Richmond, BC, August 3, 2010 - Western Canada Express has opened a new warehouse facility in Richmond, BC servicing the port of Vancouver's growing import, intermodal and ocean port warehousing needs.

With the addition of this warehousing facility and a new network of facilities in Alberta, Western Canada Express adds to its expanding service offerings.
"Commitment to expanding our services in Western Canada is a priority to our company. In the current economic climate expanding our network and service offerings will position our companies for growth long term" said Brett Poe, Business Development Manager Western Canada Express. "This new facility enables Portside Warehousing & Distribution to offer expanded service offerings at one of the busiest ports in North America."
Western Canada Express has also recently increased its eastbound LTL and TL capacity out of Vancouver to accommodate the increased volumes generated in this corridor and more specifically out of the Portside Warehousing & Distribution facility. This high security location is situated between all deep sea container terminals with access to railcar and intermodal services.
