Item 5.02(b) Resignation of President and Chief Executive Officer

On April 4, 2013, Richard Gaetz resigned as President and Chief Executive Officer of Vitran Corporation Inc. (the "Company or "Vitran"), and as a member of the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board"), effective immediately. Mr. Gaetz has not expressed any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company's operations, policies or practices.

Item 5.02(c) Appointment of Interim President and Chief Executive Officer

Effective as of April 4, 2013, the Board appointed William Deluce, a current member of the Board, to serve as the Interim President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. The Board will immediately commence a search to hire a permanent President and Chief Executive Officer.

In addition to being a director of the Company since April 21, 2004, Mr. Deluce, age 64, has been the Chief Executive Officer and a director of various corporations. He has been the President and Chief Executive Officer of CSAE Inc., an aircraft leasing, financing and management company, since 1998. Mr. Deluce also serves as the President of Wicklow Consulting Inc, a diversified investment company with global interests in the aviation and mining sectors. He also served as the President and Chief Executive Officer of McComas Industries International Inc. and SMT Surface Modification Technologies Inc. from 1998 to 2000. Mr. Deluce was also a director of Canstar Resources Inc. and a director of Candor Ventures Corp. until May 2005.

Mr. Deluce holds a bachelor of applied science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto.

The Company has not yet formalized an executive employment agreement or management consulting agreement with Mr. Deluce.

Immediately prior to his appointment as the Company's Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Deluce was the Chair of the Company's Compensation Committee, and also a member of the Company's Nominating and Governance Committee. However, as a result of his new duties, he has ceased to be independent under NASDAQ listing standards for director independence. Accordingly, the Board has appointed Georges Hébert to succeed him as the Chair of the Compensation Committee, and David McClimon has succeeded him as a member of the Nominating and Governance Committee.
