Established in 1933, A.J. Weigand Inc. has been dedicated to providing safe, reliable, and professional service for over 80 years. When Adam J. Weigand began the company in Dover, Ohio, he had nothing more than one small dump truck to haul bulk materials and coal in and around Tuscarawas County. The opportunity was clear; build a business by offering superior services to customers, one load at a time.
By 1945 the company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Ohio and obtained I.C.C authority and P.U.C.O authority for transporting building materials, liquid chemicals, and general freight. The evolution of A.J. Weigand would see them grow and diversify exponentially over the next 50 years. The business was owned and operated by the Boynton Family from the 1960's to 2006 when AJ Weigand joined the Seaboard Transport Group.
In 2012 the Seaboard Transport Group introduced the Harmac North America Brand which includes our AJ Weigand operations as well as the Harmac Logistics Division to their operating groups.
Today, A.J. Weigand specializes in liquid chemical transportation and includes among its customers many of the largest chemical companies in the United States and Canada.

Seaboard Transport was incorporated in 1964 as Seaboard Liquid Carriers with one truck and one trailer transporting Petroleum products throughout Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Through the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s, Seaboard continued to grow by acquiring various transport companies in the province of Nova Scotia.
Seaboard Liquid Carriers became known in the 1990’s as Seaboard Transport Group as it diversified its business to include the specialization in petroleum and bulk mining commodities along with a specialized freight division. In the mid- 1990’s, the Seaboard Transport Group solidified its presence as a leader in transporting bulk petroleum with the acquisition of Lake City Transport.
In 1998 Seaboard acquired Harmac Transportation, a petroleum and liquid chemical transporter, resulting in Seaboard becoming a bulk carrier with coverage from Ontario to Newfoundland with many transport lanes throughout the United States. Harmac Transportation was at that time known as a leader in the petroleum transportation industry in Ontario. It was during this purchase that the marketing image became Seaboard/Harmac. This new image emphasized the combination of two great bulk liquid carriers and further solidified the Seaboard Transport Group as a leader in the transportation of bulk petroleum and chemical products in Eastern Canada.
The growth of the company continued with the acquisitions of Great Western Resources, a dominant propane carrier in Ontario, and Tudhope Cartage, a major petroleum carrier in both Ontario and Quebec. Expansion continued into the United States with the 2006 acquisition A.J. Weigand, a bulk chemical carrier located in Bolivar, Ohio with a terminal in South Carolina. In 2012, the Seaboard Transport Group introduced the Harmac North America Brand which includes the AJ Weigand operations as well as our Harmac Logistics division.

In 2011, Seaboard further expanded the organization’s footprint in Western Canada with the acquisition of Wiebe Transport; based in Grande Prairie with terminals in Sherwood Park, La Crête and British Columbia.
