Willy’s Trucking Service History

2007

Started

Willy’s Trucking Service 

was started in 2007 by Willy Schmidt operating one truck leased to Forest Trotter Contracting – Willy’s employer at the time. Willy soon decided to go into business for himself hauling sulphur in northern Alberta. Soon a second truck was purchased and we began hauling gravel in the Peace River area. In early 2009, Willy was presented with the opportunity to experience yet another niche of the trucking industry, LTL freight.

Challenge

By September of 2009, the freight service was getting underway, and they were in for the challenge of a lifetime.

Willy’s Trucking Service started out in a shop north of Grimshaw, Alberta. Bernard would type all the delivery bills before jumping in the truck to do the freight deliveries every morning. This was while Willy took care of business in Edmonton.

At first, things were slow.

They even made a few trips north in a pickup truck.

Struggle

They even made a few trips north in a pickup truck.
It was April 2011 when Bernard moved to Grande Prairie to start a branch with daily freight service from Edmonton as well.

During this time, Willy was still commuting back and forth, weekdays in Edmonton and weekends in Peace River.

In June 2011 Willy moved to Edmonton to run the operations from the head office there.
In October of 2011, they bought out a local competitor in Peace River, which increased our customer base there.
