September 26, 2016 marked the official 50th birthday of Consolidated Fastfrate. Celebrations were focused on the 1,700 employees that make up the organization at each of their locations from Vancouver to Newfoundland/Labrador.
Nearly 200 employees were honoured with awards at the festivities for their over 20 years of service to the company.

All employees and drivers received a limited edition polo shirt branded with the 50th logo, along with a lapel pin showing years of service. Additional celebration elements included special anniversary trailer wraps dispersed throughout the country and a special edition newsletter that had each location sharing their story as part of the national LTL provider’s historic occasion.
Mr. Tepper commented on Fastfrate’s Canada-wide celebrations, “It’s been an interesting journey building this company and often reinventing ourselves to stay current with customer demands. Special moments like this 50th celebration make it all worthwhile. I am very proud to celebrate our history and lead this group into a future that includes many exciting new challenges. Positioning our company as a solutions provider that delivers a cohesive and integrated menu of transportation and distribution services lies directly ahead of us.“
