“Treat people right. If you stick to that, you’ll do okay.” - Dale Dubinsky, Co-Founder

Our Company History

  1. Two Brothers Making Their Mark

    Pioneer was started in 1987 by Dale and Miles Dubinsky with a single truck. The two brothers shared the wheel until they had enough to buy a second truck. In the first year of operations, the Company won a contract to haul 30km of 16-inch pipe, a job requiring 30 trucks. Pioneer was able to assemble the resources needed, and complete the job on-time, on-budget, and accident-free. The client remains a customer of the Company to this day.

  2. The Corridor Pipeline Project

    Pioneer successfully executed on a major project hauling and stringing pipe for the Corridor Pipeline in Alberta for Midwest Pipelines. The Corridor pipeline system transports bitumen from the Athabasca Oil Sands Project (AOSP) near Fort McMurray, Alberta to the oil processing and marketing hub near Edmonton, Alberta, and comprises 1,000 kilometres of pipeline.

  3. TransCanada Keystone XL

    Pioneer was awarded the scope of work to haul 550km of pipe for the TransCanada Keystone XL project from Camrose, AB, to the US border, a project which was completed on time and on budget without incident. The success of this initial contract resulted in Pioneer servicing the contractor on the project over the course of the next decade. Pioneer also provided service directly to TransCanada over the course of the project.

  4. Camrose, AB Storage Facility

    Pioneer purchased and developed on 37 acres of land in Camrose, Alberta and built a 35,000 square foot warehouse to house their expanding fleet of tractors and trailers.

  5. Expanding Pioneer Truck Lines

    in 2018 Pioneer expanded into the United States, establishing Pioneer Truck Lines USA, and opening up their head office in Houston, Texas. In 2018, Pioneer Truck Lines USA was awarded their first pipeline stringing job in the US. In addition, Pioneer recognized an opportunity to expand the business through acquisition, allowing them to leverage their expertise and advantages in complementary markets. In 2018, the Company acquired Headwater Transportation, an oilfield hauling business, as well as Fox's Transport, a cross-border freight business.

  6. Pioneer Truck Lines Today

    Today, the Pioneer Group has established a reputation as a provider of choice for specialized transportation in Western Canada and in the U.S. Our core pipeline hauling expertise is complemented by a diverse range of additional service offerings that provide increasing economies of scale and compelling growth opportunities.
