About us

Carmel Transport International Ltd was founded in 1991 by Robert Volfson and started out as a one-truck operation transporting ocean containers in Ontario. Robert believed in prompt and personal customer service, and that continues to be the backbone of Carmel Transport’s success in the intermodal industry.

Today, Carmel Transport operates a fleet of 160 power units and over 600 chassis across three offices in Canada.  The chassis fleet provides Carmel Transport with the ability to carry 20’, 40’, 45’ and 53’ dry and refrigerated containers. Supported by our yards strategically located close to the rail terminals in Mississauga, Carmel Transport is able to provide up to 10 acres of secured yard storage for both short and long term storage requirements.
