Industry-best intermodal service to Western Canada

The greatest volume of freight we transport from Ontario and Quebec to Western Canada is by rail. For that reason, not only do we have terminals in all major centres, Calgary takes on double duty as a strategic distribution hub for all the Western Canadian provinces.

Long-haul shipping by rail

The longer the distance the greater those advantages are. Rail is not only more economical; it adds capacity independent of long-haul driver resources. As an added environmental bonus, intermodal shipments move at a 75% lower emission rate than traditional road transport.

Game-changing intermodal transit times

Fastfrate has partnered with CP rail for over 50 years and with the launch of their new Demand Management solution, Fastfrate Group is now able to offer our customers game-changing intermodal service from Ontario and Quebec to Western Canada.
