Manitoulin Transport is celebrating the opening of a new terminal in Kingston, Ont.

In an Oct. 9 news release, the company said the new terminal provides increased shipping capacity and ensures Manitoulin can meet future customer demand as economic growth in the area continues.

Manitoulin Transport president Jeff King said it was gratifying to enter a community and contribute to its success.

The company is aiming to fill a demand for quality, locally provided freight transportation services.

"We have partnered successfully with businesses in other parts of the country to help them meet their supply chain objectives and intend to do the same in Kingston,” King said in a news release.

“Our customers choose Manitoulin for several reasons; we have the most direct shipping coverage in Canada, we simplify their shipping through our technology, and our more than 4,000 pieces of transportation equipment provides the shipping reliability they expect.

“As well, our customers have access to Manitoulin Group’s broad suite of global transportation and logistics solutions which can satisfy all of their supply chain needs.”

A member of the Manitoulin Group of Companies, Manitoulin Transport offers an array of transportation solutions, including expedited less-than-truckload and truckload, transborder, intermodal, private fleet, guaranteed service, heavy haul, temperature-controlled, dangerous goods and supply chain management.

The company was started in Gore Bay, on the west end of Manitoulin Island, in 1960 by Doug Smith and remains a family-owned and -operated company.
