Like his brother David, Mark Carruth got his start in the transportation game at a very early age. His career commenced with operational positions at TNT Overland Express and, in 1989, Mark moved to Yellow Freight System where he transitioned from operations into a sales-focused role and relocated to Atlantic Canada.
During his time with Yellow, Mark opened and operated 2 terminals for Yellow and was responsible for terminal operations and sales activity. In 2001, he further advanced his expertise in third-party freight management and came on board as a partner with David to head up the logistics growth for ONE For Freight in 2006.
Mark resides in Cambridge with his wife Kathryn and son Mathew. He likes to stay involved with the community and do his part to help with local YMCA initiatives.

Rick started his transportation career in operations at Midland Transport in 1994 while attending Wilfrid Laurier University. After graduation he continued his career at Midland Transport, progressing through the operational ranks and ending his time at Midland as a territory sales rep. Rick’s experience led to an opportunity to join a “1-truck start-up,” CCT Logistics (now known as CCT Canada) in 2002. As a Corporate Account Manager, Rick had sales, marketing and operational input, assisting CCT evolve into a leading intra-Canada LTL common carrier.
In a happenstance meeting with CEO David Carruth, and with a passion for working collaboratively on a solutions-based approach involving the intertwining of multiple conveyance options that married up perfectly with David’s vision to build a different kind of transportation company, Rick joined ONE For Freight in the spring of 2013 as a partner and VP of Business Development.
Like all the managing partners at ONE For Freight, Rick’s innovative spirit and experience have taken the company in exciting new directions. Rick’s dream of targeting untapped market opportunities came to fruition at ONE For Freight quickly. Rick and the team at ONE For Freight are building on that success as the company continues to challenge the borders of traditional transportation. Rick is the happy father of three and resides with his wife Kim in Dundas, Ontario.
Introduced to the world of transportation at an early age, David worked his way to success from the ground up. Starting at North American TNT, David met his long time mentor and friend John Schiller. After a decade with TNT, David followed Mr. Schiller to Sameday Right-O-Way, before starting his own business in 1992. First specializing in the home delivery market, his company grew exponentially, as did his desire for disrupting the industry and challenging the borders of traditional transportation. After selling his company to Grocery Gateway in 2001, David purchased Ontario New England Express (ONE) in 2005 and the rest is history.
Over the next decade, David and his partners quadrupled the size of the company through acquisitions, organic growth and continuous innovation. Since the purchase of ONE, David and his partners have introduced new services and established new directions for the once single-minded carrier which has been rebranded ONE For Freight.
David is the Chairman and a member of the Board of Directors for the Ontario Trucking Association. He is naturally passionate about helping people become the best they can be in business and in life. David is an avid golfer, and cherishes his family life with wife Annette and daughter Stephanie.
