Customer Bulletin: UPDATE – Wildfires in Western Canada

22 August 2023

We have been closely monitoring the situation in Kelowna and Yellowknife. As of today, we have started to send freight to Kelowna and the branch has started to deliver those shipments to our customers.

However, we are still closely monitoring, as the situation can quickly change, and to ensure the safety of our team, we will halt operations if needed. We will continue to update you.

For Yellowknife, the area is still under evacuation therefore there are no shipments going out and Edmonton is still holding all Yellowknife freight until the evacuation order has been lifted.

If your shipments have been impacted, our dedicated customer service team will keep you updated on the latest developments. We are committed to providing regular updates and appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Thank you for choosing Fastfrate, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
