More and more carriers are looking to expand or relocate to the CentrePort Canada, the country’s largest inland port. According to CentrePort, around 70% of Manitoba’s trucking companies are located there – and the number is growing.
One carrier that recently announced a move to CentrePort is Len Dubois Trucking, which will take possession of its new property this spring, and be fully operational this summer.
Another Winnipeg carrier 4Tracks Ltd. – that already operates out of a trucker-friendly Eagle Drive location of CentrePort – just acquired a 40-acre parcel of land right next to CentrePort Canada Way and plans to build a dramatically larger operation. Jas Brar, owner of 4Tracks, said even though its current location on eight acres was built in 2011, his company has quickly outgrown it and plans to be able to build facilities like cross-docks with enough space for some warehousing.
