Now called FedEx Freight Canada, the subsidiary of FedEx Freight has just opened a new combined national headquarters and 48 door service center in Toronto. Over the course of the next few months, the carrier will be adding service centers in Ottawa, Cambridge, Edmonton, Halifax and Quebec City. These are in addition to those already in the network in Vancouver, Winnipeg, London, Calgary and Montreal.
Grant Crawford, vice president and general manager of FedEx Freight Canada, says, “This new facility establishes a strong base from which FedEx Freight Canada will quickly expand its operations across the country. From British Columbia to Nova Scotia, we offer LTL customers the service excellence and reliability they’ve come to expect from the FedEx brand.”
In pointing to its important services, FedEx Freight Canada, claims, “Transborder crossing using Canada's Pre-Arrival Review System (PARS) and Pre-Arrival Processing System (PAPS), which enable Canada and U.S. Customs to review shipments en route to the border gateway—reducing delays and providing quicker delivery; enhanced shipment visibility from pickup to delivery, using a single identification number; conveniently determined pricing between most US ZIP codes and Canadian postal codes; an online rate calculator to quickly and easily determine specific rates; and, a dedicated bilingual Canada Solutions Team to assist customers with their transborder shipping requirements.”
