Never have I come to an organization that is such a breath of fresh air where the staff has such a vested interest in the company. They’re genuinely interested in doing a great job and doing right by our customers.
— Joe Tompalski, President of OCTS


There are other storage and repair companies and there are other drayage companies. OCTS is all three. Built on experience and fuelled by passion, OCTS has been helping companies store, move and repair containers since 1989. 

Overland Container Transportation Services provides safe and secure intermodal services. OCTS operates from both CN and CP terminals in Calgary and Edmonton. We deliver containers to destinations throughout Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, the Yukon, and Northwest Territories. OCTS is one of the largest container drayage provider in Alberta, we’re also proud to be the last mile for some of the world’s most prominent steamship lines and freight companies.

OCTS is a one-stop shop for freight operators. Not only do we pick up, deliver and repair, we’ll store your containers in our yard so you can avoid excessive rail yard storage fees. 

At OCTS, we’re dedicated to improving our customer’s day-to-day efficiency. We’re happy to work with our customers to get the job done right and on time.

We have two depots: 

  • Our Edmonton Terminal in Acheson provide pickups from both CN Rail and CP Rail

  • Our Calgary Yard offers convenient access to both the CN and CP terminals in Calgary.
