Transportation Career Options in Montreal

A trucking career can involve much more than simply driving a truck. Trucking, or the transportation operations industry, can cover a wide range of career opportunities. Consider, for example, the definition given to transportation operations by Industry Canada: “The trucking sector consists of those companies that move goods by means of road transport (carriers). It includes firms that undertake the transport of goods for compensation (for-hire carriers), the trucking operations of firms that maintain their own fleets of vehicles (private carriers), and the business of owner-operators who haul trailers or other equipment using their own trucks (either leased or owned).”

  • Operations Managers
  • Logistics & Brokerage Clerks
  • Local Dispatchers
  • Highway Dispatchers
  • Driver Managers/Trainers/Recruiters
  • Load Planners
  • Safety & Compliance Officers
  • Log Book Auditors
  • Fleet Maintenance Officers
  • Loss Prevention Administrators
  • Warehouse Supervisor
  • Customer Service Rep
  • Sales

These trucking careers all have very different earning potential, though generally speaking, starting salaries in the transportation operations industry are quite high. Graduates from the Dispatching and Transportation Operations Program are well positioned to take advantage of the high demand for trained graduates, and may be hired by major transportation companies.

David R. Lennox Transportation Operations and Dispatching

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at the ATC for their dedication to the Dispatching & Transportation Operations program. When I first walked through the front door I was greeted by Rebecca, Ricardo, and then it just got better. Once in the classroom, Jerry made us feel like we were going to conquer the world.

When I first started I wondered what had I gotten into, but as the weeks went by and I immersed myself in the weekly segments, I found that I could learn and retain what Jerry was trying to teach us. Jerry’s vast knowledge of the trucking industry was very much appreciated and made it so that I wanted to learn more.

Jerry seemed to like giving us lots of tests, but in the end it paid off, with 19 weeks in class, 4 weeks out in practicum, and then a final week to refresh and study for the final exam was very fulfilling.

I also enjoyed how all the staff encouraged us to stick with it and that in the end it would be worth it, and would take the time to talk with us even though we were all very busy.

Once again, thank you for all the help!
