Derek Norman


What’s your favourite thing about working at Nortrans?
It’s always been about the people. It’s been my privilege over the past 28 years to build such great partnerships with our customers and our team.

How did you get your start in the transportation industry?
It’s tough to summarize in just one or two sentences. I’ve always had a love for trucks and wanted to go into business on my own. 28 years ago, I was in situation where I had the opportunity to help my family with some trucking needs – and the rest is history.

It’s a sunny, Saturday afternoon in August. What are you up to?
I’m probably out on the boat on Okanagan Lake with family and friends after a morning waterski. If it happens to be a cooler day, I’m out on my adventure motorcycle exploring what BC has to offer.
