TransForce Inc. Acquires 100% of Laflèche Environmental Complex

Montreal, March 2, 2010 – TransForce Inc. (“TransForce” or “the Company”) (TSX: TFI - T), the
leader in the Canadian transportation and logistics industry, today announced it has completed the
acquisition of the 50% of Laflèche Environmental Inc.’s landfill and environmental complex in Moose
Creek, Ontario not already owned by Matrec, the Company’s waste management subsidiary .


Matrec increased its ownership in the complex from 37.5% to 50% in 2008. In addition to its
valuable landfill operations, the complex provides a range of environmental services including
recycling, composting, soil treatment, and waste water treatment, all aimed at diverting waste from
landfill, and is developing a project to convert methane gas into electricity. Licenced landfill sites
are increasingly rare in Ontario and the Laflèche complex is working to minimize the materials sent
to landfill.


“The Laflèche environmental complex is a very important strategic asset for Matrec, strengthening
its competitive position in Eastern Ontario, and serving as a model for its other operations,” said
Alain Bédard, Chairman, President and CEO of TransForce. “Matrec is performing well despite the
current economic conditions and we expect this acquisition to further improve its ability to control
costs and increase margins in its waste management business. We are particularly pleased that the
operation’s founder and Matrec’s former partner, André Laflèche, will remain as a consultant to the
high-quality business he created and will continue to provide guidance for the further development
of recycling services.”


The acquisition of the remaining 50% of the Laflèche complex closed on March 1, 2010 and financial
terms were not disclosed. It is Matrec’s fourth landfill-related transaction in the past [three] years.
