Our History

About Mittman Carriers

In Germany, in the late 1800’s my Great Grandfather specialized in the transportation of horses. In those days, the horses would be tied to each other with ropes and a great convoy of horses would travel along the country roads. My great grandfather would transport highly trained horses ready for the city and bring the old horses back to the to the farms or to the soap factories. When my Grandfather Karl joined the business, he saw the opportunity to bring the farm products back to the city. Based in Hamburg Germany, my grandfather was the first delivery service in Hamburg to purchase a truck for the purpose of cartage. In 1925, my Grandfather Karl made headline news when his truck rolled over in a ditch destroying a truckload of fresh farms eggs. The News Paper caption read…”This never would have happened with a horse drawn carriage, the future of motorized trucks is uncertain”.

In 1957, when my family immigrated to Canada, my Grandfather started delivering fruits and vegetables from the newly constructed “Ontario Food Terminal” in Toronto.
When my father Gerry Mittman joined the family business, he chose a completely different direction and started in the Moving Business. With all his kids working the various jobs, our family soon established what was to become Toronto’s premier Furniture Delivery business. I joined the family business in 1978 and by 1986 our family started servicing general freight of all kinds and in the 90’s we added a small fleet of temperature-controlled trailers.

Today we boast a diversified company with multiple divisions providing uncompromised ‘Best-In-Class’ services, including our core strength as an asset-based third-party logistics (3PL) provider.
