Item 1.01                      Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Vitran Corporation Inc. (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries entered into Amendment No. 7 to the July 31, 2007 Credit Agreement (the “Amending Agreement”) led by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as agent (the “Agent”), and other lenders that are parties thereto (the “Lending Group”).  The Amending Agreement was dated as of December 22, 2010 and became effective December 23, 2010. The Amending Agreement amends the original credit agreement dated July 31, 2007 (the “Original Credit Agreement”) among the Company, certain of its subsidiaries, the Agent, and the Lending Group.  The Original Credit Agreement continues in full force and effect, other than as amended by the Amending Agreement and (i) Amendment No. 1 to Credit Agreement dated as of January 21, 2008, (ii) Amendment No. 2 to Credit Agreement dated as of April 10, 2008, (iii) Amendment No. 3 to Credit Agreement dated as of December 30, 2008, (iv) Amendment No. 4 to Credit Agreement dated as of March 6, 2009, (v) Amendment No. 5 to Credit Agreement dated as of May 8, 2009 and (vi) Amendment No. 6 to Credit Agreement dated as of September 17, 2009.
The following is a summary of the material terms of the amendments to the Original Credit Agreement, as amended by the Amending Agreement:
The Lending Group consented for Export Development Canada (“EDC”) to provide the Company a $3.5 million term loan for the purchase of real estate in the United States.  The EDC will have first mortgage on the real estate.

In addition, the Amending Agreement altered the definition of permitted disposition to allow for the transfer or sale of assets from one wholly-owned subsidiary to another.

Total bank commitment under the Amending Agreement remains unchanged and all other terms and fees remain unchanged.
