For a greener future

Proud partner of GoRecycle

GoRecycle is the only organization that transports and recycles household refrigeration appliances. Its mission is to ensure the responsible recycling of household appliances in Quebec and reduce halocarbon emissions—harmful greenhouse gasses (GHGs).

VA Elite is proud to partner with this non-profit organization and ensure the transportation of these appliances from eco-centers and numerous retailers—helping reduce waste and actively fight climate change.

How It Started

It all began in 1954 when Zéphirin Lapointe and his son André founded the company Lapointe et fils. After a few vocation changes, the company eventually specialized in general transportation.

A Family Story

Viateur Audet, André's son-in-law, also joined the adventure! A true jack-of-all-trades, he held several positions in the company. From general management to driver to billing clerk, and many other titles, Viateur's goal was to strengthen the company towards growth and a desire to specialize in the furniture and appliances transportation.

The Birth of Transport V.A.

After eight years with the company, Viateur Audet renames it Transport V.A. Inc.

Mission Accomplished

As planned, the company's evolution in the transportation of furniture and appliances is progressing. The general transportation service was abandoned to focus on the new specialization—ensuring constant growth and territory expansion.

All Is Well at the Shop

Transport V.A. Inc. was on a roll and began the construction of the Boucherville terminal to meet growing demand.

A Beneficial Deregulation

At the time, every industry in the transportation field needed a specific permit to serve certain regions, a framework that complicated the development of transportation companies. The deregulation of transportation rates and permits allowed us to serve the entire territory of Quebec and thus accelerate our growth.

Let's Go to Ontario

Transport VA now heads west. More precisely, in Brampton (Ontario), the company has decided to open its third terminal. Opening a terminal in another province with our services was a big step! This strategic decision allowed us to be closer to the distribution centers where many of our appliance customers are centralized.

A Little Wiser, A Little Further

We celebrated nearly 20 years of operation of the Boucherville terminal with an expansion! The high demand of the time led us to expand the division, seeing we also served the United States at that point (which is no longer the case).

Our Eastern Neighbours

Transport V.A. opened an additional terminal in Moncton, New Brunswick, to meet the specific needs of retailers located in the Maritimes and the demands of our shipper clients.

Together We Are Stronger

To consolidate the industry, Transport V.A. acquired the companies Nesel Fast Freight & Transport Gingras.


With over 40 years of experience under our belts, it's safe to say that at VA Total, we know all about transportation! Our goal has always been to benefit the consumer. Our personalized integration of the supply chain from the time of purchase to the point of consumption of the product allows us to offer efficient and quality service.

The company now counts 350 employees and more than 2000 customers. A small family company that has come a long way, and we are very proud of it.

Working at VA Total in a nutshell

  • Travel while you work

    Truck driving is a dynamic profession where drivers travel while they work. A trucker travels throughout throughout the provinces of Ontario, Quebec or the Maritimes, and sometimes outside his local province..

  • Low employment rate

    The latest statistics from the Ministry of Education, Recreation and Sports show an excellent employment rate for those who have completed their training in a trucking school. More than 80% of D.E.P. graduates are employed.

  • Find peace on the road

    Driving a truck on long trips often encourages drivers to unwind. Despite the workload, it is possible to enjoy the pleasures of hitting the open road, such as our magnificent Canadian landscapes.

VA Transport is a reliable and accessible B2B trucking service, and above all, we have happy and loyal customers!
