From Humble Beginnings…

In June of 2008, Coastal Transportation & Storage LTD (CTS) was formed. After working for North Douglas & Sysco for almost 20 years Craig Skene decided to purchase the refrigerated side of Comox Moving & Storage. CTS was born from logo’s drawn at a kitchen table and started rolling with 5 trucks and 7 employees. At that time, they serviced Port Hardy, Powell River, & Quadra Island from a 5 000 square foot warehouse.

Fast forward almost 11 years, CTS now has 26 employees and over 30 pieces of equipment (trucks & trailers). It now services all of Vancouver Island, the majority of the Gulf Islands and the Lower Mainland. It runs out of a 10 000 square foot warehouse which includes 5 000 square foot cooler, 3 000 square foot freezer, and a 2 500 square foot ambient tempered portion.

We pride ourselves on getting there when others can’t!

We Support Our Community

  CTS has been a proud sponsor of You Are Not Alone (YANA) for almost a decade. From truck decals to promote awareness, Big Love Auction sponsorship and storage for the Kid’s Clutter Sale, CTS is always willing to lend a hand. They also proudly donate to many local charities and festivals, such as Comox Valley Rotary and Vancouver Island Music Festival.

We truly appreciate the little things Coastal Transportation does to ensure the satisfaction of our valuable customers. It is partnerships like these in our industry that truly make the difference customer satisfaction.”

Andy Ellison
VP Operations, Coldstar Solutions Inc.

“What we have found most unique about CTS is their ability to never say no. Anytime a special, last minute or extra request delivery is made they are very supportive and prompt to complete these services. This is so valuable to us as we have more than the occasional requests for North Island customers to be caught without draft beer and of course need it “right now”. Because they hold stock for us in their warehouse this makes it easy for them to solve our customers problems therefore a direct reflection on our company and related services. CTS drivers are always courteous and helpful and pick up empty kegs when full ones are delivered. We value our relationship with CTS and are confident to continue working together for many years. We thank them every day for all they do!”

“CTS has been an amazing service provider and partner for many years. At Sysco, the customer is king and CTS shares that same philosophy. They are always there for us when the stakes are high, providing quick and prompt service, which is crucial for our customers. Craig and Cole are always available and willing to help when we need them most. Their reputation on the island is top-notch and truly deserved.”
