Alberta Pilot Truck Alliance Ltd. (APTA) was created in 2011 with the clear objective to provide the most professional, best trained and safest pilots possible.

APTA Approach

APTA Approach

Since Alberta Pilot Truck Alliance opened in 2011, we have grown to over 20 highly -trained pilots, light turners and traffic control team who have the experience to ensure that your over-dimensional loads reach their destination safely.

APTA's highly-trained pilots are all Owner-Operators, and are invested in providing the highest quality services for our clients.  Each pilot operates a fully-equipped late model 4×4 pick-up truck to ensure maximum reliability. APTA has adopted the use of dash cameras in all vehicles to record any issues during a job; this policy has proven beneficial in a number of instances for our clients.

APTA pilots are provided with in-depth classroom training using the Canadian Pilot Truck Training Program. This course was developed over a 10-year period including actual on-road experiences.  Each pilot also receives over 140 hours of on-road training, and mentoring.

Alberta Pilot Truck Alliances' office is fully integrated with our on-road team using tablets, smart phones and Microsoft Office for Invoicing and communication. Field work can be supported by our mobile on-site office trailer.
