With a fleet of 65 Kenworth C500s, ATK Oilfield Transportation provides oil rig moving services throughout the oilfields of Western Canada and Texas.

For Don Luft, looking back makes it easier to look forward. As an 18-year old, he got his feet wet in the oil and gas well servicing business by driving a Kenworth truck for Nowsco Well Service Ltd. Over the years, his truck took him into some inhospitable areas of the oil fields; he can even lay claim to being an ice road trucker as he traversed many miles of frozen river and lake roads as well as what seemed like endless miles of frozen muskeg throughout western Northern Canada. He learned that dependability and comfort were the hallmarks to a quality truck.
