Quickload began operations in 2007 with the commencement of container operations at Fairview Container Terminal. We operate as a 3PL with our own yards, warehouse facilities, handling equipment and chassis, and manage our dray operations using contracted drivers.
Our first business was the Prince Rupert Container Examination Facility which Quickload constructed and operates on a long term concession agreement with the Port of Prince Rupert through our CFS Ridley location.
We subsequently began loading lumber into containers for export and have grown this business segment in partnership with our forest products producers, purchasing a cross dock warehouse and developing yard space at our CFS Rupert. We use CFS Rupert to conduct expedited transloads which are a growing segment of our business.
Quickload commenced operation of an empty container depot (CYD) in August 2018 and envisions growing this business into a broad based container yard as the needs of our customers and port partners evolve over the next few years.
