CALGARY, Alta. — Consolidated Fastfrate officially opened a new 100,000 sq. ft. cross-dock facility yesterday, which is adjacent to Canadian Pacific (CP) Railway’s Calgary intermodal yard.
“The addition of this new facility takes our relationship with CPR to an important new level,” said Ron Tepper, president and CEO, Consolidated Fastfrate. “This new facility helps us meet all our clients’ logistics needs with a full menu of services, including short-term storage and inventory management, warehousing, distribution, transloading and less-than- truckload shipping anywhere in North America.”
Consolidated Fastfrate has yards co-located with CP’s intermodal operations in several major Canadian cities. The company is the largest LTL consolidator in Canada. The carrier inked a 10-year, $400 million contract with CP in 2001.
“Together, CPR and Consolidated Fastfrate have become more than the sum of two parts,” said Rob Ritchie, president and CEO of CPR. “Our efficient intermodal service and Consolidated Fastfrate’s forwarding solutions combine to give our customers unparalleled logistics efficiency.”
