginnings, they built leading distribution and delivery companies in Ontario and Atlantic Canada, respectively.
Today, TNG is backed by the Jim Pattison Group, a private company with $10.1 billion in sales, 605 worldwide locations, and more than 45,000 employees.
In over 110 years, we’ve gone from delivering papers via hand wagons to a 1,300 strong, on-the-ground fleet. Now we’re a team of more than 15,000.
And although we come from humble beginnings, we’re no longer just transporters. We’re movers and shakers. We don’t just deliver goods; we deliver on promises.
