TransForce Inc. to Acquire ATS Andlauer Retail Solutions Division

Montreal, September 10, 2009 – TransForce Inc. (“TransForce”) (TSX: TFI - T), the leader in the
Canadian transportation and logistics industry, today announced that it has entered into an
agreement to acquire the Retail Solutions Division of ATS Andlauer Transportation Services Limited
Partnership (ATS). The Healthcare Division of ATS will continue under its current ownership, as part
of the Andlauer Management Group Inc.


“This transaction demonstrates TransForce’s strategy of growth through selectively acquiring
leading companies with strong leadership,” said Alain Bédard, Chairman, President and Chief
Executive Officer of TransForce. “ATS Retail Solutions is an excellent strategic fit with our existing
Canpar and ICS Courier businesses. Consistent with our approach to acquisitions, it will operate as
an autonomous business and ATS President and CEO Michael Andlauer will continue to play a
leadership role as Chair of a group specifically focused on courier solutions. We look forward to
working with Michael and his team.”


The acquired Division generates approximately $120 million in annual revenues. It relies on 165
owner operators for the bulk of its business and employs a total of 447 employees. The transaction
is conditional on the signing of a definitive agreement, normal closing and regulatory conditions and
is expected to close on or about October 1, 2009.
