Challenger Motor Freight heads west

ALDERGROVE, B.C. — Challenger Motor Freight is getting ready to open a new 10-acre terminal in Aldergrove, B.C., which will more than double its previous space.

The location will include offices and a drivers amenities center and will allow for future expansion in the region.

“Challenger’s B.C. operation has seen double-digit growth each of the past four years,” said Brian Jones, regional manager for Challenger. “We began operations in the west 14 years ago primarily as a service to one of Canada’s largest couriers. It’s now home to more than 100 B.C. drivers and inside staff, and we’re still growing.”

The new terminal brings truck maintenance, service, and refuelling in house, and complies with the U.S.’s C-TPAT, counter-terrorism security regulations, for yard safety.

Challenger aims to develop further regional business to B.C., Alberta, Washington, and Oregon through their western operation with an extensive fleet of tandem, tridem, and quad axle trailers.

"We’ve become a major player in western Canada’s tri-axle and the U.S. quad-axle business, quadrupling our volumes within the Pacific Northwest and Alberta/B.C. in the last 2 years, and we’ll be exploring new opportunities in drayage, warehousing, air and ocean services through our Logistics Division,” Jones says.

A date for Challenger’s Aldergrove open house is expected soon.
