Since its inception in 1950, more than 60 years ago, Day & Ross Inc., a wholly owned transportation and logistics subsidiary of McCain Foods Limited, has grown from a handful of trucks hauling between just a few provinces in eastern Canada into one of Canada’s largest national transportation providers. Having earned a spot within Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies for the last seven-consecutive years, The Day & Ross Transportation Group continues to strive for excellence.
Day & Ross is headquartered in Hartland, New Brunswick (just 15 minutes from McCain Foods founding plant in Florenceville) and has more than 2,500 employees in terminals across Canada, 3,500 owner operators and 3,300 company owned trucks and trailers.

In some cases, particularly between Day & Ross and Sameday Worldwide, facilities across Canada are shared.
Each division is in a different segment of the transportation market and, as such, has strategies unique to each division.
