Fastfrate investing millions into western Canadian expansion

by Truck West

WOODBRIDGE, Ont. – Consolidated Fastfrate is investing nearly $20 million to purchase a new $10 million facility in Edmonton, a $1.5 million expansion in Winnipeg and $5.5 million to add 238 intermodal chassis to its container transport operations.

“These are exciting times for our company,” said Fastfrate CEO Ron Tepper. “We believe in our future and continue to invest in our Canada-wide network of asset based LTL road and rail services. But more than that, we are putting our considerable knowledge and experience into creating ‘thinking solutions’ geared to our customers’ more sophisticated transportation and distribution requirements.”

Fastfrate will also soon be announcing its expansion south of the border.

“No privately held transportation provider has our particular combination of facilities, resources and talent,” Tepper said. “We are truly a multi-faceted transportation and distribution network, coast to coast in Canada.”
