TORONTO, Ont. — FedEx Freight Canada, the newly-formed subsidiary of FedEx Freight that provides intra-Canada and transborder less-than-truckload (LTL) service, officially unveiled its new combined national headquarters and 48 dock-door service centre, located in Toronto.
Formerly Watkins Canada Express, FedEx Freight Canada officially began operations in February. The company provides all-points coverage to more than 7,000 cities in 10 of the country’s provinces, as well as transborder service for shipments to and from the US and other locations.
“This new facility establishes a strong base from which FedEx Freight Canada will quickly expand its operations across the country,” said Grant Crawford, vice-president and general manager, FedEx Freight Canada. “From British Columbia to Nova Scotia, we offer LTL customers the service excellence and reliability they’ve come to expect from the FedEx brand.”
In addition to Toronto, FedEx Freight Canada offers pickup and delivery service through a growing network of facilities that includes Vancouver, Winnipeg, London, Calgary and Montreal.
With an aggressive growth plan underway, FedEx Freight Canada also plans to add service centres in Ottawa, Cambridge, Edmonton, Halifax, and Quebec City, and open expanded facilities in Winnipeg and Calgary during the next several months.
“When you combine FedEx Freight Canada with FedEx Freight and FedEx National LTL, we provide a full range of complementary LTL solutions throughout North America,” said Doug Duncan, president and CEO of FedEx Freight. “We’re committed to continuing the enhancement of our operations in Canada to better serve our customers.”
