As the open-deck division operating within the framework of Gardewine Group Inc, Northern Deck provides Coast to Coast service in Canada. Northern Deck’s focus on shipments originating from and destined to Canadian locations allows us to concentrate our resources on providing superior open-deck service to our customers.
In order to provide customers with seamless service when a load must be picked up or delivered outside Canada, Northern Deck is able to work in conjunction with Northern Logistics, Gardewine Group Inc.'s third party logistics division, to ensure all your requirements are fulfilled.
Northern Deck is equipped with a diverse fleet of equipment and staffed by trained professionals capable of designing custom services in order to meet any Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) or Truckload (TL) freight requirements of our customers. As a result of these capabilities, Northern Deck provides our customer base with dedicated City Cartage service, Short Haul “peddle-run” service within the Gardewine network and Long Haul service throughout Canada.
To service the needs of our customers, Northern Deck has a fleet of more than 90 trailers and 70 tractors. The Northern Deck trailer bank includes a variety of equipment such as:

Utilizing this equipment, Northern Deck can handle virtually any open-deck requirement, including over-dimensional loads requiring special permits, escort services, and more.
Northern Deck has experience with a multitude of Canadian industries including lumber, retail, steel, construction, agriculture and mining. The continuing relationships with companies such as Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting, Vale Inco and Agnico Eagle demonstrate the service commitment and ongoing quality that Northern Deck has provided to customers for over half a century.
The adoption of new technology is one of the driving forces allowing Northern Deck to grow our efficiencies and enable our customers to obtain relevant and up to date information on the status of their loads. Through a connection to Gardewine Group Inc's Online System customers are able to trace their shipments, acquire Proof of Delivery documentation and review the historic data of their loads transported with Northern Deck.

"Northern Deck has been providing service to Russel Metals since their inception, initially providing LTL and TL service to the mining companies in Flin Flon and Thompson. Today Northern Deck provides us with dedicated City Cartage service, dedicated short haul peddle runs to customers in Manitoba, LTL service in Manitoba and Ontario and TL service throughout Canada. The capacity Northern Deck provides has given us the ability to increase service to our customers and has helped our business grow.
