Bulk Carriers Founded Bulk Carriers (P.E.I.) Limited was founded in 1973 by its current president/owner, Jack Kelly. To this day, we remain a family business with Jack and his two sons filling key positions within the company. In the beginning, Bulk Carriers was a one truck operation focusing its resources on the hauling of bulk petroleum throughout Prince Edward Island for Gulf Canada. From there, the company expanded into the hauling of liquid asphalt.
