CareGo’s origins trace back to Steelcare, a steel warehousing company founded in 1999 in Hamilton, Ontario. Steelcare expanded rapidly by adding businesses in related services, including truck transport, general distribution, trans-loading, green engineering, rail car repair and information technology. The group soon became Canada’s largest 3PL serving the steel industry.
In 2012 the seven related companies re-branded under the name CareGo.
Early on, the group had developed optimization and automation software to make its own facilities run more cost effectively and efficiently. The commercialization of this technology, now known as TELIA, took the company in a new direction.
In 2014, CareGo celebrated its 15th anniversary and published a company history entitled “From a Sketch on a Napkin: The Story of CareGo.”
In 2015, CareGo decided to focus on the development and marketing of its technology. The distribution (3PL) part of the business was sold to Canadian Pacific Railway, the rail repair business was sold to Genessee & Wyoming, and the head office moved to Burlington, Ontario.
From 2014 to 2019, since we published our 15th anniversary, CareGo has grown considerably, Our focus is on our technology TELIA and introducing our technology to a number of steel service centers, toll processors, 3rd party logistics & warehousing as well as steel mills. In 2019 to celebrate CareGo’s 20th anniversary we published an addendum to our story, “From a Sketch on a Napkin: The Next 5 Years, 2014-2019”.
