Why Canadian Railcars are Essential to Distribution

Rail ShippingRail is one of the most cost-effective shipping methods. It’s the shipping method that allows your business to bring goods from all over the world (using Canada’s three coasts to connect to marine shipping) close to your market, and then transfer them to truck for the final few miles of their journey.

Fast and effective, rail is much more fuel efficient than over the road shipping, which uses 1.5 – 5.5 times as much fuel, and more labour to move. In an increasingly global marketplace, it’s important to have long-range shipping of materials, from your suppliers and to your customers, at your disposal. Rail shipping gives you access to more than 75% of the North American marketplace.

That’s why we were sure to include multiple rail docks at our facility. Crossdock Manitoba is ideally located to provide all manner of shipping services. We’re in Winnipeg, at the geographic centre of the country. We’re near Canada’s largest highway, and Winnipeg’s James Armstrong Richardson International Airport, one of North America’s busiest Air Cargo hubs.

From this ideal location, we provide all manner of third party logistics services, cross-docking and warehousing included. We can help you plan and execute a supply chain management system tailored specifically to the needs of your business. Whether your goods and materials are coming from across town on a truck or across the world in shipping container on a rail car, we can help you get them where they need to be, when they need to be there.
