Palm-TreeThe longer days, the warmer weather and the beautiful sights, sounds and smells of seasonal change are in the air, which can only mean one thing – Spring is here! And with its arrival, Contrans Flatbed Group is about to begin its annual flower run alongside local Delhi grower, Fernlea flowers. As one of North America’s largest greenhouse operators (with over 100 million plants growing in their greenhouses each spring), Fernlea Flowers relies on the expertise of Contrans Flatbed Group to deliver mother nature’s delightful gifts to big names such as Lowes, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Walmart and more. With so much to deliver in such a short season, Contrans Flatbed Group is currently hiring new DZ drivers to help us during this busy season – a season which will deliver some 2 million hanging baskets to garden centres and large retailers in the Toronto, Niagara and London regions.

Depending on the weather, our annual flower run begins early April and runs until the end of June. With over 450 loads delivered last year, Contrans Flatbed Group again looks forward to delivering such a wonderful commodity and playing our part in making the world a lot brighter!

And for those of us up here in the North, the above photo will give us just a touch of the South. On a 2014 Fernlea run, one our our drivers got to deliver this interesting load – a full-sized palm tree to a lucky sunny residence.
