ROSSER, MAN. – Transportation company 4Tracks Ltd. has started work on a $12.5 million office, warehouse and cross-dock facility in CentrePort Canada to accommodate future growth.
The new facility is located in the Rural Municipality of Rosser lands at the inland port and sits at the intersection of CentrePort Canada Way and Rosser Road.
4Tracks has been operating at its current base at Eagle Drive in CentrePort for more than 14 years but has begun to outgrow its terminal. The new facility will be a 27,000 square foot building on 40 acres in Rosser. It is scheduled to open in fall 2022.
“We have doubled our operations over the last five years and are expecting to grow by another 20 per cent in the near future,” said Jas Brar, 4Tracks vice-president, in a statement. “Our new location is ideally situated at a major intersection within the heart of CentrePort, easily accessible for our long combination vehicles, and is the perfect fit for our growing business.”
4Tracks Ltd. employs over 350 people, servicing clients across Canada and the U.S. The site plan for the new facility allows for future expansion opportunities.
“We are thrilled that 4Tracks, an existing CentrePort company, has found a new home to grow and expand their operations,” said Diane Gray, president and CEO of CentrePort. “We are seeing an incredible demand for industrial land in the R.M. of Rosser, particularly as it relates to the logistics and trucking industry. 4Tracks’ new facility is perfectly situated to take advantage of the transportation assets and highway connectivity in CentrePort.”
CentrePort Canada is a 20,000-acre inland port in Manitoba that connects to major national and international trade gateways and corridors. It is the only inland port in Canada with direct access to trimodal transportation – truck, rail and air cargo.
