History

Hitting the ground running

Rosario Robert founded Robert Transportation in 1946. His ability to adapt to his clients’ needs instantly earned him their loyalty and respect.

Robert Bernard, a well-known businessman, became a partner in the company in 1962. When Rosario passed away four years later, his wife, Réjeanne, stepped up to run the business, until the next generation of the family took over the reins.

Growth through diversification

In 1973, Gérard Bernard, who came from a business administration background, and Claude Robert, a chartered accountant, joined forces to lead the family firm to further growth. In the 1980s, while the North American trucking industry was rocked by deregulation, Groupe Robert carefully positioned itself as a leading provider of supply chain logistics services.

Since then, the company has continually invested in state-of-the-art technology and provided clients with a competitive range of value-added services.

Looking to the future

Today, the third generation of the Robert family is at the helm. Backed by their respective teams and many years of hands-on experience within the company, Michel, Julie and Isabelle are dedicated to ensuring its ongoing prosperity by upholding the same passion, values, performance and commitment to clients, employees and shareholders.
