CALGARY, Alta. — What began as an architectural rendering and vacant land in Calgary now stands as Consolidated Fastfrate’s newest cross dock and warehouse facility.
The Canada Customs bonded facility is strategically situated next to Canadian Pacific Railway, a long-term strategic partner for Consolidated Fastfrate, and sits on 20 acres. It has 81 doors and over 100,000 square feet of warehouse and office space. The entire facility is fenced and houses an advanced security system.
“The scope and magnitude of this terminal can only be described as a structure that captures its visitor’s attention by its shear size,” comments company President and CEO Ron Tepper. “The development of this terminal compliments Fastfrate’s overall business model of providing their customers with a full menu of service offerings from warehousing and distribution to transload and ltl shipments anywhere across North America.”
The grand opening ceremonies will take place on May 29th, 2003 at 11440-54th Street S.E. in the city of Calgary.
Speaking at this event will be Rob Ritchie President and C.E.O. of Canadian Pacific Railway, and the honorable Dave Bronconnier, Mayor of Calgary. Tepper, will be conducting a tour of the facility for the corporation’s guests and clients.
“The evolution of this additional cross dock and warehouse center is a long awaited dream that has been realized for Fastfrate. Our customers have come to expect that we provide them with solutions to meet all of their logistics needs. This new warehouse will enable us to provide extended services for long or short term storage and allow for the management of our clients inventory needs,” Tepper says.
Since its inception in 1966 in Parkdale Ontario, Consolidated Fastfrate has expanded to include 17 terminals located across Canada. With the recent acquisition of Network Logistics and the exclusive partnership with Canadian Pacific Railway, the company says it can now provide customers with complete shipment solutions.
