Induction into Junior Achievement Hall of Fame
“P.E.I. business leaders to be inducted into Junior Achievement hall of fame.”
Jack and Carlotta Kelly will be inducted into the Junior Achievement Hall of Fame in May 2019, and we couldn’t be happier and more proud of them!
Both from Cornwall, they married young and started the business in 1970 in the basement of their house. Three years later, they incorporated Bulk Carriers, It was just the two of them in the early days of the business. The company now has about 150 employees, 100 tractor-trailers and 160 refrigerated trailers.
They started out transporting fuel and petroleum products to service stations on the Island for companies like Gulf Oil. By the mid-1980s, they transported the majority of petroleum products on the Island for a variety of oil companies.
In the early 2000s, the Kellys switched from the “high points and low points” of transporting petroleum and asphalt products to focus solely on food transportation.
