Canadian Pacific announced the opening of its new Intermodal Facility at Saskatchewan’s Global Transportation Hub (GTH) in Regina. The larger and more efficient facility, located on a 300-acre industrial footprint, is strategically positioned adjacent to CP’s mainline between Regina and Moose Jaw and increases capacity and service reliability for intermodal customers with enhanced and more competitive services.

“The actual concept and development of GTH began over five years ago and was predicated on CP relocating its Intermodal Facility from downtown Regina to our current site,” says Chris Dekker, President and CEO of GTH. “Today, as an anchor client of GTH, we congratulate CP on completing its transition to our site and for its continued commitment to Saskatchewan’s unprecedented new growth and development.”

The new intermodal facility is designed to process up to 250,000 container handlings per year, or five times more container handlings per year when compared to CP’s former Regina terminal. “The opening of the new intermodal terminal will contribute to CP’s commitment to supporting further growth with our customers and improving supply chain efficiency in the region,” said Jane O’Hagan, Executive Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer. “This new facility, along with CP’s ten other intermodal locations, will enhance our competitive access to key North American and world markets.”

Canadian Pacific joins Loblaws, Consolidated Fastfrate (CFF) and the Yanke Group of Companies in locating to GTH, which encompasses about 1,700 acres of serviced land.

O’Hagan added that Global Transportation Hub is a positive extension of the railway’s co-location strategy. “CP’s co-location strategy positions key customer distribution centres adjacent to high-capacity intermodal facilities to drive superior efficiencies and service levels. GTH will offer these same advantages to the Saskatchewan market.”
