Providing our customers with the power of freight matching since 1990

Some see freight matching as volumes and capacity. Although that is true, we see it as the lifeblood of the businesses of our customers. 

As Canada’s leader in load and freight matching service, we transform our customers’ need into insights that deliver on their needs—we help turn empty trucks and available loads into full trucks and moved loads, and we do it better than anyone.

We are the market leader in many of our lines of business, and while our business has evolved over time, we remain committed to providing technology solutions that generate operational efficiencies and increased profitability for our customers, and enjoy longstanding relationships with them as a result.

We are committed to connecting the commercial transportation industry through a trusted and innovative marketplace, to make Canadian trucking and logistics companies more profitable.

Located in Mississauga, Ontario, TransCore Link Logistics has grown to be the largest transportation technology company in Canada, providing quality solutions to carriers and brokers of all sizes.

Our History

Before there was Loadlink, people were making connections via rolodex, or whatever was done back then. 1990 marked the year when the Canadian trucking industry found a better way to access the vast amounts of companies with available loads and trucks through the establishment of Loadlink.

Back then, Loadlink ran on 14.4 k modem, and a system running on Microsoft Disc Operating System (DOS). Then and now, Loadlink continues to be the leader in its market.
