A Montreal-based logistics and transportation company has cut its workweek to 35 hours and increased the number of vacation days it offers.

Robert Piccioni, CEO of Fuel Transport, said that despite seeing major technological progress in logistics and transport, the industry isn’t adequately supporting the modern logistics worker.

These policies look to change that, the company said. The new 35-hour workweek will strengthen employees’ work and personal lives with more flexibility, autonomy, and the most cherished resource of all: time.

“This is not an easy industry. It can be demanding and unpredictable, and part of why I started this company was to invest in employee health and well-being on a completely different level. Better working conditions, more balance, more time to focus on what fulfills them and enables their strongest self to show up,” said Piccioni. ”


This is what Human Intelligence (H.I.) is all about. Yes, we are majorly focused on AI and machine learning, but at the end of the day, our policy initiatives and tech investments all support the same objective – to build the strongest, highest-performing team in logistics.”

As of January 2024, new employee policies include:

  • 35-hour workweek, without affecting global compensation
  • A new Virtual Work program
  • Increased vacation days for all regular full-time employees
  • 12 weeks parental leave for all parents (in the US)
