Transit Warehouse Auto Parts Distribution announced it has opened a new warehouse in Calgary, Alta.
Located at 4027B 7th Street Southeast, the new warehouse in Western Canada adds to Transit’s network which already includes a distribution centre in Levis on the south shore of Quebec City as well as depots in Newfoundland, Montreal, Que., and Toronto, Ont.
The combination of these facilities enables the company to ensure delivery throughout Canada within two days.
Stephan Guay, CEO of Transit, says the opening of the new warehouse is “a confirmation of the company’s commitment to its customers.
“Transit will celebrate its 40th anniversary next year. Much has been done since the beginning, starting from a single man’s project, and then progressively becoming a company with nearly a hundred employees. Everything sprouted in a little neighbourhood called Pintendre and is now blossoming across Canada. It is a great sign of growth and achievement.”
The new warehouse provides some logistic opportunities, he says. In the mid-term, the transportation of goods between Levis and Calgary will be done by railways, which are more environmentally friendly than road transport. “When we talk about tons of parts over distances of several thousands of miles, we can hardly ignore the impact it can have on the environment,” he says.
