Trucking began in 1983 when Bryan Cathcart took over Ottor Freightways.
When Bryan took over and gave it the new name, the wheels turned
into success. The company shot up from 2 trucks and 3 employees
into 26 tractors, 18 straight frames, 65 trailers, and 35/40 full
and part time employees. Employees include those that work for
Apsley-Peterborough Transport, a part of Cathcart Trucking.
As time passed, the business went from making trails around town
into going anywhere in Ontario, such as delivering for American
owned Appleton Papers for the last 23 years. Since Appleton started
keeping track in 1990, they have noticed something outstanding
about Cathcart Trucking. "We're going on our 19th year
of 100% On-Time Deliveries in the province of Ontario," says
"There's been over 87,000 deliveries across Ontario, and
everyone of them has been delivered the day they were supposed
to, AND ON TIME; That's led us to more customers."
Bryan is proud of his award-winning employees who
will go through "snowing and blowing" to get it there
on time. In fact Cathcart trucking has won the Eagle Club Award
for On Time Delivery for the past 19 years- The only Canadian
carrier to win this award every year!
"We have some really good employees that strive to do what's
right for the customer," he says. "It amazes me
some days what lengths they will go to, to make the customer happy."
business growing at a rapid rate Bryan welcomed then 5 year employee
Denise Mc Cullough on as a full time partner in the business to
both allow Bryan more personal time and promote Cathcart Truckings'
Starting out as a part time office employee Denise realized quickly
that she had indeed found her niche.
Building on the strength of the customer service reputation Cathcart
trucking had developed, Denise combined her enthusiasm, customer
service skills, and experience to increase the client roster, expand
the fleet and employees.
When you ask Denise where she would like to be in 5 years she will
smile and tell you "Right here, in Peterborough keeping
our customers happy", a trait that has become the hallmark
of Cathcart Trucking, happy clientele.
Cathcart Trucking is small enough to do the little things, but big
enough to compete with big companies. Besides reasonable prices,
customers also get super service. "We have some of the same
customers since we've started. Usually, once we have a new customer
they stay with us because we look after them and treat them well."
Cathcart Trucking also deals with a lot of family owned companies
because they like the hands-on attitude of Bryan and Denise, which
is similar to theirs.
"I love Peterborough, I've lived here all my life"
and that's why Bryan plans to stay at his location at 665 Neal Drive
Peterborough Ontario, for a long time down the road.
