About Us

WHO WE ARE

The professionals at Connect will build your custom logistics solution. We understand the importance of moving product safely, reliably, on time and at a reasonable cost. Building strong partnerships with all parties in the supply chain is our first priority, to ensure our customers meet commitments to their customers. Our technology, internal resources and extensive network of carriers create a value-added service you can count on.

Doug Van Fraassen, the co-founder and owner of Connect Logistics, has a significant breadth of experience in the transportation industry. He began as the owner of a successful trucking company, J.L. O’Connor Transport Inc. In 1999, he founded Connect Logistics, which began operating concurrently with his existing trucking company. Doug decided to focus on logistics because he realized the importance of adopting a customer-centric focus, rather than the traditional operational-focus employed by trucking companies. He used his existing contacts and experience to work with carriers to provide the best possible service to his clients. Connect Logistics continues to operate under his leadership today as part of Atlas Van Lines (Canada) Inc.
