Manitoulin Transport, which is headquartered in Gore Bay on Manitoulin Island, has opened a new terminal in Saskatchewan to enable greater shipping capacity.
Located on an 8.4-acre property, the facility is designed to serve Corman Park, Saskatoon and the surrounding area. It is equipped to handle the full spectrum of shipping requirements for the region's oil and gas, forestry, mining, and agriculture industries.
"This terminal benefits local businesses by providing easier access to distant markets they may not otherwise be able to reach," said Don Goodwill, president of Manitoulin Transport, in a news release. "Now they have a reliable full-service transportation partner right on their doorstep that can help them drive success at home, and on a global scale."
Manitoulin Transport's existing terminal operations in Saskatoon will be moved to the new facility, with incumbent employees transferring to the new premises.
This marks the latest in a series of developments by the company to expand its territory across the country, including the acquisition of nine companies in two years.
The company’s range of services includes expedited less-than-truckload and truckload, trans-border, intermodal, private fleet, guaranteed service, temperature-controlled, dangerous goods and supply chain management.
