Our Company

From shipping to storage to logistics, we have you covered.

Melburn Truck Lines Corp. has been in operation since 1952, and throughout the late 1970s it evolved into one of the first container carriers in Ontario. Musket Transport Ltd was incorporated in 1993, and over seven years it became widely respected and recognized for its proficiency. In March 1999, Musket acquired and merged with Melburn to become the largest intermodal carrier in Ontario. This marriage created a family of well-experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic individuals working as a team to provide unparalleled service to the shipping and trailer industry.

For over 20 years, Musket Transport Ltd. has been giving Ontario-based companies the confidence of knowing their products will get where they need to go anywhere in North America. Our history and experience has also made us the most efficient Dry Van Trailer Service to the Eastern US and Midwest States. We have the capacity and knowledge to meet all of your shipping needs. Our operations and customer service teams are highly experienced and backed by the very best tracking technology.

Our clients represent almost every sector, and range from local companies to global brands like The Home Depot, Nestle, Atlantic Packaging and Coca-Cola. Whether we're picking up, dropping off or in transit, we embody the care and professionalism that have made them household names.
