Jim Turner has held many different positions in the transportation industry, from starting out as a 5 ton driver in Yellowknife in the early 90’s to working on the dock in Vancouver 2 years later. After a 2 year stint as a dock worker, he moved up to dock Forman for a 2.5 year period before moving on to city dispatch where he worked as a dispatcher for 2 years before moving on to their flat deck division where he worked up in Yellowknife as the lead project manager servicing the Ice Roads in the early 2000’s. Then in 2002 Jim was asked to open a division of the sister company in Vancouver as the only other presence that they had was in Alberta.
Jim has been in the Transportation industry for over 25 years with 15 of those years at a major LTL/full load flat deck carrier in Western Canada. In the early 2000’s Jim was the lead project manager for ice road projects based out of Yellowknife for the winter months servicing Canada’s Arctic. Following that in the later 2000’s Jim and Justin Case joined forces and JJ Transport was born. Both having a great deal of knowledge in the transportation industry has given JJ Transport a huge step up over competitors. Living on the west coast for the past 20 years has given Jim a good insight into the ins and outs of the docks and how they work in regards to their operations as well as good solid contacts.
Previous to working in the Transportation industry, Jim did a quick stint in the mining field in the late 80’s at Giant Yellowknife Mines where he worked in various jobs on surface and underground which gave him a good insight into heavy equipment as well as a good working knowledge of the entire mine operation.
