Company History

Founded on Guaranteed Service: “We sweat the details.  You don’t.”

Like many Canadian family-operated businesses, Lantrax North American Logistics began as a promise to provide better service than what existed in the marketplace.


In the 1970s, Founder and President Rod Wainwright began his career in delivery service as a part-time courier while attending Simon Fraser University. Rod established Demand Dispatch Services in Victoria offering local trucking services across Vancouver Island, Vancouver and the Lower Mainland and Air Courier services throughout North America. Returning to the Lower Mainland, Rod formed LANTRAX™ North American Logistics in 2003.


With a mission and vision statement, core values and an Assured Service Guarantee, LANTRAX™ was established to provide third party freight brokerage focussed on delivering its customers quality service.


In three years, LANTRAX™ grew from its humble beginnings to a small office. It was not long before its 17 employees relocated to a two-storey facility, with an 11,000 square foot warehouse, in the Port Kells Industrial Area of Surrey, BC.


LANTRAX™ began with a promise and the knowledge that a customer’s trust had to be earned. It is written in our core values, once we accept your order, we accept full accountability of your goods from pickup to delivery so you receive worry-free delivery anywhere.
