Stockford New Shop
By George Fullerton
At the end of March Stockford Reefer Services held a grand opening of their new service shop off exit 191 in Woodstock, New Brunswick. Formerly, Stockford worked out of a shop in Belleville, just off route 95, between Woodstock, New Brunswick and Houlton, Maine.
Matthew and Hilary Stockford own and manage the business since they purchased it from Matthew’s parents in 2013. “We had simply outgrown the old shop and we came to the decision to move closer to the Trans-Canada Highway that would put us in a location to better serve our customers. The old location on 95 was great for trucks heading to the US, but a little off the main route for a lot of operators,” explained Matthew Stockford.
Hilary described the new shop as being two and half times larger than the old one with two drive through bays and one back-in bay which also provides cross dock service which can be used to redistribute loads, as well as the ability to transfer customer reefer loads to Stockford’s own reefer trailers when necessary to complete repairs from inside the customer’s trailer.
Employer of Choice
Size matters. It’s satisfying working for an employer large enough to offer attractive wages and benefits, but small enough for employees to be recognized for their individual efforts.
Caron Transportation Systems is that employer.
Qualified people looking to get behind the wheel or to provide support inside the business are always welcomed. Opportunities exist for a wide range of people, including those who are – for the first time considering working in the trucking industry.
We want our workforce to represent the community, which encompasses all genders, ethnicities and abilities. That’s why we supported Women Building Futures (WBF), a pilot program that helps women in Alberta get their Class 1 Professional driver’s license. We offer graduates of the program the opportunity to work permanently for Caron. We further support women in transportation by being a gold sponsor for the 2017 Western Women with Drive Leadership conference.
