WINNIPEG, Man. — Keystone Western has announced its expansion into the US, with the addition of terminals in Minneapolis, Minn. and Fargo, N.D.
The asset-based logistics company is headquartered in Winnipeg.
“These two third-party facilities will provide cost-saving services for our clients who ship in either truckload or LTL quantities with dry van or deck equipment between Canada and the US,” said Norm Curtis, owner and president of Keystone Western. “While other transportation firms are announcing rate increases for their services, as a result of these new locations, we will be announcing service improvements, and rate reductions to many clients.”
Keystone says its new services in the US will include: cross-docking; consolidation and deconsolidation services; door-to-door LTL service on some lanes; intra-US truckload service; intra-US and transborder intermodal service; short-term warehousing and order fulfillment services (US and Canada); cross-border logistics analysis; and transportation management services.
“The cost savings driven by our new business model will be passed on to our clients allowing their companies to be more efficient, and cost competitive,” said Brian Kuzdub, vice-president of sales and marketing. “It is all part of our lean logistics vision which is an extension of many of our clients’ current internal programs. Customers of Keystone Western will now have access to a full range of cost saving cross-border services.”
