Canadian National Railway today opened its new 680-acre intermodal terminal at Calgary Logistics Park in Conrich, Alberta.
The $200 million logistics park, which has space to accommodate more than 2.5 million square feet of warehouse distribution facilities, is located between the ports of Prince Rupert and Vancouver, Jean-Jacques Ruest, CN’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer, said in a written statement.
The new facility also has access to Stoney Trail, the Trans Canada Highway and other major roadways, and is situated 10 kilometers (about 6.2 miles) from Calgary International Airport.
The terminal was relocated from CN’s Sarcee Yard in southeast Calgary, and now offers 30 percent more capacity than before, the company said.
It also offers four automated in-gates and three automated out-gates to keep truck turnaround times in the terminal below 45 minutes, a container yard for the storing of international containers and specialized equipment for temperature-controlled products.
