Montreal — Andy Transport has acquired a new terminal in Pointe-aux-Trembles, Quebec.

The facility is Andy’s largest acquisition so far, consisting of over 1,000,000 sq. ft. of land, 10,000 sq. ft of office space, 25,000 sq. ft of cross-dock and 10,000 sq. ft. of garage. The terminal will become home to Andy Transport and Tristan Cartage.

“We are excited to announce the acquisition of this terminal as it represents an excellent opportunity to further develop our footprint in Quebec,” said  Andreea Crisan, COO and EVP at Andy.

“It also represents a strategic location for Andy which allows us to get closer to our clients and employees based in the proximity of the East end of Montreal.”

Andy plans to occupy most of the vacant space available. “This acquisition was driven by many factors, including the request of our workforce living in the proximity of the terminal and wishing to reduce their time spent in traffic. The location of the site will allow us to realign some of our operations, reduce our fuel consumption as well as increase our organization’s efforts to reduce our environmental footprint”, said Ilie Crisan, president of Andy.

The acquisition is part of Andy’s strategic growth plan, which aims to strengthen its position in the East end of the Island of Montreal.
