CENTREPORT CANADA RAIL PARK WELCOMES FASTFRATE GROUP AS FIRST TENANT1 August 2023
August 1, 2023 – Fastfrate Group, one of Canada’s largest privately held transportation and supply chain providers, is investing $55 million to build approximately 140,000 square feet of facilities in the CentrePort Canada Rail Park (“Rail Park”). Situated on 25 acres in the Rural Municipality of Rosser, Fastfrate Group is the first tenant to break ground in the 665-acre industrial rail park project, in development by Focus Equities Inc.
“It’s so exciting to be breaking ground today on what is an extremely important economic project for Manitoba,” said Premier Heather Stefanson. “This is just the beginning of creating more good jobs with this economic corridor. I’d like to congratulate CentrePort on this milestone, and I thank Fastfrate Group for choosing Manitoba.”
Having outgrown their existing space on Keewatin Street, the new facility, expected to be operational in the fall of 2024, will enable Fastfrate Group to rapidly expand their existing operations in Manitoba, bring new service offerings to the local market, and create upwards of 150 new jobs within the first 12 months of operation.
