Founded in 1985, SLH was initially created to bring efficiency to the transportation segment of the Sears supply chain. Serving the wide range of vendors and retail outlets (throughout Canada and the USA) was a great foundation and training ground for delivering just in time truckload services.
Over two decades later, SLH still maintains long standing relationships with it's original customers but has added hundreds of other customers, multiple service offerings and a variety of equipment types. All of which has led to our consistent ranking as one of the top 10 for hire carriers in Canada.
We complement our domestic and cross border truckload services with a full menu of freight management services that increase our capabilities and capacity across North America. With a specialization in full load intermodal and truckload markets, our expertise carries on to everything from LTL (less than truckload) to specialized loads. We literally transport everything from beached whales to beach blankets and ship from Newfoundland to New Mexico as efficiently as picking up and delivering around the corner.
We offer both asset and non asset-based services throughout Canada, the USA and Mexico. Our fleet resources tend to focus on Canada and the USA, east of the Mississippi. To optimize load balance, we use our partner carrier network and rail alliances for longer highway and intermodal lanes between the USA and Canada. Having said that, whatever proves the best solution for our customers is where we will direct our full resources.
Our organization continues to invest in the technology needed to drive efficiency, enhance communications and ultimately make it easy for customers to do business with SLH. From individual trailer tracking to full out EDI.
