Pride Group Logistics (PGL) has announced the official opening of their new facility in Fort Erie. Staffed by 35 employees and owner operators, the terminal is key to offering improved service in the Niagara region and supporting both LTL and Truckload growth to and from the U.S Eastern Seaboard.
Fort Erie is PGL’s fourth terminal, adding to the Mississauga, ON, Brantford, ON and Point Claire, QC locations. The terminal boasts a 9 acre secure yard, operations centre, driver facilities, multiple drive through service bays and a truck/trailer wash bay. The facility located at 933 Helena Street in Fort Erie, was purchased mid last year and occupied in November by the Niagara, PGL team. It is strategically located just 1 exit away from the Peace Bridge crossing between Fort Erie, ON and Buffalo, NY.
According to PGL Vice President, Aman Johal, “Being located 5 minutes from the border will dramatically help us increase the efficiency of our U.S. linehaul drivers as well as improve our service to local customers on both the Ontario and New York sides. We are also working on plans to construct a cross dock and freight consolidation/deconsolidation facility on the property. The Fort Erie terminal is a strategic component of our long-term vision for the company.”
