From there, Bulk Carriers dispatch trucks and loads throughout North America offering their customers superior logistics as well as friendly service.
In the beginning, Bulk Carriers was a one truck operation. They hauled of bulk petroleum throughout Prince Edward Island for Gulf Canada. From there, the company expanded into the hauling of liquid asphalt.
