The astrologers say that when people under the sign Libra set goals for themselves, they are determined to succeed. Although Francis Kohlman is no believer in astrology, that description fits him perfectly and the proof is found in the success of Libra Transport(B.C.) Ltd.

Francis Kohlman has been driving trucks since the late 1940s, but always as an owner operator leased to another company. However in 1976, he and his wife, Ollie, decided to strike out on their own. They formed Libra Transport (B.C.) Ltd. with one truck (a 1976 Kenworth), one driver(Francis), and one dispatcher(Ollie, who kept her “day” job).

Libra started very slowly and carefully with their first customer being Canadian Salt in Alberta. Bit by bit we grew and acquired for operating authorities. We have worked hard to earn the confidence of our customers and operators. As a family run business Libra has made a name for itself by focusing on reliability, good operators and good equipment.

Libra is now an interprovincial contract carrier providing flat-deck freight transportation throughout western Canada. We haul a variety of products including palletized salt, steel products, lumber and building products. Despite the ups and downs of the economy our growth has been steady.
