Cascade Carriers’ origins date back to 1919 when a group of WW1 veterans started Veterans Transfer Ltd. operating out of Edmonton. After the Second World War, the company was purchased by a group of WW II veterans.

In 1932, Crone Bros. Ltd was started based in Westlock AB. and later moved to Calgary.

During the late 50’s and early 60’s, both companies set up alliances with Canada Cement (now Lafarge Canada Inc.). Veterans looked after Northern Alberta while Crones took care of Southern Alberta. In 1966, Veterans Transfer purchased Crone Bros. and continued to operate the Edmonton and Calgary terminals.

Cascade Cement Carriers Ltd. (now Cascade Carriers Ltd.) was formed by Veteran’s in 1965 to haul product into B.C., Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories.

In 1983, Siemens Transport purchased Crones/Veterans which added terminals in Saskatoon and Regina that also hauled cement for Lafarge.

Mullen Transportation Inc. (now Mullen Group Ltd.) purchased all of the Siemens/Crones/Veterans companies in March of 1996 (Saskatchewan operations were discontinued shortly after the Mullen acquisition). Veteran Transfer and Crone Bros. began operating under one name, Cascade Carriers Ltd. as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mullen Transportation Inc.
