The focus then and now was to bring personalized service to the expedited requirements of Canadian and US shippers with regular and time-sensitive LTL, truckload and over dimensional shipments to and from the continental United States and right across Canada. Multiple levels of service and varied equipment types are available to Mighty customers on both sides of the border.
Tim Wilson - President
Tim lived in South America as a self-reliant child. From the age of 13, he started earning money washing dishes. At 18, he decided that he will not do the “good student route”, and quit school after graduating high school. He immediately started little companies, then worked in the restaurant industry for 17 years. The restaurant years turned out well for Tim. But, eventually, he found himself wanting more.
He soon landed a job as a sales rep for a trucking company, and absolutely loved it. Advanced quickly, but lost a lot of business to freight brokers. So, he decided to take a new job with a freight broker. Spent 3 months there, quit, and started up his own freight brokerage.
Then Mighty Expedite was born. Tim yanked his father out of retirement to help get the company off the ground. The initial HQ was a ten-by-ten spare bedroom in Wilson’s home. In no time, the company was looking for a new home. Tim’s father went back to enjoying his retirement after spending 15 years with the company.
In 2015 Tim Wilson purchased the not for profit Ancaster Avalanche Junior Hockey Club who play in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (Junior B) and after 2 seasons Tim moved the Team to Hamilton, Ontario. Tim made a deal with Stuart Hyman who owned the rights to the historic Hamilton Kilty B’s. The Kilty B’s were born again. They play out of the Dave Andreychuk Mountain arena aka: THE HIVE on the same night as they did in the 70’s. Monday nights.
In 2020 Tim Wilson took over the not for profit Dundas Blues Junior Hockey Club who play in the Provincial Junior Hockey League (Junior C) out of their original arena the JL Grightmire, aka: THE MARKET. Their home nights are Thursdays.
This year Tim started a new team in his hometown called Erin Blitz. The Blitz are entering the WOSHL, a Senior AA league with an elite level of hockey consisting of aged-out Junior A, B and C hockey players, OHL, NCAA, European pros and NHL players as well. The BLITZ will be made up of players, staff and volunteers from the community.
