MSM Canadian Transport has been named one of the 100 fastest-growing private companies in Los Angeles, according to an annual survey by the Los Angeles Business Journal. The list, published in the newspaper’s Nov. 20 edition, ranks companies according to revenue growth from 2003 to 2005. MSM Canadian Transport was 51st, with revenue increasing 69.5 percent during the three-year period.

Based in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., MSM Canadian Transport provides daily scheduled freight transportation to Canada from the Los Angeles area. It is affiliated with the MSM Group of Companies of Bolton, Ontario, a provider of transborder less-than-truckload and expedited transportation services. “We’ve established ourselves as the Canadian LTL specialist in southern California,” says John Abate, the carrier’s vice president of operations. “Our only focus is to move products in the most efficient and expedited manner from this marketplace to points in Canada.”

Abate says the company’s commitment to cross-border security and efficiency includes approval under C-TPAT, FAST and Partners in Protection; freight clears customs using PARS (Pre-Arrival Review System) and stays on the same truck all the way into Canada. “We’re proud to be ranked among the fastest-growing private companies in Los Angeles,” Abate says. “Our steady, consistent growth here means we’re helping our customers grow their business in Canada.”
