The Road Discounts team is composed of its two founding owners and a host of valuable employees. Here are the key members:
President and founder.
Originally from the Montérégie region in the province of Québec, he is a passionate driver who has experience in long distance road transportation.

He travels the US and Canadian roads. Since 2014, Linda Gazaille him and work together and form a dynamic duo.
At the age of 13 years old, he was initiated to truck driving in a family excavation business. Over the years, he has completed several training courses and evolved in various industries including: automotive mechanics, machining, tooling, industrial mechanics, electronics and consultative sales.
With an interest and computer skills and electronics, he's curious and did a lot of research about the equipment related to road transportation. Always on the lookout for new technologies, he enjoys discussions with representatives of various manufacturers for which he tests and evaluates certain products, including Garmin, Rand McNally and Dod.
Moreover, he is a born negotiator: he always tries to get the best value for all products and services that his friends, acquaintances and himself need.

Vice-president et founder.
She is native of the Montérégie region in the province of Quebec. Jean-François Ouellet passed his passion for cross-border transportation onto her. Following her heart and passion, she decided to change careers. In 2009 she became co-owner of Blue Rider Transport inc. Today, both are owner operators forming a team of friendly, professional, reliable, hardworking and determined truckers.
Born into a family where the quest for discounts was a way of life and hard work essential, Linda still prefers to this day to dedicate the time required to find the best price or wait for the right opportunities to save and not pay MSRP (manufacturer suggested retail price) that always seems too expensive.
Linda has had diversified interests from a young age. She has completed several trainings courses and held various jobs related to the following areas: health sciences and nursing, fitness, hairdressing, catering and beverage services, sales consulting, and road transportation law.
LL.B and Notarial Law Diploma in hand, she first developed her legal and drafting skills by practicing as a notary in her office with other partners. Recognized for her perseverance, methodical spirit and thoroughness, she seized the opportunity to continue her legal career in the provincial public service for many years. Her social skills have allowed her to excel at customer service in all areas, including the legal sector.
Her knowledge, management skills and willingness to contribute to the success and well-being of all make her a quiet strength Road Discounts. She participates in negotiations, works to drafting agreements of all kinds. In addition, she is responsible for written communications with partners and members.
