CORNWALL, Ont. – Seaway Express has acquired a more than 156,000 sq./ft. warehouse in Cornwall Business Park, complete with 25 truck level doors and 30-foot ceilings.
The purchases expands Seaway’s footprint in the area, which now manages more than 300,000 sq./ft. of warehouse space in Cornwall.
“This acquisition positions Seaway Express as a leader in short and long term warehousing in Eastern Ontario,” said Melanie Hamel, general manager of Seaway Express. “With our well established trucking business, we can offer our clients a one-stop solution.”
In addition to the extra space, Seaway also expanded its transportation business with a rolling stock investment over $1 million in new tractor trailers.
“Cornwall continues to grow and is acknowledged as one of the key supply chain hubs in Canada,” said Hamel. “Our location on Highway 401 and proximity to major distribution centers makes Seaway a preferred carrier in the region.”
