MTE Logistix Group of Companies

MTE Logistix was established in 1920 with little more than a warehouse, a couple of trucks and a mission to provide the best service in the industry.

In 2020, MTE Logistix celebrated its 100 years in business. Established in 1920 as Motor Truck Express, the business was essentially a warehouse, a couple of trucks and a mission to provide the best service in the industry. Today MTE Logistix is one of Western Canada’s largest third-party logistics providers. Fueled by an unfailing commitment to client success, and backed by a century of experience, MTE Logistix operates more than 3.5 million square feet of warehouse space across multiple facilities in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta and employs upwards of 300 people.

The exciting new strategic vision for MTE Logistix will entail the pursuit of new business partnerships, technological investments, and transactional growth opportunities throughout Western Canada and eventually Eastern Canada. Inclusive with this vision is the objective to bring on and build upon our executive team to help guide and shape this transformation.
