T-Lane Nation Customer Concierge and CEO – Tim Germain

Timothy Germain (FINALIST)
CEO, T-Lane Nation

Timothy Germain got his start driving school buses, but he always had his eye on bigger vehicles–and bigger plans. At the age of 23, Germain got his licence to drive semi-trailers, bought his own truck and began driving short-haul routes around the Lower Mainland. By his late 30s, with a young family in Coquitlam, he saw an opportunity for “a surplus of growth and profit,” as he puts it, but he was unable to find a partner to share the costs of starting up: “None had the confidence nor risk-taking gumption to jump on board.” So with one dispatcher and one truck, he began T-Lane Nation in 2000, putting up his house as collateral. Taking those risks, he notes, “paved the T-Lane road” for his eventual success. The company–which specializes in moving unwieldy or dangerous materials, like power generators or cranes, to remote corners of the province–has since grown into a 250-person operation, with 11 offices and six warehouses across Canada and clients ranging from BC Hydro to the Department of National Defence. In 2014, T-Lane Nation had $45 million in annual revenue, which Germain hopes to grow to $100 million in five years’ time.
