COMPANY HISTORY

Louvic Transport has been goin' down the highway smilin' since 1999. We started small – just two guys and a truck. We took pride in our equipment and worked hard to earn business. The service has always been driven by the commitment to do whatever it takes to follow through and keep our word. It is a philosophy that gives us an edge and has enabled us to grow to over 55 employees with a large fleet of trucks. Our core group of employees have decades of experience in refrigerated transportation. We do cold and we do it well!

OUR TEAM

In addition to our strong background in refrigerated goods, our team also brings other experience to the table ranging from customs brokering, to supply chain, to warehouse management. This diversity is one of our strengths and has enabled us to navigate a growing business with pride and customer-centric thinking.

RANDY SIEBEN

President + Director of Operations

Randy has had a long career in trucking, dating back to 1989. In 1994 he was given the opportunity to contract as an owner/operator with a well known carrier where he made many connections and friends in the industry. He saw an opportunity in 1999 to put all he had learned to the test. Louvic transport was founded that year. Randy’s commitment to reinvesting in the business, his pride in the equipment and his employees, has enabled Louvic to maintain a loyal customer base while the business continues to evolve.

SHANE HARTMAN

General Manager

Shane has a long history working with owner Randy Sieben. Early days were spent tag-teaming on deliveries, repairing and polishing equipment, and working hard to get ahead. This ultimately led to LOUVIC. Armed with a finance diploma from NAIT, Shane chose to start on the ground and has worked his way through all areas of the business. Shane’s breadth of experience has equipped him with the know-how to manage all areas of the business with people and relationships at the forefront. In his spare time he likes to climb mountains.

ED HALKO

Ed’s boyish charm and good looks are only the start. He's our load broker and ensures customers are taken care of effectively and respectfully! He's key to our admin department. On his off hours, Ed is a hand model and part time farmpreneur.

DALE NIELSEN, JACK CHESTER + LYNSEY NIPSHANK

Three Shipsketeers

The Three Shipsketeers! Jack has been with Louvic since 2000 and brings a tremendous amount of experience to the table. Lynsey is our head shipper and has the drive to get things done. Dale brings the third element to make this a very strong team. Together they man, or woman, the shipping department and a great crew of people. They keep the dock running efficiently – key to our success.

IZZY AHMED

Chief Pencil Pusher + Accountant Superhero Izzy (not her real name for reasons we cannot divulge), has the best smile in the company. You can tell she's smiling, even over the phone. If she's not working overtime, collecting receivables, or proofing financials, she's taking evening courses. She's a student of everything with a number.
