Diversified (Edmonton) Employee Transportation services continue to support the petrochemical, energy and construction sectors by providing safe and reliable transportation of the Alberta workforce. In the early 1960's Diversified Transportation pioneered the transportation system during the building of the Sherritt Gordon plant in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. At that time we were convinced that trades workers could be safely transported to major construction outside of major cities, effectively and efficiently.
Since introducing our employee transportation service we have moved hundreds of thousands of workers safely to a broad range of work sites throughout the Edmonton, Central Alberta and Fort McMurray regions.
