Our Company History

Our company history

Quality Marine Service Since 1958

From the beginning, North Arm Transportation has been a marine service company; historically it is the core of our business, which continues today.

Founded in 1958, North Arm Transportation Ltd. was a subsidiary of Stradiotti Brothers Limited to engage in the movement of petroleum products on the BC coast on behalf of Standard Oil. Over time the corporate emphasis shifted to fuel and freight work concentrated on logging and mining accounts and Chevron agency deliveries.
